“With a larger grocery department in many of our Target stores, we are
offering an even more convenient shopping experience for our guests, providing
them more time to gather at the table for holiday meals,” said Annette Miller,
senior vice president of grocery, Target.

At remodeled Target stores, approximately 10,000 square feet is dedicated to a
selection of affordable and quality fresh food choices, including a curated
assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods,
in addition to dry and frozen offerings. Throughout the holiday season, in
addition to no-fuss appetizers and staples like stuffing and gravy, guests can
find fresh meal must-haves such as spiral-cut ham, turkey, cranberries, sweet
potatoes, green beans, pomegranates, mini pumpkins and gourds, holiday cookies
and pies.

Perfect for holiday hostess gifts or entertaining, Target is also offering a
limited-time-only assortment of Archer Farms coffees including Pumpkin Spice
and Caramel Coffee, in addition to a delicious trail mix, Archer Farms Butter
Toffee Caramel Clusters.

Beyond the grocery aisles, most of Target’s remodeled general merchandise
stores feature updates in other areas to further enhance the shopping
experience for guests. In the beauty aisles, guests will experience a more
visual environment, making it easier to browse a mix of everyday essentials
and exclusive brands. The home department offers easier navigation with wider
aisles and lower product displays. The shoe department is now more comfortable
with additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department is easier to shop
with broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel.
