    Target Launches First TargetExpress

    Target launched its first TargetExpress store on July 27 near the company's corporate headquarters in Minnesota. Located in Minneapolis' Dinkytown neighborhood, the 20,000 square foot store is the smallest in the chain. CBS Minnesota reported it's the 1/6 the size of a traditional Target store, and 1/9 the size of a Super Target. The company has positioned the new store near the University of Minnesota, making it a good draw for college students. The TargetExpress comes after the retailer spent months canvasing the neighborhood to see what the public would want from an urban store location. The store is designed for “filler trips,” says store manager Karl Anderson.
