Target in North Richland Hills is getting a makeover! Target has launched a $220 million program to renovate 28 stores in North Texas and our NRH location is on the renovation list.
With their next generation of store design, Target is investing to take the shopping experience to the next level by offering more elevated product presentations and a number of time-saving features. The retailer is evolving it’s floorplan by offering two separate entrances, each with a specific guest need in mind. One entrance is geared toward the traditional Target shopper, who will "find displays of exclusive brands and inspiring seasonal moments," according to the company's press release. The second entrance is designed "for easy pickup of online orders and groceries," Target says. Displays of food, beer, and wine will be right inside the door, as will self-checkout lanes and spots for returns, exchanges, and online order pickup. Outside this entrance will be dedicated parking spaces where customers can remain in their cars and online orders will be delivered by store employees.
Other design elements include woodgrain fixtures and curved, more circular center aisles with merchandise displays. The grocery section will include a robust assortment of fresh produce as well as quick grab-and-go options and meal solutions. By the end of the year, the company is also hoping to equip team members with new technology that will search inventory, arrange delivery, and accept payment through a mobile point-of-sale system, all from the sales floor.
The North Richland Hills Target is one of 40 (out of a total 1,806 US locations) selected for the new store design. Currently, the Watauga and Euless stores are undergoing renovations to be ready by June. The North Richland Hills store (located at 8532 Davis Boulevard) will begin construction soon, with an expected completion date in October 2017. Guest feedback and learnings from this new design will influence Target’s customized approach to the 500 stores being reimagined in 2018 and 2019.
