The Target store in downtown Los Angeles is opening on Sunday in the Fig at 7th retail center.
The 104,000-square-foot store, one of the retailer’s smaller-footprint CityTarget locations, will serve as the anchor for one of the neighborhood’s biggest shopping centers currently undergoing a $40-million renovation.
Although there’s still construction going on, come Sunday, shoppers will be able to descend from the busy sidewalks down a grand staircase to the store’s entrance.
Inside, many of the store’s 250 red-shirted workers were buzzing around one recent weekday loading shelves, putting together displays and lining up for a caffeine jolt at the Starbucks inside that is already up and running. A digital board at the entrance will relay info such as the weather and weekly deals.
Like other CityTargets, the downtown store caters to a decidedly urban customer with an expanded collection of items for apartment living along with a broad assortment of food and produce, including more Latino options. The store also has more stationery items for office workers, but devotes less real estate to departments such as toys and sporting goods
