New design targets quick trippers and aisle skimmers

Brian Cornell, Target’s CEO, presented the new layout in Las Vegas on Monday, the Associated Press reported.

The new design has a separate entrance and 10-minute parking for those who just need to run in to pick up an online order or grab necessities.

But that’s not the only change, the AP reported.

Center aisles will be curved instead of the the traditional square shape.

Target’s senior vice president of properties, Mark Schindele, said that it will help allow shoppers to explore the store.

The retailer is also swapping out lighting, replacing the current fluorescent fixtures with LED lighting and adding brand boutiques that will make the box store feel like it has specialty stores in the locations.

The first stores with the new look will open outside Houston this fall. An additional 40 will be updated in October with more than 600 locations being updated over the next three years.
