Target is preparing to open two more small-format stores in the D.C. area on November 10.
One of the two new locations will open in Tenleytown, at 4500 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, taking the spot previously occupied by a Best Buy, and the other is planned to open in Ivy City, at 1515 New York Avenue, NE.
The New York Avenue spot measures nearly 67,000 square feet, including a Starbucks, while the Wisconsin Avenue one will be approximately 46,000 square feet. Both stores will have a CVS pharmacy.
A total of 200 people will be employed at the two new places.
The small-format stores that the company opts for in dense urban areas offer products that cater to locals in those neighborhoods.
Target opened two stores of the same format last April at 7828 Georgia Avenue NW in Shepherd Park, Ward 4 and at 3505 Connecticut Ave. NW in Cleveland Park, Ward 3.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser had attended a store preview and ribbon cutting at the Shepherd Park location, along with Ward 4 Councilmember Brandon Todd.
Other small Target stores in the area are in College Park, Bethesda, Falls Church, and Eastern Avenue, NW.
Target has around 70 stores in the D.C. and Baltimore area with almost 8,000 employees.
