Target revamps stores for those in a rush, those who ramble

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Target is embarking on an ambitious redesign aimed at helping people who need to dash in for milk to get out quickly while encouraging those who want to wander the aisles to linger.

The new layout was unveiled Monday in Las Vegas by CEO Brian Cornell. It will feature a separate entrance and 10-minute parking for shoppers looking to pick up an online order or some essentials.

The first of the redesigned stores will open in suburban Houston this fall. About 40 more stores will get the remodel treatment by October. More than 600 of Target's 1,800 total locations are scheduled for updates over the next three years.

Target has also tested new store designs in Dallas and Los Angeles, but Houston's is the most ambitious store redesign to date.
