TargetExpress is coming to College Park.
The new “urban-format” store will be located on the first floor of the student housing building on the site of the old Maryland Book Exchange on Route 1 and College Avenue, according to the Washington Business Journal:
TargetExpress stores skew toward grocery offerings, with food, household items, health and beauty products. The College Park TargetExpress could follow the model of the first-ever TargetExpress, which is also located near a large university — the University of Minnesota — and carries a fair amount of school supplies.
The College Park location is smaller than many of the stores that Target has announced thus far, most of which range from 20,000 to 30,000 square feet. TargetExpress is a fraction of the size of a big-box Target, which averages about 135,000 square feet.
The store will have most of your day-to-day needs, such as shampoo, pencils and bananas, but not some of the other bigger items typically sold at Target like bicycles and toys.
