PHOTOS: Target Adds More Groceries, Expansion Now Open

The new and improved Target is complete.

The Clark Target store expansion opened on Oct. 14. Check out our photos of the new space.

The store's expansion – into the next-door space formerly occupied by Marshall's (which moved to new digs across the parking lot in February) and Payless Shoes – includes an open-market grocery layout. New food additions include items such as bananas, strawberries and bagged lettuce; ground beef, chicken and pork; baked goods and dairy. The store also now offers a dry, dairy and frozen assortment and convenience foods such as snacks and beverages.

In August, the store's new Starbucks opened for business. (See a photo of it in our gallery.)

Target piloted this new expanded food format, which they call PFresh, in 2008 at two existing stores in Minnesota. Based on the program’s success, Target began testing the new layout at several other locations across the country in early 2009.

I am not really interested in buying groceries in Target. I would have preferred more home decor items.

Now that the expansion is complete, maybe they can start restocking the rest of the store. I've noticed many empty shelves over the last couple months. Also, the quality of the employees has declined significantly!

I'm surprised that they didn't put in a second set of doors to come and go. That' a lot of walking for some eldery if they are just intersted in food. My mom was disappointed. ........... I love the new layout. Food prices are really good on Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine!!!

I agree with you Nancy. I have not been there yet but noticed that there is only one entrance and exit to the store. And us older folks always seek the shortest distance between two points. I'm sure that will be corrected in the near future.
