The new Ballston Target is now open at 740 N. Glebe Road, with a grand opening celebration planned this Sunday.
Don’t go in expecting the full department store experience, though. Target says the new location is a smaller-format store that will focus on offering essentials. The move is part of sizing Targets to fit in increasingly dense urban areas where a traditional store might not fit.
“This location will be Target’s 10th small-format location and 49th total store in the greater D.C. area, which altogether employ more than 8,500 team members,” the company said.
According to Target, the new store will include:
- Apparel and accessories
- Home decor
- Health, beauty and personal care items
- Groceries and fresh produce
- An “adult beverage” assortment
- A CVS pharmacy
The location will also offer a pick-up where customers can order items and pick them up at the store.
Target said in the press release that employees and guests, except for small children or those with medical conditions, will be required to wear masks.
The store will be open from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
