Target, the nation’s second largest retailer behind Wal-Mart, has announced plans to open three new stores in New York City, with one of them in Brooklyn. The first of the new, smaller Target stores will open Oct. 5 in Tribeca at 255 Greenwich St. The second will open in late fall at 445 Gold St. in Downtown Brooklyn and the third will open sometime in 2018 at 500 East 14th St. in the East Village.

Target opened its first store in Roseville, Minnesota in 1962, and currently has 1795 stores across the country.

According to a report from ABC 7, a spokesperson for Target said the company is rolling out a new flexible format, which allows it to open stores in non-traditional and smaller-than-normal spaces.

The Tribeca store will have two levels and focus on clothing, accessories, home, beauty and baby items, as well as food, with a grab-and-go section that features sandwiches, salads, snacks and more. The store will also have a CVS Pharmacy.

The Brooklyn store will be part of the City Point Shopping Center. It will carry items from apparel, electronic, entertainment and toy departments. It will also have food, health and beauty items, a pharmacy and a Starbucks.

The East Village location will be similar to the Brooklyn store.

Target presently has stores in all five boroughs, including three large stores in Brooklyn. They are located at the Atlantic Terminal Mall at 139 Flatbush Ave., at 1598 Flatbush Ave. and at 519 Gateway Center Drive off the Belt Parkway.
