Excerpt: Spurred by its 40 percent growth in its digital channel sales, and as part of its “roadmap to transform business,” as the company branded the plan, Target will focus on the following areas:

  • “Create a more guest-centric experience by tailoring its assortment and offering more locally relevant products, with demographics, climate, location and other guest-led factors driving merchandising decisions.”
  • “Store opening plans will increasingly focus on new, more flexible formats like TargetExpress and CityTarget, which cater to guests in rapidly-growing, dense urban areas.”
