Local Target undergoing $1.1 million remodel

The $1.1 million renovations currently underway at the Beavercreek Target are expected to be completed the last week of October.

Work on the 122,000-square-foot Fairfield Road store is happening during nightime hours when the store is closed and won’t affect the store during the day, said one of the store’s executive team leads Andrew Holtz.

Target plans to nearly triple to number of remodels in 2018, reaching 1,000 total store remodels by 2020.

“Target’s top priority is delivering a shopping experience our guests will love, and we’re excited to make so many of our hometown stores even easier to shop. At the same time, we’re adding new features that put the spotlight on the great assortment our guests can find at Target,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president of Target properties in a March release.

The retail giant will target each renovation to fit the neighborhood it’s in, so no two stores will look alike when complete, according to the release.

The Target on Feedwire Road in Sugarcreek Twp. has also recently undergone renovations. There are six Target stores in the Dayton area.

Target is a retailer doing well despite other stores struggling to keep up as Amazon changes the retail landscape. The company saw a 4.9 percent increase in same-store sales in quarter two this year and 6.4 percent growth in store traffic.

Other companies have struggles to attract shoppers into physical stores as online shopping picks up.
