Welcome Target to Cleveland Park!
The new small-format store will celebrate its Grand Opening at Sam’s Park & Shop at 3505 Connecticut Avenue, NW, on Sunday, April 7 during its regular Sunday hours of 8am til 10 pm. The first 100 customers will receive Target shopping bags.
The store will have a soft opening starting April 3 as the store finishes its preparations and stocking. “We may have a few items still coming on on to the shelves during those soft opening days,” said Store Manager Jemima Cange, “but we will be fully stocked for the Grand Opening.”
The store is the 45th Target in the greater DC area and the 94th small-format store nationwide. The small-format stores operate in urban areas, dense suburban neighborhoods, and near college campuses where a full-size Target may not fit. The Cleveland Park store aims to provide local customers a curated selection of fresh and dried groceries–including grab-and-go items–produce, apartment and home essentials, clothing for women and men, kids basics, small appliances, cosmetics, and more.
Pet supplies and food will also be offered, which may be appreciated by the pet owners who frequented the Petco that used to occupy the space in the shopping center.
“Target’s small-format stores are positioned to cater our product offerings to the community,” Cange said, and she encouraged customers–or guests, as Target refers to them–to speak to the manager on duty or complete a guest comment card with any suggestions. “If you’re looking for something specific and can’t find it, please let us know,” she encouraged.
Parking validation in the Park & Shop for Target customers will be one hour. Store hours will be 7am – 10pm Monday through Friday, Saturday 8am – 11pm, and Sunday 8am – 10pm.
