Target to open mini-store near University of Minnesota

Target Corp. is opening its smallest store ever, a 20,000-square-foot new concept called TargetExpress that will debut in Minneapolis’ Dinkytown neighborhood.

The TargetExpress concept takes that idea one step further — or smaller. CityTargets start at about 80,000 square feet; the Dinkytown store will be one-quarter of that size. It’ll stock a mix of basic clothing, food and pharmacy items, and some home decor and electronics.

The location is no accident; the store is within steps of the University of Minnesota, one of the nation’s largest colleges. It’ll open this summer, in time to capture the returning crowds of students.

The TargetExpress will be in the first floor of the Marshall, a 371-unit apartment building that was previously home to the University Technology Enterprise Center, an office building that housed several startups.
