The Target at Flatbush Junction, open now for only two and a half years, is getting remodeled. A company representative tells us that they aim to provide complete one-stop shopping:
The store is currently under construction for a June 2011 completion. The remodeled store will include an inviting open-market fresh food layout, stocked with a selection of fresh produce, fresh meat and baked goods. The new layout will also include renovations in several other areas throughout the store such as beauty, home, baby and shoes.
I’ve never been to a Target with fresh food, so I’m not sure what to expect. Every time I’ve been to this store, it’s been a comparatively pleasant experience–not so crowded, everything I need usually on the shelves, and short check-out lines. Will adding fresh food increase shoppers, making the store more crowded, shelves bare, long lines?
It will fill a void, anyhow, left by the market across Nostrand which will be gone soon to make room for a new Brooklyn College building. And at least one commenter says they’ll prefer Target to the Met a block away on Flatbush Ave. Do you think this is what the Junction needs?
