Target Snags Third Location at Soon-to-be-Former Whole Foods Store
Target has signed on to a third Center City location for its new line of urban scale stores.
Natalie Kostelni of the Philadelphia Business Journal reported earlier today that the Minneapolis-based retailer will take over the 30,000-square-foot Whole Foods store at 20th and Callowhill after it moves to nearby Rodin Square in 2016.
“I can confirm that a lease has been signed for 2001 Pennsylvania Ave., Philadelphia,” Kristy Welker, of Target Communications, wrote in an email to Property.
Target officially announced this year that they would open new smaller-format stores inside two new developments: a 19,ooo-square-foot location at 12th and Chestnut, and a 21,000-square-foot store on the corner of 19th and Chestnut.
“The other two Target flexible format stores that Target has announced will be opening in July 2016,” Welker confirmed.
