From a press release:

“Target is announcing plans to open two small-format stores in the D.C. area, one located in Cleveland Park and the other on New York Ave. in Ivy City’s Hecht District. Projected to open in Spring 2019 and Fall 2020, respectively, these two locations will be Target’s sixth and seventh small-format stores in the D.C. metro area, joining existing locations in College Park (July 2015), Rosslyn (October 2015) and Bethesda (April 2016) as well as future stores at Falls Church Tinner Hill (March 2018) and Ballston, Va. (2021).

Target’s strategic priorities include reaching new guests by expanding small-format stores in dense suburban neighborhoods, urban areas and near college campuses. Target’s small-format store assortments are tailored to meet the needs of local guests. The retailer is on track to operate 130 small-format stores by the end of 2019, serving new guests in communities and neighborhoods where a traditional-sized Target store may not fit. Guests who shop Target’s existing small-format stores open around the country have responded well to having these customized quick-trip shopping experiences available in their neighborhoods.

“Target is expanding our offerings for the residents of our nation’s capital by bringing new stores to Cleveland Park and New York Ave. Located along well-known corridors, these two stores offer D.C. guests a convenient shopping trip for groceries, household items, and a unique product assortment that only Target can provide,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president, Properties, Target.

The Cleveland Park store, at approximately 24,700 sq. ft., is located at the corner of Connecticut Avenue and Porter Street in Sam’s Park and Shop. Target has signed a lease with Federal Realty Investment Trust. The store product assortment will include:

Men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, including Target-exclusive brands
