After years of waiting, shoppers finally welcomed Target to the Ceasar’s Bay Shopping Center this week.
Although the grand opening was Sunday, March 14, the store opened a few days earlier.
Target’s new Bay Parkway location, which is about 88,000 square feet, is considered a small-format store. It takes over the spot previously occupied by Toys ‘R’ Us.
The store provides the same diverse products people would expect from a Target and includes a grocery area, a CVS Pharmacy and a Starbucks.
Target announced it would join the shopping center nearly two years ago and the company says it has created 200 jobs.
Target now has 22 small-format locations and 86 total stores in the greater New York City area.
The shopping center is also home to Best Buy, Kohl’s and Olive Garden.
