Cape Cod vacationers and residents alike have a variety of local shops and stores at their disposal to fulfill their seasonal needs, such as multiple beach item shops, grocery stores, coffee shops and of course the shopping mall. But wouldn’t it be better if all of these trips could be condensed into one?

Target, one of the nation’s most popular discount retailers, recently confirmed their plan to open a store at Cape Cod Mall in 2019. The chain has over 1,800 locations in the U.S., so it is no surprise that shoppers in the area are excited to finally welcome the big red bullseye and all it has to offer the community.

The store boasts a wide range of products covering everything from beach and seasonal items, to home and everyday essentials, and promises shoppers to always ‘Expect More. Pay Less’. “We make Target our guests’ preferred shopping destination by delivering outstanding value, continuous innovation and an exceptional guest experience,” the corporation states. They also announced that there will be a Starbucks located inside this store.

Target signed a lease for 80,000-square feet with the malls owner, Simon Property Group, who also plan to split and downsize the existing Sears space into two units and create 41 new parking spaces. A handful of other establishments including Five Guys, Chipotle and Visionworks will be relocated from their current sites, closer to the Barnes & Noble entrance, according to plans filed earlier this year with the Barnstable Zoning Board of Appeals. The Target Corporation plans to hire up to 100 employees at the new location, giving locals new job opportunities.

The confirmed arrival of this upscale discount retailer undoubtedly has locals buzzing. Wendy Northcross, chief executive officer at the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, told the Cape Cod Times she has been receiving an abundance of emails from eager and excited members of the community. With trendy products discount prices, Target is guaranteed to be the new shopping hotspot.

The Cape Cod Target location will be the 47th in the state of Massachusetts.
