Target is planning to open a new “urban concept” store at 1865 Broadway on the corner of 61st Street, and the store has already begun hiring. But the original opening timeline — the company previously said it would open in the fall — may have been a little too ambitious.
When we asked about the opening date this week, a company spokesperson gave a wider date range:
“Target is excited to join the Upper West Side community, with plans to celebrate our Columbus Circle store grand opening in the coming months. We’re committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure every store is planned and completed in the best way possible for our guests and we’re currently finalizing all approvals and putting the finishing touches on the store. As we get closer to opening our doors and serving new guests on the Upper West Side, we’ll have more specific details to share – including how the shopping experience will be tailored to serve local guests and the grand opening date.”
We continue getting questions about the opening date from excited Upper West Siders, and will let you know as soon as we do. Sign up for our newsletter to stay on top of everything in the neighborhood.
