The "city" Target going in on the top floor of the Beverly Connection has a tentative opening date: March 2013. According to the LA Times, Target has two other CityTargets in the works for Los Angeles—the first, in Westwood near UCLA, will open in just two months; a Downtown store will follow in October.
What is this thing called a CityTarget? Basically, its the Target you know
and love, made smaller. The footprint for CityTargets ranges from "85,000 to 100,000 square feet; in comparison, the average Target is 130,000 square feet and the average Super Target is 175,000 square feet." The Beverly Connection CityTarget will weigh in at 99,000 square feet.
Other differences: Instead of offering bulk sizes of things like tp, CityTargets will stock smaller packages tailored for the smaller dwellings of urban folk.
