It appears that Target will be opening one of their small format stores in Uptown at the location of the former Cheapo music store on Lake Street.
The Minneapolis-based retailer is building its smallest-format store in one of the city’s hippest neighborhoods, which is a magnet for young professionals. The new store, to open in October 2017, will occupy the ground floor of a new office and apartment building on the site of the former Cheapo music store along Lake Street.
“We know guests in this neighborhood are driving to Target stores whether it’s the downtown Nicollet Mall store or the St. Louis Park store,” said Kristy Welker, a Target spokeswoman. “So this is about bringing a Target to the neighborhood for that added convenience.”
