Miami Beach’s First Target Opens

The retail giant has opened its first Miami-area “compact store” – the first in South Florida – at the BLVD at Lenox retail development at 1045 Fifth St. in Miami Beach, managed by Amicon Management.

And when we say compact, we mean compact. Shoppers used to the massive Targets in the suburbs may be stunned by the size of the new store. The South Beach target is almost 33,000 square feet, while the more common big-box Targets can range in size from 120,000 to 200,000 square feet.

But it’s stocked with the basics: health and beauty products, clothing, batteries, electronics, groceries, beer and wine and, because this is Miami Beach, souvenirs and other things you need to live that beach life. There’s also a Starbucks inside, because God knows the human body can only go so long without caffeine. It will also have a CVS pharmacy.
