Target to open stores in Ballard, U District, Bellevue

Target will open new Seattle-area stores in Ballard and the University District in 2019 and in Bellevue in 2020.

Target announced Tuesday it will launch three small-format stores in Seattle’s Ballard and University District neighborhoods and in Bellevue.

The small-format stores, which range from 21,000 to 49,000 square feet at these three locations, aim to reach new shoppers in dense urban and suburban areas where a traditional Target store wouldn’t fit.
