New Target store near University of Texas campus delayed


A new Target adjacent to the University of Texas campus won’t be open in time for the start of the fall semester.

The small-scale store, which will be located in the Dobie Twenty21 residential and retail tower at 2021 Guadalupe St., had been slated to open in July, but that’s now been pushed back to October.

A typical Target is about three to four times larger than the one planned for The Drag. When it opens, the 22,000-square-foot store will have a curated assortment of products that will include groceries, apartment and dorm essentials, beauty items, men’s and women’s clothing and portable tech gear.

The store will also have a Target Mobile kiosk and will offer online order pickup.

Across the country, Target is on a building spree, planning smaller stores near a number of college campuses, including the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, University of Southern California, University of California-Irvine, University of Florida, Ohio State University and Michigan State University.
