Target will open store near UT next year


Target confirmed Thursday that it will open a store adjacent to the University of Texas campus next year.

The 22,000-square-foot store will be located at West 21st and Guadalupe streets, in the Dobie Twenty21 development. It’s set to make its debut in July 2017.

Formerly known as Dobie Mall, the center – once home to an arthouse movie theater – has been undergoing a number of renovations.

The UT Target store will be much smaller than most of the retailer’s locations in the Austin area. The company said it will sell an assortment of groceries, dorm and apartment essentials, technology products and accessories, clothing, and health and beauty items.

“Growth on college campuses and in urban markets is a priority for Target,” Target senior vice president Mark Schindele said in a written statement. “We’re able to serve more guests by adding flexible-format stores near top universities across the country, including the quick-trip shopping experience we’ll bring to the University of Texas campus. We’re thrilled to open our first flexible-format store in Austin and to join the Longhorn community.”
