Target's new Washington Heights location, the first in the neighborhood, is finally here.


The chain's familiar bullseye logo now hangs outside the large entrance at 602 W 181st Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, and the doors are open.


The official grand opening is set for this Sunday, August 15. To mark the occasion, the store will be giving away 1,000 reusable bags, according to a Target spokesperson.

The new uptown location, which replaced a Modell's, is one of the chain's growing number of small-format stores.


Elevators and escalators lead to a 25,000-square-foot upper level, featuring a mix of apparel and accessories, health and beauty products, home decor, and groceries specially curated for the neighborhood.


The store also features an order pickup area, and a CVS Pharmacy is coming soon.
