From small details, such as the new, plastic shopping carts to the expanded grocery section, the Valley View Target in Roanoke definitely has a different feel.
The store just completed a nearly $1 million remodel that moved some departments, put a layer of fresh paint on the outside and inside, updated the fitting rooms and snack bar, and perhaps most notably, added more coolers and freezers to accommodate fresh meats, dairy and produce.
Target has rolled out the expanded grocery section at 442 stores in the past year, according to the company’s financial statement for the quarter that ended April 28. The move seems to be paying off. Target reported that food was one of three best-selling items in the month of May, when it saw a 4.4 percent increase in same-store sales.
