Target has developed a product line, including a collection of home goods, that directly supports Feed USA, a hunger relief charity operating in the United States. The company also has announced that consumers on the West Coast will have fresh opportunities to support Target’s charitable endeavors as it opens several new stores.
When consumers purchase Feed products, Target turns a portion of the sale over to the charity. The Feed collection includes apparel and home goods, some emblazoned with the Feed logo, some not. Home products range from scented candles and cookie cutter sets at $10 to a set of fabric storage bins at $30. The collection also includes a set of ceramic appetizer plates for $12, a flatware set for $20, two sizes of bakeware dish at $17 and $25, and a serving bowl and ca eramic mug set for $25, among other items.
Feed products rolled out to stores by June 30. In the same time frame, Target was announcing new store openings on the West Coast.
The retailer intends to open new stores in Fresno and Rocklin, CA, in March 2014, it stated. Target has located the new 140,000 square foot Fresno store on North Riverside Drive as part of the Marketplace at El Paseo shopping center. The new 136,000 square Rocklin store, on the northwest corner of Interstate Highway 80 and Sierra College Boulevard, will operate in the Rocklin Commons shopping center.
