The highly anticipated retail giant, Target, is scheduled to open their Goleta location for a soft opening on October 16.
Located in the former home of Kmart at 6865 Hollister Ave on the corner of Storke Road, the 117,000 square-foot store becomes the second Target store on the south coast. The first Target store on La Cumbre opened last month as a "small-format location" in the former Santa Barbara Galleria.
The Goleta location will offer a product assortment including apparel and accessories, kids’ and baby care products, toys and sporting goods, fresh grocery, home décor and furniture, health and beauty and other departments.
This store will also offer a CVS Pharmacy inside the store and Order Pickup, giving customers the option to buy online and pick up in-store.
It will employ more than 200 team members and the community hopes it will boost the economy of nearby small businesses including Cajun Kitchen, Saigon Noodle House, and Lilly's Taqueria.
A grand opening will take place on Sunday, October 20.
