Target Stores


    Target Stores
Expect More. Pay Less.
Introduction
• One of the most recognized corporate symbols
  in the United States is that of the Target
  corporation, who have 1,351 stores in 47 of the
  50 states.
• The first Target store opened in Roseville,
  Minnesota, in 1962. Its trendy merchandise at
  affordable prices launched a new era in discount
  retailing. This “T-1” store was easy to shop,
  attractive and always clean. It served as the
  prototype for every Target store opened since
  then, and it changed how consumers think about
  discount shopping.
• The first Target Store was opened by the Dayton
  Company in 1962, in Roseville, a suburb of the
  twin cities Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.
• Target is a chain of discount department stores
  that are about 95,000 to 135,000 square feet
  (12,000 m²) and carry hardlines (quot;regularquot;
  products and goods), softlines (clothing), and a
  limited amount of groceries, mostly non-
  perishable.
Introduction
• 1960 - 1969

• Target stores are introduced, capturing
  customers’ loyalty by offering popular
  national brands at discounted prices. The
  main aisle allows easy navigation;
  efficient, clean displays make discount
  shopping easier and more pleasant than
  ever before.
Target Stores
• 1970 - 1979
•
• Already taking the lead in retail thinking, the newly
  established Target stores are organized according to
  consistent blueprints called “plan-o-grams,” ensuring that
  each of the 300 locations are clean, easy-to-shop and
  intuitively arranged. The stores contain photo processing,
  pharmacies and Food Avenue® restaurants, so guests
  can accomplish more in one shopping trip while enjoying
  the well-lit, appealing atmosphere and the friendly
  assistance of red-shirted team members. Electronic cash
  registers are used for the first time, and the Sunday
  circular begins to hit a few key markets.
1980-89
• Inside the stores, Target adds electronic
  scanning checkout, simplifying distribution,
  speeding guests’ exits and guaranteeing
  accurate pricing. At home, the weekly Target
  advertising circular becomes second only to the
  Sunday comics as America’s most-read
  newspaper insert, delivering customers
  information on the newest and best-priced items
  waiting in stores. Target also offers a holiday
  exclusive that becomes the must-have gift of the
  season—
•   1990 - 1999
•
•   Target stores expand in new directions with the introduction of the larger-sized Target Greatland®
    concept stores and the Target Guest Card® (now the REDcardSM). In 1995, SuperTarget®, which
    adds groceries to the product mix, gives consumers more reasons to make Target a regular
    destination. In 1996, the Lullaby Club® baby gift registry (now Target baby™) launches, allowing
    new parents to register for nursery supplies and essentials. At the end of the decade, GiftCards are
    introduced, while Target expands to the Internet with Target.com as its online presence.

•   2000 - PRESENT
•
•   In 2001, downtown Minneapolis, home to Target Headquarters, finally gets a Target store of its
    own: A two-story location on Nicollet Mall. Manhattan gets a special holiday treat as Target docks a
    floating holiday gift shop at Chelsea Piers in 2002. Target.com establishes itself as one of the most-
    visited retail websites in the world. In July 2005, Target turns New York’s Rockefeller Center into a
    vertical catwalk for a fashion show featuring collections from designers Mossimo, Liz Lange and
    Isaac Mizrahi. To kick off the 2006 2-Day Sale, Target challenges David Blaine—the world’s
    greatest endurance artist and magician— to attempt an escape from shackles while dangling four
    stories above Times Square . In 2008, Scott Dixon of Target Chip Genesis Racing wins the
    Indianapolis 500.
Mission:
• To make Target the preferred shopping
  destination for our guests by delivering
  outstanding value, continuous innovation
  and an exceptional guest experience, and
  consistently fulfilling our Expect More. Pay
  Less.® brand promise.
• Today, Target operates more than 1,600
  stores in 47 states, including more than
  200 SuperTarget® stores that include an
  upscale grocery shopping experience. In
  addition to the photo processing centers,
  pharmacies and Food Avenue®
  restaurants found in almost every Target,
  SuperTarget stores include in-store
  bakery, deli, meat and produce sections.
Positioning
• Target Corporation (Target) had 1,330
  retail stores in 47 states of the United
  States.
• Target's positioning was based on more
  than just pricing; it encompassed quality,
  style, and trend. This was the
  differentiation strategy that was
  consistently applied since the launch of
  the chain.
• Target positioned itself as an upscale discount
  chain. It differentiated itself from its competitors
  by offering trendy merchandise at affordable
  prices.
• Target used attractive marketing promotions to
  communicate this message to customers. By
  2002, the company became the second largest
  discount retailer in US.
• The differentiation followed by the company and
  its effective communication programs helped it
  to continuously increase its revenue and net
  income.
Issues Involved
• » How a new entrant can differentiate itself from existing
  players in the discount retailing industry.
  » The role of branding in successful positioning in the
  discount retailing industry.
  » How pricing is not the only way to compete successfully
  in the discount retailing industry.
  » How a company can continue to differentiate itself as it
  grows and maintain its unique image in the eyes of the
  customers.
  » The role of merchandizing in the success of a retail
  store.
Target Strategy
• To be able to offer the most up to date
  styles and trends to the customers Target
  focused on merchandising. Recognizing
  that just having the goods in the stores
  was not enough, Target also worked on
  conveying this image to the customer
  through its store layouts and displays, and
  through marketing and promotions.
Merchandising
• Target's positioning as an upscale discount
  chain was reflected in its merchandising strategy
  as well. Target managers felt that they needed
  to be constantly in tune with what the customers
  wanted and anticipate trends and demands.
• Warren Feldberg, Target's Executive vice
  president of merchandising, tried “looking at the
  world as our shopping basket and finding ways
  to bring that basket to the average customer”.
Differentiation Strategies

• From the very beginning, Dayton's
  strategy was to position Target as an
  upscale discount chain at which the prices
  would be just above the lowest prices. To
  achieve this upscale image, it offered
  trendy and stylish goods in an
  environment that was bright and attractive,
  unlike other discount stores of the time.
• Target Corporation competes directly
  against other discount retailers, mainly
  Wal-Mart and Kmart. Since its founding in
  1962, it has intended to differentiate its
  stores from its competitors by offering
  what it believes is more upscale, trend-
  forward merchandise at low cost, as
  opposed to the traditional concept of
  focusing on low-priced goods.
Revolutionizing Retail
• From department store roots to the award-
  winning online presence, Target works to
  deliver a great retail experience. They
  strive to exceed their guests’ expectations,
  adding this and trying that to provide the
  perfect blend of style, substance and oh-
  so-satisfying shopping.
Design for All
• Our Commitment to Design

• Great design is the essence of the Target brand.
  Target partners with world-class designers to
  offer amazing products at affordable prices.

  recognized that the appeal of smart, stylish, well-
  designed products and stores would set Target
  apart.
