Since Somers Point Taco Bell opened, so many people haven’t been so excited about a new store coming to town.
I do a bit of humor there, but still, when Somers Point Kmart closed in late 2019, the future of this mall looked a bit bleak. After all, there aren’t many big box stores left that can easily fill 100,000 square feet of retail space.
And then Target stepped in and announced that they were coming to town.
Over the past few months the old Kmart has been gutted and completely overhauled to match the typical design of a Target store. (fun fact: Somers Point Kmart was the last new Kmart store ever to be built).
I had the chance to take a peek inside last night and the store already looks quite spectacular.
While many of us are familiar with the layout of Mays’ Landing Target inside and out, this store seems to be a little different. First, that store will be a little smaller than your typical target of about 30,000 square feet, according to The Press of Atlantic City. Second, the floor plan will be a bit different – for example, the grocery section of Mays Landing Target is far to the right as you enter. At the Somers Point store, it will be directly against the back wall.
Officially, there is no official opening date yet, but here is what the store looks like …
