The new Target store in the Shepherd Square Shopping Center, 2075 Westheimer Road, will open Oct. 25, a company spokesperson confirmed.

The store replaces a former Randalls grocery store footprint with 63,000 square feet and will be Target's fourth Inner Loop location.


Target Corp. secured the lease for the location in February, before the COVID-19 outbreak, and is one of dozens of new locations slated to open in 2020 along with 300 store renovations this year, according to a company news release.

This summer, the company also raised its starting wage to $15 an hour and gave frontline workers a bonus for working amid the pandemic. www.target.com
