Target wants to renovate a second Jacksonville retail store for its “reimagined” format that the Minneapolis-based chain calls its most ambitious store redesign to date.

The Daily Record reports the store at 10490 San Jose Blvd. in the Courtyard Shopping Center is in city review for a $1.1 million interior remodeling that would involve 70,000 square feet of the 138,286-square-foot store.

No contractor is listed. Cuhaci & Peterson Architects Engineers Planners of Orlando is the architect.

The redesigned stores, which Target calls its next-generation design, feature new elements and more technology and digital experiences. 

A spokeswoman said in January the remodels are customized to meet the needs of local customers.

Target, which operates more than 1,800 stores, said that by the end of 2019 more than a third of its stores will be remodeled as part of a more than $7 billion investment.

Target plans to update and renovate more than 1,000 stores by 2020. A spokeswoman said in January that the company remodeled 110 locations in 2017 and plans to renovate more than 325 stores this year.

The San Jose store was built in 2000.

Target also intends to renovate the Southside Square store at 9041 Southside Blvd. at a construction cost of $1.1 million, according to a pending city building permit. 

That store was built in 1991 and was one of the first to open in Jacksonville, along with the Regency area store at 444 Monument Road.

The eight Target stores in Duval County were built from 1991 to 2007.

In other supermarket news, the Southside Blvd. Aldi is holding a hiring event. You can read more about that at The Daily Record.
