IOWA CITY, Iowa (KWWL) – Iowa City will soon be getting a small-format Target Retail store, right in the middle of its downtown.
A Target spokesperson confirmed to KWWL the 24,000-square foot store will be going in at 115 East Washington Street.
City officials said they’ve been trying to fill the vacant storefront for a while, and they’re excited for the addition.
“Having a mix of someone who is extremely well known would be a good addition to Iowa City. The walkability and the distance from campus,” Ashley Monroe, Assistant City Manager said.
The city council also voted recently to change metered parking in front of the new store, to a loading zone.
An opening date has not been set yet, but the expectation is around next summer.
