Our first glimpse at the future of Target stores is here. This past week, several local news outlets released images and details about the updated store in Richmond, Texas. Calling it the first “fully reimagined store,” the company expects the new space to make shopping more attractive and efficient for its customers.

The Richmond Grand Parkway Southwest, Texas, Target, located 35 miles southwest of Houston, includes product presentations for brand-exclusive products in the apparel and accessories, home, jewelry, and beauty departments. The retailer experimented with special merchandise displays to promote the recent launch of Chip and Joanna Gaines’s new home line, Hearth & Hand with Magnolia— and you can expect these types of displays to become the norm in these updated Target stores.

On Tuesday, Community Impact Newspaper shared four images of the “next-generation” store on its Twitter account.

In an announcement on its corporate site, Target also revealed that the 124,000-square-foot Richmond store includes a grocery department, wine and beer shop (complete with a “cheers” marquee), CVS Pharmacy, and Starbucks.

There are now two entrances to the store, with one for those looking to grab and go, and another for customers who want a longer, more thorough experience, according to ABC.

And for those who don’t want to leave their car, Target is offering a service where employees will bring online orders to you. With parking spaces specifically for on-the-go customers, this is ideal for a quick pickup.

These elevations in the Target experience are part of the brand’s new mission to remodel over 1,000 stores by 2020.
