Two of your favorite things are merging in one place! Mini versions of the The Disney Store will arrive at select Targets in the U.S. in October.
If you live in Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia or Washington, you’re in luck! The new Disney stores will come to 25 Targets in these states soon.
Target also says an additional 40 of its stores will have a mini Disney Store by October 2020. Also, a Target will be opening near Walt Disney World’s Orlando resort in 2021.
Here’s a sneak peek of what the on-average 750-square-foot “shop-in-shop” will look like.
The 450 items for sale will include toys, games, clothing, home decor, seasonal products and accessories — including almost 100 items that have only been available only at Disney retail locations to date.
So Target shoppers can get even more classic Disney characters, such as Disney Princesses, “Star Wars,” and Marvel and Disney Junior favorites, plus the Disney Animators’ Collection.
If you can’t make it to a store, there’s a whole new Target Disney Store online landing page you can browse.
“We know there’s a very strong overlap between both Disney fans and Target shoppers so we’re looking forward to reaching Disney fans when and where they want to shop,” Target CEO Brian Cornell told reporters in a conference call on Aug. 25, according to USA Today. “It’s an opportunity for us to bring our brands together and delight our guests for years to come.”
The store launches are also timed with the release of two big new Disney movies, so they will naturally be accompanied by matching merchandise: “Frozen 2” debuts Nov. 22 and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” comes out on Dec. 20.
