NEW YORK, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Target Corp,
known to many U.S. shoppers as the place to go for trendy,
low-priced merchandise, will soon have shops within its discount
stores selling everything from dog treats to high-end home
Target also confirmed during a presentation on Thursday that
it will have 25 stores featuring special displays of Apple Inc
merchandise, a move that had been speculated about last
Target, which is based in Minneapolis, unveiled its "the
Shops at Target" concept in New York. Items from boutiques such
as Miami's The Webster and San Francisco's The Candy Store will
be priced from $1 to $160 and be sold in Target and on its web
site for six weeks starting in early May.
Architect and designer Michael Graves's tea kettles and
other home goods helped Target pioneer the concept of higher-end
partnerships at mass chains back in 1999.
