Target announced today it will move into the building on Washington Street that Staples is leaving and turn it into one of its urban "small-format" stores.
The new store is slated to open in March, 2018 and will feature "a quick-trip shopping experience with a curated assortment mix" that sounds like a smushup of a CVS and small home-goods, electronics and toy stores.
The store will, in fact, include a CVS pharmacy.
After the Ashmont store closed, then Mayor Tom Menino's blocked a full sized CVS to protect the nearby Sullivan's.
Target says people will be able to order online, then pick up at the store.
Roslindale Village Main Street has organized a community meeting on the proposal, 7 p.m. on May 18th at the Roslindale Community Center.
