The wait is over, Tar­get shop­pers.

The dis­count chain’s new small-scale store near the Univer­sity of Texas opened its doors over the week­end.

The store, which was ini­tially set to make its de­but in July, is lo­cated in the Do­bie Twenty21 de­vel­op­ment at 2021 Guadalupe St.

The UT Tar­get has fewer items than a tra­di­tional Tar­get store be­cause of its re­duced square footage.

It sells an as­sort­ment of gro­ceries, dorm and apart­ment es­sen­tials, tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts and ac­ces­sories, men’s and women’s cloth­ing, and health and beauty items.

Park­ing for cus­tomers is avail­able in the garage next to the Do­bie Twenty21 build­ing.

The UT Tar­get store em­ploys about 60 work­ers and is the re­tailer’s 16th lo­ca­tion in the Austin area.
