MIDWOOD/EAST FLATBUSH — Target announced today that they will be opening another of their small-format urban stores at the corner of Kings Highway and Foster Avenue in East Flatbush, where Kristal Auto Mall used to be in 2020.

“Our Kings Highway store will offer unique value to this iconic Brooklyn neighborhood by providing families and residents with a customized shopping experience for the community – made even easier with free onsite parking,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president, Properties, Target.

Offerings are expected to be similar to those of their Bensonhurst store, except this one will have parking:

  • A food and beverage selection for quick or fill-in trips, including fresh produce, grab-and-go options, snacks and meal solutions
  • Apparel and accessories for men and women
  • Baby and kids products, including basics, apparel, toys and sporting goods
  • Essentials and beauty products
  • A curated assortment of home décor, seasonal items and accessories
  • Portable technology products and entertainment accessories

This store will also offer pickup for your online Target orders, promising that more than 95% of such orders will be ready in less than an hour.

The Brooklyn Kings Highway store will employ approximately 100 team members, but you do not need to wait that long to work for Target.

They will be hiring 85 new employees for their Lower East Side store, which will open on August 19 at 400 Grand Street in Manhattan at events on June 11, 12, 14 and 18. Interested candidates should visit to apply in advance of the job fair date and to schedule an interview.

Target currently has stores at the Gateway Mall, Atlantic Terminal, Junction, Bensonhurst and Fulton Street.

  1. Traffic, already a horror on Kings Highway, will get much worse. On the other hand, shopping on Kings Highway is awful…very few decent stores so Target will be welcome

  2. I am thrilled to hear this news. There has a construction been going on in that area for a while. wasn’t clear what kind of building would be built. That’s a gift to the southern side of Brooklyn. We have never had nice trendy big stores in the area. As for traffic I agree. it is awful and Brooklyn borough authorities/President have to think of something to cut it. Why not allow Bus service to run over Ave P, for instance?!
