Will Good & Gather Bring Target the Food Sales It Wants?

Three-fourths of Target shoppers in stores are adding at least one food item to their baskets, and with its new Good & Gather banner, Target aims to rapidly increase food sales.

With the aim of making “everyday eating extraordinary” for its shoppers, the retailer is rolling out a new assortment of elevated store-brand products, from soap to peanut butter.

The veteran marketer is promoted as Geoff White takes chief merchant role.

The retailer announces a plant-based extension to its Simple Truth brand—a signal that the trend has "gone mainstream."

The specialty grocer now carries a variety of the national retailer's free-from own products in all of its 39 stores.

Target’s forthcoming Good & Gather flagship food brand will begin with 650 items, which will hit stores on Sept. 15.

The Nature's Promise Kids extension arriving at all banners meets advanced free-from standards.

EDLP program lifts private label sales while margins remained under pressure, the retailer said.

The company’s RBS division has purchased a fresh processing facility from Taylor Farms; enhancements will significantly enhance production and capacity and will feature a culinary test lab.
