A Target is set to open a store on the Las Vegas Strip in 2020.

The Las Vegas Showcase will be a "small format" store with 20,000 square feet of space. It will be located just north of the MGM Grand hotel-casino on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The new store will feature essentials and beauty products, a curated assortment of tourist merchandise, apparel and accessories for men and women and a grocery section.

The new Target will also offer order pickup, which gives customers the ability to buy online and pick up in store within an hour.

The Budin Group Financial Advisor Jason Baucom says this type of growth in the valley can be a boon for locals.

"It creates an opportunity for those people to work and create income for their families," he comments.

The Las Vegas Showcase store will hire approximately 150 employees.
