We shop at Target 2 to 3 times a month. We love the snack bar because we can get nachos, popcorn, diet lemonade and daughter can get a hot dog with no bun.

But today? There was NO snack bar! Just some signs saying they are remodeling and there is fresh produce coming.

Now I don't know if this means we are getting a proper grocery section or not. They do currently have a few aisles of shelf stable stuff and some refrigerated and frozen stuff. But I am pretty sure it is not the whole line that a Target with a proper grocery would sell. And it looks like they just started the remodel.

So I have a couple of questions.

If your Target has a grocery... Does it also have a snack bar? I would love for that to come back. We usually stop there after Costco. And after all that walking through Costco I am ready for a snack and a drink. Yes I know Costco has a snack bar but it's not as gluten-free friendly as the one at Target it or was.

And the other question... Do they sell any gluten-free products? I can currently get some things that are gluten-free, but do they have any specialty type things? Like gluten-free pasta or flour?

Thanks! This is a good thing. Now we can alternate our shopping between Target and Winco. Each one has a Costco nearby.

We have 3 " Super Target". The have a full grocery with produce. It has some gluten-free pasta, cereal, cookies, flours, frozen dinners, etc. They are mostly spread around with the other pasta, etc. We have a full snack bar, bakery, deli counter , pharmacy & Starbucks. It's a full grocery but unlike the regular large groceries, it is a bit limited. For example, it might have 2 brands of canned beans & the grocery has 5. The prices are better than the grocery. For example, Newmans Marinara sauce is about $2 at Target, $1.85 at Walmart but $4.50 at the grocery. Plus I use a Target Visa card & get 5% off my total.

We have one regular Target with limited groceries. It is smaller than the others. All the Walmarts here are expanding & remodeling to have a full or mostly full grocery.

My Target just did this remodeling thing to add an almost-full grocery store. They did keep the snack bar, just spruced it up a bit. The grocery section now sells just about everything in a regular grocery store, just not all the different varieties. I don't buy produce there because I didn't think it looked great, plus they sell a lot of it "per piece" rather than "per pound", which often makes it more expensive. On the other hand everything else is cheaper. Cereal especially. That's where I stock up on all our cereal.

Mine also has a ton of gluten free things -- oatmeal, flours, baking mixes, cookies, etc. I found gluten free graham crackers which I've never seen anywhere else. There's a kind of frozen waffle that's gluten free -- I forget the brand but it's buckwheat. Very yummy. And best of all I discovered a new bread! It's Glutino "Harvest Corn". But it's not crumbly corn bread like we'd eat with chili. This is regular bread, but just made from corn. It's a bit different texture than say Udi's, but I love it toasted in the morning. It has a nice crunch.

I'm really happy with the Target food section now!

Thanks! This sounds like a good change then!
