They’ve asked designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo , Stephen Burrows and Chef Marcus Samuelsson to create beautiful things for their newest store- Target Harlem. It’s opening on July 25, and 5 percent of each product’s purchase price will be donated to a Harlem non-profit of the designer’s choice: el Museo del Barrio for Isabel and Ruben Toledo, The Fund for Public Schools in support of the library at The Young Women’s Leadership School of East Harlem for Stephen Burrows and The Fund for Public Schools in support of the library at Harlem PS 180: Hugo Newman for Marcus Samuelsson.
This is Target’s very first store in New York City. It’ll be located at the East River Plaza; East 116th Street (at FDR Drive). This is a huge deal for Manhattanites who travel to either New Jersey or the outer boroughs to get their Target fix.
The items will range from $3.99 for a Marcus Samuelsson napkin to $34.99 for a one-piece swimsuit by Isabel Toledo. The above pictured dress by Stephen Burrow is only $34.99, the Marcus Samuelsson kitchen towels are $4.99 and the Isabel and Ruben Toledo bikini is $17.99 for each piece! Now, lest you’re thinking that you’ll have to trek all the way to NYC to pick up these goodies, relax, you don’t have to make travel plans. The three limited collections will be available online August 1st.
Of course, if you want to come and visit, we’ll have the coffee ready!
