If you always fall victim to the chips, candy, and soda on display by the cash register, you’ll be thrilled to learn that Target is moving in a more healthy direction. Next month, there will be 30 stores that swap out junk food offerings in the checkout line with lighter options like Kind Bars and Target’s own Simply Balanced brand of healthy snacks. While Target won’t be totally eliminating unhealthy items from the checkout line ¡ª?just cutting down on its volume ¡ª?it’s hoping that having healthier picks handy will make the smart snacking on the go easier for shoppers.
This is just one of the new initiatives Target recently rolled out to support the health and wellness of its customers and employees. In addition to heavily discounting its C9 clothing and offering healthier cafeteria options to workers, Target will also be outfitting all 365,000 of its employees with a Fitbit ¡ª talk about work perks!
