Apple hits the target, or the Target, that is.
Discount retailer Target confirmed speculation Thursday that iPhone and iPad maker Apple will have displays in 25 of its stores.
Target, which is based in Minneapolis, unveiled its "the Shops at Target" concept at a presentation in New York. The strategy will include shops within its discount stores selling everything from dog treats to high-end home accessories.
Items from boutiques such as Miami's The Webster and San Francisco's The Candy Store will be priced from $1 to $160 and be sold in Target and on its website for six weeks starting in early May.
Architect and designer Michael Graves's tea kettles and other home goods helped Target pioneer the concept of higher-end partnerships at mass chains back in 1999.
