MINNEAPOLIS, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Target Clinic® plans to open eight new locations this year to provide guests more access to quality, convenient and affordable health care services.

"Guests who already shop Target for their prescriptions, healthy foods and workout apparel will also get the basic health services they need in a quality, convenient setting," Dr. Riff added.
