New warehouse along Schuylkill River in Upper Merion to become Target sortation center has reviewed a document that shows that Target is planning to open a sortation center at a new warehouse at 900 River Road in Conshohocken (Upper Merion). Note that this is on the West Conshohocken side of the river adjacent to the former Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News printing plant.

This information lines up with a blog post on Target’s website that mentions a “Philadelphia area” sortation center.

Our secret to fast, affordable delivery? Our stores. On top of providing the easy, inspiring, only-at-Target shopping experience our guests love, they also fulfill more than 95% of Target’s online orders. And as we look to strengthen our delivery capabilities for the future, we’re expanding our first-of-its-kind sortation center concept to help our stores do even more, faster, for our guests. Starting this fall, we’ll open four new sortation centers in major markets across the country — including sites in Houston, Dallas, the Philadelphia area and Lawrenceville, Georgia, all built after the pilot sortation center we opened in Minneapolis in 2020.

The property was previously Johnson Matthey – Riverside Facility, which was a chemical plant. The new warehouse that is under construction is going to be a 331,428-square-foot warehouse.

The document didn’t provide any details on when the new facility would open.
