Disney has moved to expand its physical store footprint further by teaming up with US retailer Target to offer a ‘shop-in-shop’ store experience within 25 outlets.

Launching on October 4, the experiential retail and merchandising tie-up will be augmented by a Disney digital experience with a further 40 Target stores set to join the programme by October 2020.

Target chairman and chief executive Brian Cornell commented: "With a shared focus on families and unwavering commitment to our guests, we are excited to evolve our relationship with Disney to bring ease, convenience and joy to more families and fans with unique and differentiated retail experiences that can only be created through our two companies.
