Target to Offer Some Items Starting at Less Than a Dollar Under New Private-Label Brand

Target said on Thursday it will offer some everyday essentials at prices starting less than a dollar as part of the retailer’s new private-label brand.

The move comes at a time when value-conscious customers are increasingly opting for cheaper private-label brands as cost-of-living pressures strain household budgets.

Prices of products such as apparel, cosmetics and electronic items that are housed under the private-label brand, known as dealworthy, will start from less than $1, with most under $10, Target said, adding that the goods will arrive in stores and on this month.

“We know that value is top of mind for consumers and dealworthy … will not only appeal to our current guests but position us to attract even more new shoppers to Target,” Rick Gomez, Target’s executive vice president, said.

A Labor Department report on Wednesday showed US consumer prices rose more than expected in January amid a surge in the cost of rental housing.

Rival retailers such as Walmart and ecommerce giant also have low-price brands targeting customers looking for bargains on food and household items.
