Please note that my Target is not a Super Target, it is just regular, old Target, but it's brand new. So those of you from the other side of town really needn't bother to come over here. You've got your own! :)
Isn't it pretty?I've been dreaming about it for a couple of years now and finally, this week, a new Target store opened up on my side of town, just a mile or so away from my house. My side of town has never had a whole lot (restaurants, shopping, etc), but a couple of years ago plans went into the works for a new shopping center just a mile or so from my house. It took forever...even after many of the other stores opened up last year, Target still hadn't opened. We received a mailer a couple of weeks ago saying that the store would open in March. This morning my friend and coworker Cori told me that it had its soft opening on Tuesday and is now open! Yay!
Today, after work and happy hour, I stopped by the new Target on my way home. I am just giddy with excitement. It will no longer take me one-half hour to get to Target anymore (even though the Target across town is only about 6 miles away, because of traffic and 40 million traffic lights it takes forever to get there). Cori told me that it was so nice, not very crowded, and the baskets moved "like heaven." When I arrived this evening, the parking lot was pretty crowded - obviously others had also been filled in on the new opening, but the store was so clean, the staff was very friendly, and the basket did move very smoothly.
I'm so happy that I can now shop at one of my favorite stores and I don't have to be gone half the day to do so! Yay!
