The re-opening of the Target on Hampton is important for many City neighborhoods. The old Target was a place where you could be sure that you would meet most of your neighbors and many of your city co-workers whenever you went shopping.
One tradition in south City was Christmas shopping at the Target. Doting grandparents and anxious parents would race up the aisles looking for the must-have present.
Thanks to the speed with which this store was constructed, this tradition will continue uninterrupted during the upcoming Christmas season as well.
The fact that Target chose to build an urbanized “two-story Target” in the City the region’s first is a visible demonstration of the faith that Target has in the City’s market for retail.
I know that this store will be an even bigger success than Target expects.
