NO TARGET? ARGH!

November 17, 2008

I wrote a post several months ago about the new Target that was going to replace the old target-storeTarget at the corner of Riverside Blvd and Broadway.  It is where the old Edmunds Field use to be.  Gemco replaced Edmunds Field and Target moved in where Gemco once was.  The building is old and does not fit the Target mold.

Even so, Target has decided to suspend their plans to replace this old building.  In addition, they were going to expand into the downtown mall.  This plan has been put on hold as well.  All very unfortunate, but probably a sign of the times. I guess an old Targe that is healthy is better than a new Target that can’t sustain the cost of the building. 

So sad!
