Target Grand Opening – July, 2011

The next wave of Target store openings in July 2011 are:

Chandler South, AZ
San Luis Obispo, CA
Oxnard West, CA
Hilo, HI
Kenner, LA
Swansea, MA
Moore, OK
Hanover, PA
East Liberty, PA

I believe they will open in the first week of July so start driving by as the soft opening will start around June 29th.

So, while the open Target stores will look like this on May 16th … for the grand openings at these stores in July, the CARS section will once again look something like this if you want to revisit a full section.

(this is actually a TRU – pegs are closer together but you get the gist).

While this is now several years old now, you can still check out the Target growth from 1962 …

    Has anyone heard if there is going to be a job fair or if they are still hiring for the new store in Hanover PA?

    I’d like to see Target return to our area… they left 10 to 12 years ago… having to drive 50 to 70 miles to the nearest Target store is not a lot of fun.

    (MET: More stores opening in oct).

    Curious to see the growth of Walmart too. I hope Target gets into a price war with Walmart on the price of Cars 2 cars. With such a large volume of cars everywhere, they should be able to sell singles for $2 each and still make a profit.

      I won’t be surprised if at a dollar each they still make some profit… 🙂

      By the way I stopped at TRU yesterday and I was shocked to see CARS section full and I mean FULL of CARS 1. Quick estimate? At least $2,000 of inventory on the shelves… Lots of playsets, Sarge boot camp at $25 and several Semi at $8 and so on… And with only a small week away from C2 wave I am surprised there is no serious clearance for them. Well I guess Big Lots will be the big winner….
