Love their stores, and the quality. Sure, they're more expensive, but i think it's worth every penny. They have nice, clean stores, and i enjoy the shopping experience.

Here's the second design. It came out in 98. This is one of the Albany, NY stores(and the first Target to come into Albany), at the old Northway Mall site.

Target doesn't try the warehouse look that many other stores are going with these days. They try and make their stores different than everyone else. I admire that.

I don't know about that store now, my guess is that it probably moved away beause the stores were smaller in that time...   Maybe it was expanded?  Today's Target would'nt fit in these 60's stores.  As for the logo, it is probably behind all that snow !

Very cool pic! I have been searching for months looking for early Target pics finding nothing. That looks like quite a large store compared to other 60's stores.

The town of Newington cut down over an Acre of trees and old buildings to build a brand new Target store in 2003. But, it's a real nice store. The store is so clean compared to Wal-Mart across the street. Also, I'm looking to buy DVDs online, and target.com has them for less than walmart.com.

I've only been in Target once in my life, it was in Charelston, WV. It was a nice store, good atmosphere, and kept neat. I liked the layout and all, but the prices were a little on the high side. I would like to have a Target in my area thought. Cheesy

As a few have allready mentioned above, I would be more than happy to pay a bit more to go to Target than to save money and shop at Wal-Mart....ALWAYS!!  :roll:

How ironic Target is what delt the final blow to Caldor after moving into this area

WELL WALMART MADE IT HARD FOR CALDOR TO SURVIVE TOO!

so its not all of Target's fault

I call Target the "Caldor copycat" because it reminds me of what Caldor used to be, unique yet simple

plus if you crop the Target logo at 2.3 in powerpoint and put it  on the angle like the Caldor rainbow was you'll see some sort of resemblance!:o:o:o:o:o:o:holysh:

my favorite store



TARGET IS MY FAVORITE STORE. MY CLOSEST TARGET IS IN CONCORD NH. TARGET FIRST CAME TO NEW ENGLAND IN July 1999, In NH it first opened in Salem NH, and COncord and the one in the Pheasant LAne MAll opened in OCtober 1999, and the one in Hooksett opened in MArch 2003, and the one in NAshua on Amherst st opened in July 2003, and the one in Bedford NH is opening in OCtober 2005. Other potential Targets are in KEene and Greenland NH. The one in South Portland MAine opened in OCtober 2001, I have been to it. I heard the one in Bangor opened in MArch 2004, but I have never been to that Target. I heard they will put ones in Biddeford and Augusta and Topsham.

TARGET IS MY FAV STORE, and tHEY ARE IN EXPANSION MODe. BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO TARGET IN VERMONT.

TARGET IS EVEN EXPANDING AROUND BOSTON BIG TIME. LIKE I HEARD THEY MAY build on Washington st if MAcy's moves into Filene's or if that happens. I heard they replaced the Kmart in South bay center (I WENT TO THAT Kmarts closing sale 2 years ago and my dad and I where the only white people in that store). I heard they built one in REvere, I have been to the targets around Boston in Saugus, Everett (TARGET GREATLAND), (SAUGUS AND EVERETT ARE NEAR REVERE), WAtertown (That was a small one), SAlem (A small store), SOmerville (A small store), Woburn (TARGET GRETLAND), DAnvers (TARget GREATLAND).

I First went to a Target in early 1993, when my parents and I went on vacation to ORlando florida for february vacation, and I went to a TArget in Kissimmee.

I JUST LOVE TARGET. HAS THERE BEEN TALKS ABOUT ONE IN VERMONT YET??? I would bet if they try open there they would open in Burlington.

I have been to these target: NH: NAshua, NAshua, COncord, HOoksett, Salem; MA: DAnvers, SAugus, EVerett, Salem, Somerville, Watertown, Westboro, Worcester, MArlboro, HAdley, Holyoke, TAunton, Kingston; ME: South Portland; NY: SAratoga Springs; FL: Kissimee, NM (NEw mexico): 2 in alebequerque (I went to them in FEbruary 1995 when I vistied my now deseaced grandmother's friends).

This summer when I travel I will go to the ones in RI: WArwick, Smithfield; MA: NOrth attleboro, Plainville, Boston (DORchester), REvere, Leominster (It opens in July); CT: Enfield; NH: Bedford.

In ma I heard they are trying to put target in the berkshrie mall in LAnesboro where Ames was (GOOD IDEA: I WENT TO PITTSFIELD LAST YEAR AND WAL-mart was the only store there, I saw a building with PEtco, HOme goods and TJ MAXX and it looked like it was a Kmart, a vacant Bradlees) Abbington, North Dartmouth and one DAy I plan to visit the one in SEekonk MA.
