BREAKING: Minnesota Target Store Is Closing For Good
Some upsetting news was announced today about a Target store in Minnesota.
According to KSTP.com, the Target store located at 1300 W. Lake Street in Minneapolis will be closing on May 13th, 2023. This store opened in 2017 and occupies 22,000 square feet, which is a smaller size than a typical full-size Target store. The store currently employs 45 people and thankfully all will be offered other opportunities at other Target stores in the area.

South Target Store in Rochester Invaded By Gigantic Tents
If you utilize the shopping on the south side of Rochester, Minnesota, you may have noticed recently that several huge tents popped up in the back of the parking lot. Along with those tents are multiple storage containers. I tried counting them but there are just too many and honestly, I was sidetracked by the cars driving inside the caution tape and then breaking it as they just drove through it.
I reached out to Target Corporation and the store near Fleet Farm is getting ready for a huge remodel. In case you missed it, you can find more info here.
