Here I was bracing myself for having no place to shop when the Land Park Target on Broadway closes up in January for expansion, and yesterday I read that Target has called off its remodeling plans due to the depressed economy.
I have mixed feelings about it.
In a way, I'm relieved that the store will stay open, which means I won't have far to drive to pick up laundry soap, cases of diet coke or canned cat food. On the other hand, I was looking forward to the newly expanded store, with a second level and impressive architectural style, not to mention plenty of new inventory.
If it's any consolation, Target is not moving forward with its plans to build downtown, either. Its scaling back on its expansion plans and waiting for the economic climate to improve. So, it looks like we'll still get the new Target in Land Park; we just have to wait for it.
