Bergen Town Center - Construction Progress - 'TARGET' STORE SIGN WENT UP TODAY !

Real Estate Agent with Bergen County, NJ - RE/MAX Real Estate Limited

For those here in Bergen County following the construction progress of the highly anticipated "Bergen Town Center" - there was a major breakthrough today ....


... the TARGET SIGN WENT UP !!!!!!!!


           Bergen Town Center Gets Target


Now aside from the realization that we are getting this fabulous store right in our neighborhood, this new sign hanging today is significant because Paramus and Maywood residents and visitors can now get excited that we are nearing completion of this 3 year project to upgrade the former "Bergen Mall", to a premier, modern shopping center which will be home to Target, Century 21 (the department store!), Whole Foods, Gap/Gap Kids Outlet, New York & Company, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, Marshalls, Filenes, Zales and The Children's Place.

.... oh and let's not forget Chuck E Cheese's !!!!!

Chuck E Cheeses

                                                   Good TImes at Chuck E Cheese


Sure we already have 3 other huge Malls in Bergen County already, but they're ADDING A NEW TARGET TO THE AREA !!!!!


                                                 We love Target round here !!!

I can go into this red wonderland and pickup a new game for Wii, some cereal (on sale 2 for $5 this week ;o), a few things for my son from the 'Dollar Spot', some seasonal trinkets, a new snow shovel, all in one place, and still race through the '10 Items or less' checkout ! ... that Sunday flyer cant arrive quick enough :o)


So tonight I can rest peacefully with a smile, knowing that in the near future I can walk from my house to my second favorite home away from home (second to Home Depot) ...


... and that heavenly place just put up their little red bullseye today ! ...


....aahhh ! ....

G'nite everyone ....sleep tight ...

Sheldon ~ I like Target too, although we use the French pronunciation. ; )  I like it for the same reasons; I can go in and get new bath towels, furniture polish and, oh yeah, we need Excedrins too.

Sheldon:  I'd rather go into Target than Wal-Mart any day of the week. The stores are cleaner, the employees are friendlier and the prices are just as good.

Oh My goodness Sheldon !! HOORAY for you and your town!! You know, Target is a great company to have in your community.  They donate 5% of their income to community programs, corporately they donate over $3,000,000. ( that's MILLION) every week!! And...just think how happy you will be shopping there knowing that!! :-) Loved the post- thanks, Sheldon!

I love Target Sheldon! Even though we do not have one here in Manhattan, Morgan and I often go back to Queens by my mother's house so we can visit Tar-Get... and stock some great Market Pantrys items! "0)

Retail is under pressure. More stores are probably a mistake. Certain venues my work, like a Targets.

However, we have the highest vacancy rate for retail in our area for a long time. Large boxes however need the locations. They are not always available.

Sheldon, I can't help but think how happy you would be around here.  We have Target's all around--you might even say we're "over-Targeted." :)

Hey Sheldon - I remember when Titusville FL opened our Target a year or so ago...there were line-ups to get in.  We were disappointed, however, that it was not a SuperTarget....oh well....and I see you quit messing with your mug :-)

Sheldon you're funny.  I have friends who adore Tar -shay.  I prefer Wally's world myself and love the supercenter they have around here.  I do remember living in NYC and feeling as if we were overlooked by these giant retailers.  I guess the city price per SF was just too much for these huge box giants.

Eileen ! - I love Target's home brand ! Come over the GW for the grand opening of this new one !

Hi Richard - Tough time for retailers indeed - I think the Bergen Town Center was in danger of actually being demo'd entirely, but somehow not only is it staying, but it's being stocked with some great stores --- including T.A.R.G.E.T. !!! :o)

Carole ! - - I dont know if it's possible to be overTargeted !!! lol !!!!

Gail ! - Now I may draw the line at standing in line for the opening though ! ... and yes, the fun and games for my pic has stopped !!!

Hi Susan ! -- my little monster loves Chuck E Cheese ! ... and it's 4 blocks from my home !

Hello Lourdes ! - Cant wait for Whole Foods too ! It's gonna be a beautiful day in the neighborhood !

Maggie :o) -- Wally's World ??? I thought that was closed ? Didnt the Moose at the front tell you ?!?!?!?  (movie quote ! - anyone ?! lol)

Let's not forget that they are also adding a Nike outlet store (have a tween daughter who is so excited about this) and a Bobby's Burger Palace from chef Bobby Flay...that's interesting!  I can't wait!  I've lived in Maywood my whole life and have fond memories of the "Bergen Mall", but it needed a change and I hope it's worth the wait....I'll be standing in line on opening day at Target!  Whoo Hoo!!!!!!
