Put A Bow On It

The new Target at Hampton Village opened yesterday. Employees at the store could hardly believe the anticipation from neighborhood residents about the opening of the new store.

Word was that the old Target was the highest dollar Target in the entire St. Louis area. With their new offer, they should expect to see even higher sales volume.

Has there ever been such a love affair between a neighborhood and a chain store?

I was there yesterday as well, and you're right, never have I seen so many people so excited to have a Target open's good to have it back, it's a great store.

The love affair is simple-- the American quest for a range of cheap products with appealing design all under roof. But with the Hampton location, you stay close to home and help support City tax coffers.
