I've never been to a Target before. Will it make things better or make things worse? It'll make things better for the city and for Columbia Heights property owners. Not so much for tenants. But, what about me? A young adult living in AU Park. Does having groceries and televisions under one Metro-accessible roof actually that much more convenient? Is Target any better or cheaper than making separate visits to Best Buy and Safeway?
The most comparable store to Target is probably Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, that comparison is moot since I've never been inside of a Wal-Mart either.
So, should I be excited, cautiously optimistic, or angry that a mega-store is going to have so much influence on a single neighborhood? What's Target like?
