Target is one of the most popular discount retailers in the United States. They're well-known for their iconic logo, as well as for having a big range of products.
All about TARGET
Target was originally a department store that today has become a major discount retailer. They're well known for their wide selection of products, including their own store brand. Up & Up is Target’s own brand that claims the same quality as some of the national leading brands in beauty, health care, home furnishings, and personal products, but at an average of 30% price reduction.
Another way shoppers at the store get great deals is by using Target promo codes at checkout, or by buying certain products that offer shoppers the chance to get money back on their next purchase at Target. Signing up for Target’s Redcard can really come in handy if you are a frequent patron (or plan on being one!). Even without the card, there is always a sale going on, so keep an eye out!
The origins of TARGET
Target was originally founded in 1902 as Goodfellow Dry Goods. It became Target in 1962, then the Target Corporation in 2000. Today, it has nearly 1,800 locations. Minnesota was the first state to host a Target in 1972. The retail store quickly found success and expanded across the U.S. Currently, Target has over 2,000 locations. There's almost certainly one near you!
Target is a close second to Walmart as being the largest discount retailer store in America. Don't forget to check out the Target weekly ad to get the very best deals!
Target holds a series of talks on innovation called “Outer Spaces” with people like Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel and basketball legend Magic Johnson.
Did you know that Target regularly invites some of the top movers and shakers to their headquarters in Minneapolis? It’s part of their series of talks called “Outer Spaces”, which focus on innovation.
For the talks, Target invites all sorts of people. Some of the famous names that have stopped by include Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, basketball legend Magic Johnson, and the CEO of health and beauty startup Walker & Company Tristan Walker.
Though the common thread of innovation links all the talks, each expert gives their own unique take on what that means to them. Evan Spiegel, for instance, said that innovation for him “is about surprising people”, while Magic Johnson emphasized building trust and community being key.
