Saw some signage today about Target celebrating 50 years.
Anyone know what this will be about?
Is this just to impress our guests so they know we've been around a long time?
Will any TMs get something out of this?

Saw some things on my STL's desk, looked like invites, they had spots to put time and place on them. Approx. 8x10 in size.

Wasn't the first Target or Dayton store opened in 1962? I guess that'd be about 50 years...

Target opened in May 1962. Walmart opened in July 1962 so both companies will be marking 50 years this year, with Target going first.

Yippee!
Not only are we going to get Target at 50, but also Walmart.
Kmart is having too much trouble, doubt that they'll admit to 50 years....especially since they may not make it to 51!

The big difference is the Target opened as a major retailer at an indoor mall if I remember correctly.

there's a box with a 50 Years of Target sticker in my office in TSC - it's getting dusty. Been there awhile.

I thought we couldn't celebrate birthday's because of some religious reason?

Target @ 50 Years:

We rose from mediocre service to barely passable and then back down to mediocre without missing a beat. We can't do anything for you because birthday's may offend somebody somewhere and that includes this company since it is considered a person by law. Now get off the clock because you are all wasting pay roll.

We're having something on the 13th at my store. And I'm actually working that day!:girl_smile: That almost never happens. They usually do things like this when it's my day off.
