I've been to a few of the Orlando stores. They're all pretty dumpy..
Yeah, the gateway store is pretty much the depressing definition of a super low volume. Once the Cascade Station and Portland East targets opened up that store pretty much was in a downward spiral in sales. The Pfresh upgrade to both stores was the final nail in the coffin.
isn't Cascade station the newest one? I was susposto help open that one during my time with spot but they never gave me the info. I have yet to go to a "new" target but the one in clackamas sort of made that up as its an older store but tottally remodeled. I was surprised they placed food ave and starbucks up front right bellow the offices. I thought that wasn't possible due to the vents.
but Tigard was pretty depressing. That is till they got their remodel.
Yeah the Orlando stores pretty much suck, especially the Waterford one lol
Sucks about the one closing though. I really liked that one, it is a little older (P01 i believe), but it had "personality" i guess. It has the not very smooth by design stone-like floor in grocery and the cool neon. Always a very quiet store though, I havent been there in nearly a hear. I took alot of the pictures the first time i was in there because i just liked the feel and design of it lol. Im a sap for old stores/prototypes i guess lol I like them alot better than the new cookie-cutter design
The last time I was in Orlando I went to a Target. It was like a P99 without P-Fresh and Latino designation or whatever (everything was also in spanish) and they hadn't been right-sized. It was dirty and dark and just yuck.
Those stores got P-fresh updates? They just canceled our's even though we are crushing last year's sales.
The latest stupidity from them was "If you guy's are doing really well then we aren't going to touch it." Wal-Mart just finished their reconstruction of a super store about two miles away.
Sucks that those stores closed though, I hate it when people lose their jobs.
