Target Ribbon Cutting

SNC representatives had the opportunity to attend the Ribbon Cutting at the new South Hill Target and do a quick preview before the soft opening tomorrow. So what follows is a quick photo tour of the new store.

Dave Black had a couple of announcements about new confirmed tenants and timelines for work on the exterior pads. First was the announcement that Pad A next to Target will contain Spokane’s first Mod Pizza (a regional chain based in Seattle), a Sally Beauty Supply, and haircut shop (probably a SuperCuts).  He also said he has 5 other letters of intent for other spots on the property.

Anthony’s Beach Cafe just got its permits last Friday and will begin construction immediately in one of the spots adjacent to the Community Plaza near Regal. Speaking of which,  the Community Plaza will also be worked on through the rest of the summer. We will certainly keep people up to date on the progress here and through the Southgate District Center Facebook page.

Now for the store interior:

So that’s the quick look. If you have been inside the Northside Target in the last year or so many of the store fixtures and features will seem familiar, the size of the place is what really gets you. Check it out for yourself, the Soft Opening begins Wednesday morning at 8am. The staff is there and very friendly and helpful.
