Target Store To Open In Downtown L.A: Mayor Villaraigosa Calls It Largest Retail Lease There In Two Decades
Yeah, downtown hipsters need 80,000 rolls of toilet paper and ten gallons of shampoo too. That icon of American, super-size-yet-hip consumerism, Target, is set to open a downtown Los Angeles location, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced Wednesday.
You like lots of stuff, and Target does too: The mayor's office is spinning the more than 100,000-square-foot store at West Seventh and South Figueroa streets as the largest retail lease downtown in two decades.
The Tar-jay, as we like to say, is set to open in 2012 at the 7th+Fig shopping center.
The mayor will be hyping it for the cameras Thursday morning downtown.
