retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Target has identified a second location in the city’s downtown for one of its new urban stores.

According to the story, Target plans to open a new store by Spring 2013 in a location at the corner of Geary Blvd. and Masonic Street that used to be occupied by a Mervyn's and Sears.

Target’s first San Francisco location, in the Metreon retail and entertainment complex south of Market Street, reportedly is on schedule to open by the end of this year.
