Waymark Code: WM3FWD
This store opened on October 10th, 2001, and is just few blocks away from the Target Center Arena. It is located right in the heart of Downtown Minneapolis, and is part of Target Corporation's World Headquarters complex.
This particular Target was many years in the planning, and was the subject of heated political and community debate all the way up until the grand opening. The store features a three-story glass entrance and a design that sets it apart from most suburban Target stores...this store alone cost Target $16.3 million USD, and the city of Minneapolis $59.9 million USD to develop.
One unique feature of the multi-level Targets are the special escalators, called Vermaports, that customers can use to transport their shopping carts between the levels. You push your cart through the gates, and it automatically makes the trip up or down, while you ride right next to it on the normal escalator!
