Bienvenido a San Francisco, TargetExpress
All the deets:
Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) today announced plans to open two new TargetExpress stores in San Francisco’s Financial District and Berkeley, Calif., in March 2015. Target’s first TargetExpress store opened this year in Minneapolis, and the San Francisco-area stores will mark the first time Target is expanding this format outside the Minneapolis area.
The San Francisco store will be approximately 18,000 square feet and located at the southwest corner of Bush Street and Sansome Street, next to the Montgomery BART station, in the heart of the financial district. The Berkeley store will be approximately 12,000 square feet and located at the southeast corner of Shattuck Avenue and Allston Way, next to the Downtown Berkeley BART station, near the main entrance to the University of California, Berkeley.
“From listening to our guests at the two San Francisco CityTarget stores, we know the smaller format of TargetExpress will fit right into the busy San Francisco Bay Area lifestyle and enable us to cater to each community’s needs,” said Kamau Witherspoon, senior director, Store Operations, Target.
Target store teams have spent time understanding each local community to determine the right merchandise mix for each store, so both TargetExpress locations will be customized to fit the individual needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. For example, the Bush Street store will feature a large grab-and-go area with sandwiches, salads, breakfast items like yogurt and mid-day snacks for busy commuters on the go. The store will also include a Starbucks and select items from Target’s Made to Matter collection, which features products from San Francisco Bay Area companies like Annies, Yes To and Method.
The Berkeley store will offer a large selection of grocery items, including produce, dairy, frozen, snacks and beverages to serve the students, commuters and residents of Berkeley. Additionally, both new TargetExpress stores will be stocked with essentials in home, beauty and electronics, including a robust assortment of Target’s owned brands. The stores will also include Target’s popular pick-up-in-store service and a pharmacy.
Target opened the first TargetExpress in Minneapolis in July, and has announced plans to open one in the Highland Park area of St. Paul, Minn. in 2015. A third San Francisco Bay Area TargetExpress will also open in 2015, with a location to be announced in the coming months.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) serves guests at 1,925 stores – 1,795 in the United States and 130 in Canada – and at Target.com. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit to communities, that giving equals more than $4 million a week. For more information, visitTarget.com/Pressroom.

Or whatever your friend’s name is. (Everybody knows a “Megan,” right?).
You’ll get an email (see below). Don’t listen to the email. Instead, email the person whose name is being invoked by ShoppyBag and be all, “Hey girl, what’s up with this ShoppyBag stuff?”
Above all, do not “unsubscribe” and do not “report this email.”
That is all.
Here’s some background from last year. Seems as if traffic at SB has been down since the beginning of 2011 but things are hotting up again. Not too long ago, I had an exchange with a reporter from a big newspaper Back East – he’s baffled as to how ShoppyBag makes money, like, what’s the scam? As am I. No matter, just ignore it and it will go away…
Ah yes, once again, my nemesis ShoppyBag shows up in the gMail. It might happen to you too someday, maybe one of your buds will sign up for this shopping-with-your-friends webthing in order to see a photo from one of her (probably her, but anyway) friends. And then all the names in her address book will get an email like this:
I’m thinking that any photo that you’ll eventually get to see isn’t worth the effort of signing up for the ShoppyBag. See?
ShoppyBag Virus – Gmail Help
How do I unsubscribe from this Shoppybag scam? It is invading my …
What can we do to get rid of ShoppyBag? I have reported it as spam …
I received an email from shoppybag.com saying someone, who I don’t …
So I was in the area, figured I’d drop by to 548 Market Street and ask about why the “ShoppyBag team” appears to be a bunch of cheeseballs. But then, this, this Earth Class Mail online mail service was all that was there. See?
(Bummer, had my fighting trousers on and everything.)
So, if you get an email from ShoppyBag, don’t reply, don’t respond, and don’t click on “report this email.” Just do nothing, as that’s exactly what the cheeseballs at ShoppyBag DON’T want you to do.
I’m thinking ShoppyBag might even be worse than FaceBook, so use caution.
And as for you, ShoppyBag Team, may your souls burn in hell.
(I’ll find your lair someday.)
Oh, and feel free to get a sneak peek of their oppressive terms of service (TOS) after the jump.
