All the deets for Our New Store:

“October 17, 2012 SAN FRANCISCO

Target is pleased to announce that it will open its second CityTarget store in the city of San Francisco in October 2013. The San Francisco West CityTarget will be 119,000 square-feet and located at the southwest corner of Geary and Masonic Streets. On October 10, 2012, the company opened the doors to the city’s first-ever Target store, also a CityTarget, at the Metreon.

“We are thrilled to call San Francisco home to our newest CityTarget at Geary and Masonic,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Western region. “With more than five CityTarget locations confirmed, California has always been a strong market for Target. We are excited to continue being a good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests at both San Francisco Target stores.”

The San Francisco West CityTarget will offer commuters, tourists and urban dwellers the convenience of one-stop shopping with urban living essentials, on-trend fashions and exclusive designer collections. The store also will include a Starbucks and a pharmacy to further enhance guests’ shopping experience.

San Francisco’s newest CityTarget will employ approximately 250 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, where prospective candidates may apply and interview for open team member positions. Prospective candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located at all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.

In addition to the Metreon location in San Francisco, Target opened two CityTargets in the city of Los Angeles at Westwood Market Place and a downtown location at Figueroa and 7th.  With five locations confirmed, the state of California has more CityTargets than any other state in the nation.  Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Westwood, Calif. locations were opened earlier this year.  In addition to the San Francisco West CityTarget, the company has announced 2013 openings in Portland and Los Angeles. 

Since 2011, Target has contributed more than $2 million to support the San Francisco-area community, including Field Trip Grants to San Francisco-area schools, a School Library Makeover at Sanchez College Preparatory School and support for local chapters of the United Way through store grants and employee contributions.

Unemployed and Living in the Sunset Richmond Fogbelt? Affirmative Action for You at the Outside Lands Job Fair!

Friday, July 12th, 2013

What are you living next to way out there in the West Bay? Is it:

1. a halfway house; or

2. a grow house; or

3. a cat house; or

4 a let’s-store-some-illegal-Fourth-of-July-fireworks-here-in-the-basement-just-temporarily-uhoh-KABOOM house?

It’s gotta be something like that.

(I know, man. ‘Cause I used to live on Ninth Avenue in the Inner Fog Belt.)

But now, Fortune favors you! You’re going to get a temporary minimum-wage* gig at the 2013 Outside Lands Music Festival.

It’s affirmative action, baby!

“Outside Lands is hosting a Job Fair this Saturday, July 13th at the SF County Fair Building on Ninth and Lincoln. In order to promote local labor opportunities, they are giving special preference to residents of the Richmond and Sunset Districts. Don’t forget your resume!”

What’s that? You don’t live in the West Bay? Well, just use your out-in-the-Avenues friend’s address, right? Then when you get into a position of authoritah, you can use your power to help your friend sneak** in at OL13. Bingo bango!

All the deets:

“The event takes place on Saturday, July 13 at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park from 10am until 3pm. The festival is hiring for three types of positions:

*Unless you’re going to be bartending. As IRL, at Outside Lands Bartenders Make More.

**’Cause the days of easily sneaking into the Outside Lands fest are over, baby. The way to do it in 2013 is to have an Inside Man just let you in.

Is this your “Innovation Capitol of the World?”

Oh that’s right, you’re all about jobs jobs jobs. And you regularly issue press releases taking credit whenever our unemployment rate goes down.

But what about the time, just recently, when our unemployment rate went up, by half a percentage point?

Oh, so you don’t issue a press release taking credit for that, huh?

How is it possible for San Francisco’s unemployment rate to go up under your watch? How do you explain that?

Oh, that’s right, you don’t.

Maybe it’s possible that you have no effect upon the unemployment rate?

Maybe it’s possible that talking about jobs jobs jobs solely benefits you and your political faction?

Food for thought.

PS: You’re a national laughingstock, in case you don’t know. Why not do something to show that you’re, somehow, slightly independent of Willie Brown and/or PG&E? Just something, anything. Or are you going to be just a Nine-Year Do Boy?
