March 9, 2012 > On Target
The slogan could easily be, "Gone today, here tomorrow." Target, which opened its doors at the NewPark Mall in Newark years ago to much fanfare as a multi-level store with a slick escalator for carts, is gone. Its sister store at the Hub is the sole survivor in Fremont...NOT!
Amid another round of fanfare, "The Block," a 26-acre development at Pacific Commons, welcomed the "Fremont South" Target at 43956 Pacific Commons Boulevard in a formal ceremony held Tuesday, March 6, 2012. The new 139,500 square foot store which opened to the public the following day, is one of 1767 Target stores throughout the United States and includes a wide selection of merchandise as well as fresh produce, meat and baked goods.
Other retail stores and a 16-plex Century Movie Theatre complex with approximately 3,000 seats are in planning and under construction. They will complete The Block concept by Catellus, designed to be pedestrian friendly and provide a variety of dining and retail establishments.
