Those questions now have been answered.
Target’s store at 3701 Broadway opened on Wednesday, Aug. 9. It will be a day not soon forgotten by West-Central Illinois shoppers.
The aisles were filled looking at sporting goods, housewares, books, electronics, health care, pet supplies … everything you would expect to find at a Target.
The store will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., with a grand opening celebration set for Sunday.
