Jeese, this is looking too similar to 180th and center. That Fantasy's and Super Walmart are both on 180th too, now Super Target, man.

Why on earth would target want to build a store there. Every time I go to the store on 180th there are always more employees there then customers. I would think that they would build father away like IN Elkhorn, maybe next to the Menards.

If you mean the Target on 180th & Center I have to disagree. It is always busy when I am there and that is at least once a week. If you are talking about the Walmart on Maple, then I will default to you and that may be the case.

I do agree that it would be a suprise to me if they built there with a S.T. just down the road at 132nd but then again it is aobut the same ditance to the Reg target on Center street and that seems to survive.

132nd and maple - it's about 4.25 miles as the bird flies from the center one, 6 or so driving.

And it feels longer too, cause it's far easier to move east west than north south.

Talking with a friend who has worked for Target for a long time, she said the 132nd and Maple store is scheduled for a major remodeling in 2007 but she has heard nothing about a new store west of that. Unless she isnt saying... :D

what do you mean by "It's not official but it is"? Where did you hear this?
My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.

The distance would be roughly equivalent as that between the regular Target at 132nd and West Center and the Super Target at 180th and West Center. Perhaps they have plans for a regular sized Target or a Target Greatland at 180th.

I do know one thing... Brad is a very reliable source. :)

Target seems to be nearly complete with chucking the "Greatland" idea. THe one near my house was a greatland, was remodeled and expanded, and became just Target.

... I actually worked at (and opened) the first SuperTarget (132nd & Maple) back in the day. Joe Montana, Amy Grant, and about a zillion people. Good times. I can't believe they're talking remodel already! It's not even 11 yet!

I thought this was going in at 204th (or so) and maple..

Are you SURE it's at 168th, and not a lil closer to elkhorn?(In elkhorn)

Target puchased the land at 204th and Dodge Street, NE Corner which should be in the same arenext to the HyVee and Menards

Postby Guest » Fri May 19, 2006 4:16 pm

numerous rumors i heard from a friend at target.

in the omaha area- target has land for a store at 202nd dodge. they are looking at a possible location around the hwy 50/370 intersection. the west maple store will undergo a $26mil renovation to modernize the store and make it smaller. since it was the first supertarget they built it too big and are suffering from paying taxes on the additional sqft not needed and declining sales from the walmart down the street.

in lincoln- the south location will close and replaced with a supertarget at another location in the area. also they are looking at land for a location in ne lincoln/waverly area.

in cb- they are looking at a location along west broadway just across the bridge from dto

Jeez, so if all this goes through, the metro will have 10 Targets. Better than Wal-Mart, but as a Target employee, I didn't know there was this much demand for Targets.

If the 50/370 one goes through, hopefully it'll spur further retail development in that area so the western I-80 entrance into our city isn't so industrial.

The new Lincoln Super Target will be at 40th Street and Yankee Hill Road in southeast Lincoln with opening scheduled for July 2007. This was made offical with aproval about two weeks ago.

I can see the remodle at the Maple store but make it smaller??? Isn't it already smaller that the one on Center?? I will be suprised to see it reduced in size.

There is no way it would cost $26 million to renovate the ST at 132nd and Maple. Are you sure you didn't meat 2.6 million???

Build them and they will come. I'm sure I've supported a few part-time employees with the money I've spent at Target in the last 10 years. This store is adored by the masses. Which is why one of my weekly reads is the Slave to Target blog. I can't help but identify with the blog authoress who says, " THIS BLOG IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH TARGET CORP. WE LOVE TARGET. CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT. WANT TO MARRY IT." lol indeed

After visiting the downtown Target in Minneapolis earlier this year, however, I am so hoping for a 2 story Target here so I can use the cart trolley! 8)

Target is indeed working on this site as we speak... Lots of inline shops and several typical pad dwellers as well...

I was in the new Runza today at 17021 Maple. The Manager there was speaking to the Radio Shack manager and they were both commenting on the new Taco Bell which has started construction. They also were talking and pointing to the SuperTarget site.

So there is a little more evidence confirming this "rumor". Perhaps it has moved past the rumor stage already. But thought I would tack on this little bit of extra info just in case.
My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.

Is the new Runza open to the public now? I wonder if Target will announce after the 2 stores on 72nd open?

^Yep. the manager told me yesterday was their opening day 7/6. The place smelled more like upholstery glue than food. Need to get a few more mushroom swiss burgers on the grill and onion rings in the fryer before the glue smell is a distant memory.

I got to say this here, I can't hold it in longer. You guys all do realize that the World-Herald may well have known about this as long or before everyone here did but because of the journalistic standards that they have to up hold, they couldn't report it any sooner. And one other thing, did the OWH scoop eOmaha by reporting the PacLife news that effectively ended the long and fruitless speculation that occurred on this site? I am sure many of you are well aware of what I am saying, but just thought I would put up a little bit of defense for the voiceless WH on this site. Don't get me wrong I think the Rumors forum is a great thing, but to put it in direct competition with the World-Herald is a tad unfair I would say.

And one other thing, great to hear that a higher quality of design is actually being implemented and not just talked about in Omaha. It is great step forward for sure.

I think we all know that the OWH for legal reasons can't bandy about all these rumors until the appropriate papers are filed.

Most of us treat like the OWH, sure we make fun of it, but we still like it, and if anyone ELSE (non omahans) make fun of it, then we get upset and defend it.

IMO, the OWH has a tendency to report what it wants to, not what the people want them to. Of course, I could be biased, but I happen to own a small business in Omaha that's approached them several times about writing about us. However, has anyone here seen us in the OWH?

Of course, not - besides, do you really feel the OWH has "journalistic standards"? Give me a break - anyone in their right mind knows that any reporting agency, i.e., tv news, papers, radio, whatever, will always rush to spill the beans on news first. Journalistic standards - whatever :shock:
