I love Target. But I didn’t realize they had been around since the sixties! The first store opened its doors onÂ May 1, 1962 in Roseville, Minnesota. These photos are like the Target of my dreams.
In 1968 they revamped the logo (down there on the right) to be a little more bold and iconic. It’s the logo as it stands today. I wish I could track down even more photos….it’s pretty fascinating to see, no?
Next up? Track down the story behind this lil beauty!

Now THAT is a Target I would love to shop at! Wow! I had no idea they gave been around that long.
That’s pretty awesome. I love Target and I never knew they opened in the sixties! Looks like they still had an amazing clothing section back in the day!
Holy heck. As if Target isn’t fun enough….the 60’s? If there was ever a reason for some genius to invent a time machine, THAT is it.
The original Target store is near my house. It would be amazing to walk inside and time travel back to when it opened in the 60’s!
White Front was a department store in California that went out of business in the late ’60s. It looks like the cars have the old CA yellow plates and I’m getting the vibe that this was on the corner of Rodeo Road and La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles. It was burned down in the 65 riots and currently is a Target.
