I had heard rumors of Target coming to the Metreon for some time. What I didn't know is that they are also considering opening a store in my neighborhood's very own vacant Orwellian complex of doom (also known as the former site of Meryn's).
Please NIMBYs, don't fuck this up. You've got over 600 vacant parking spots up there at the Geary location, and I've never seen more than 40 or 50 cars there when I popped into Best Buy. These stores will generate huge amounts of tax revenue for the City and create around 200 jobs each. And if the suggestion of creating a Target delivery service is taken seriously, even more new jobs will be available.
For real though. I want my discount 'Classics of the 80s' double feature DVDs and 50 pack of Mach 3 razors without having to pay for a Costco membership. And I want my elderly Asian neighbor next door to be able to have the opportunity to have a half decent job in the neighborhood, and we all know that Trader Joe's isn't going to hire her.
