Target Shack

Target has phased out the garden centers in their stores. They are phasing in Fresh produce grocery stores. An agreement has been made with Radio Shack, who now also carries Verizon, to operate mobile phone kiosks within their stores. This will better position Target to compete with Walmart and Best Buy stores. The Bullseye stores seems to be a win-win for both companies. It also fills the void left by Circuit City, Blockbuster, and Sam's Club. They will also carry AT&T and T-Mobile. The logo to the left is clever. It incorporates The newest (radio) R-O logo without using their new moniker of "The Shack". Super Target already has such other stores as Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and Wells Fargo Bank inside their buildings. Having a shack inside for the electronics makes sense. It now has a bigger target.
