Our first City Target is finally ready to open! Are you excited as I am?! It officially opens its doors this Sunday, October 14, and I was very fortunate to attend the pre-opening ceremony party last night at the brand new space at the San Francisco Metreon.

The night started with opening speeches from Target executives, welcoming note from SF Mayor Ed Lee and ribbon cutting with Target partners. But the opening spotlight, I have to say, went to our favorite icon and doggie, Bullseye! I’m so used to seeing Bullseye on commercials and gift cards that I was literally star struck when I saw him! I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. :)

The party was so lively and very well thought out. Target opened the entire store for guests to see and the theme of the party was an urban street vibe – so San Francisco! All the Target staff were on site to celebrate and to greet, it was such a happy place to be!

My name is Jeanne and I’m a shopaholic… I did indeed brought this sweater vest home with me. It’ll be the perfect piece to layer all winter long. After all, I do live in San Francisco and layering is important, do you agree? Purchase justified! :)
