Target Beam Raising in Homewood, AL.

Tuesday afternoon, June 26, saw the city of Homewood come one step closer to changing shopping patterns for residents throughout metro Birmingham’s central region. Its mayor, Scott McBrayer, was joined by city officials and the business community as Minneapolis, MN-based retailer Target held a beam raising ceremony for their 135,000 square foot store currently under construction at Colonial Brookwood Village.

As mentioned on this site a little less than two years ago, this will be Target’s sixth location in the metropolitan area and the one located closest to Birmingham’s city center, reasonably reducing potential travel distances for potential shoppers in neighborhoods like Norwood, Fountain Heights, Southside and Central City. It is scheduled to open sometime in 2013 and employ approximately 200 people.

Is it really that big a deal? There's already a Walmart close by, and Brookwood Village is next door. It's not like the services Target provides isn't already in that area of Homewood.
