The moment that Los Angeles has been waiting for — just absolutely PINING for — has finally arrived.
The famously unfinished Hollywood Target finally lowered its gates with a grand opening this past Sunday, after 12 long years of being in construction.
It was worth the wait, too — the store is a full retail location (aka One Of The Good Ones and not one of those little city Targets popping up everywhere, like 2018’s Burbank and Koreatown locations) with a Starbucks, CVS Pharmacy, and alcohol section.
Legal issues and zoning technicalities stopped construction on and off over the years at the multiple-storied Sunset and Western location — essentially, the Target was deemed too large.
The Target even had its own Twitter account, calling it out for what it was — a husk.
Users shared photos of the impressively large and well-stocked interior.
And people of Hollywood were quite excited about this long-awaited opening.
Some shoppers expressed their excitement via song and dance.
The opening of this Target comes as a light in the darkness that is COVID in Los Angeles and we are grateful. ?
