When this two-story Target opened back in the mid-90s, I was ecstatic that I no longer had to drive all the way to Duarte or Alhambra just to score some good buys on every day items like house wares and the like. The layout was great, I could find things with no trouble, and the selection was always good as well. However, sometime after the second Pasadena store opened on East Colorado, this Target underwent a remodeling of some kind and I find the layout a bit confusing. Still, if you happen to be near the Playhouse District, the location is convenient for picking up any number of items you may need. Here's a tip - enter the parking lot from Union Street on the back (north) side of the store and head up to the top level. There's usually always a spot to park up there.
Before the second Target store opened further east on Colorado Blvd, this store was one that I frequented regularly. In fact, I came to the grand opening celebrations that were held here and marveled at the novelty of having two full levels of Target bargains to choose from at any given time. Most of time items advertised were always in stock, prices were good, and the store was well kept. These things are still true today, but I find it difficult to locate the things I need now that the store has been remodeled. Still a great place to shop, and one that I recommend highly.
I remember when this store used to be a "Fedco." The location was great, but the layout was confusing and overwhelming. When Target came in, I wondered if they'd do well since there's another store about 2 miles west of this one on the same street. However, this store is always well-stocked, clean and easy to navigate. Plus they've recent expanded their grocery section, so now I can get many food items here at good prices while I do my other shopping.
