Super Target opened up today, though not the "grand opening" as I had previously mentioned. But, you got to go inside and buy stuff.

But Mayor Wally was on hand to "cut through the red tape" (or white tape anyways), and allow the good folks to gain early access into the store.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department was there to fingerprint the little ones and recruit folks into working for them. They said that they're hiring an additional 1,300 full time employees, either as deputies, corrections officers, or office staff. If you want to learn about applying, visit their website: www.joinrsd.org

Sandy Nellor, store manager, took the podium to thank everyone involved in getting the new stored opened, and introduced the team of department managers who'll be running the place.

Mayor Wally took the stage next, mostly welcoming Super Target into the neighborhood. He went on to say that his wife Judee is perhaps one of the most excited of all, explaining how eager she was to buy groceries from Target.

Later on, I spoke to Sandy Nellor, who told me that they migrated 120 employees from the old Target, and are currently staffing 375 positions with this new store. Eventually, they'll carry 400 employees.

  1. Holy crowds batman! Target was busy today. The kids enjoyed it- Band, free food and did I mention free food. LOL I think everyone is excited to have a Super Target here. It was a little scary being so big and all but I look forward to figuring out the stores layout.

  3. My husband and I visited the SuperTarget a few hours after the grand opening. There was a particular aisle I noticed that gave me some concern. I believe it was a mistake for Target to have jelly bean candy bins. It was disgusting, how the aisle had candy on the floor and noticing a grown man, open a bin and take a handful of candy to eat (I guess he thought it was free?).

  4. Has anyone heard what is happening with the old Taget store?

  5. I completely agree with your comment about the candy bins. When I went down that isle the only thing I could think about was how many little hands would be in those bins especially being placed so close to the floor. I will definitely not be purchasing any bulk candy and I hope they remove it!

  6. I was there today, have to say LOVE IT!! More selection than the old one. Grocery prices are somewhat ok compared to Staters Bros. All in all I love the new store!

  7. I agree, no bulk ever. I pay close attention to prices and for the most part Target prices are excellent except meat and produce which were a little higher than Winco for instance, but on the other hand the quality is better. There doesn't seem to be as many sales as a traditional store but time will tell. Lots of items that I have never seen before. So all in all I think it's a big winner.

  8. ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPENOctober 10, 2008 7:44 PM

    Whomever approved the design for the traffic flow throughout this center should be fired.
    I just went to this center and entered at the light between Kohl's and Target. Just after entering the marketplace I encountered a rotary/roundabout. I was almost hit twice because people do not know how to drive in a rotary. Besides the fact that it is far too small in the first place for a rotary and it should have just been a 4 way stop sign. I pulled over and watched the rotary traffic for about 5 minutes and witnessed at least 20 close calls and almost saw a kid on a bicycle get hit.
    This needs to be addressed ASAP before someone gets seriously injured or killed!

  9. Turning left from Newport Road to Haun Road is ridiculous. The 2 left turn lanes are only long enough for maybe 5 or 6 cars in each lane. One of the lanes is still coned off. I saw several people coming over the bridge and then having to slam on the brakes to prevent hitting the left turn traffic that extends all the way up the bridges.
    Come on folks, whoever planned the traffic flow in and out of the marketplace is an idiot!

  11. Love the new Target, but the people at the food court has got to improve their job ethics. Lots of socializing and not enough customer service. Went last night and the cashier was kind of rude. Today I went and the sitting area was a mess with no one cleaning. Needs to be kept up or the image of the SuperTarget will become a dirty one.

  12. When you notice the lack of cleaning and the fact that people are not working you need to bring this up immediately to the store manager. The time to correct problems is when they are happening and visible.

  13. first of all, although i feel target is not the best company to be supporting, i think its a wonderful thing that has been added to our community! Whoever was talking about the roundabout and how they saw several close calls and almost had one themselves, thats because you obviously dont know how to use one. Inland Empire residents all need to learn how to drive. All great cities and beautiful country capital cities in foreign countries have roundabouts. And all of its citizens know how to use the...let's get it together folks... Kids with bikes who are riding through the roundabout...DUMB!...Where are their parents?...and im sure they didnt have a helmut. Someone should first address the fact that we have a tremendous amount of youth in menifee that have absolutely nothing to do with their lives because their parents make so much damn money and get spoiled so much, they vandalize and steal for fun. I work security at target and can tell you that our red cement balls have been vandalized and we have teens who come from paloma to steal, tag our restrooms, grind and skateboard on our property, and play with our electric carts and wheelchairs. As far as the candy aisle goes, people pick and eat fruits and vegetables from every grocery store i know, and im sure you touch them and buy them after they put their grimey hands on them. Second of all, at the soft opening, the jelly beans were a mess because once again, we had children who were unattended running through our aisles and making a mess. Our food avenue, is a little unorganized, they have been made aware, and they are adjusting their attitudes. However, people eat in the food court, and let's examine the possibilities...the food court isnt filthy because the team members run through making a mess and dont clean it, its a mess because there are several individuals who come in make a mess and dont pick up after themselves (some people do not even put their trash away thinking that target employees are busers). If you are the type that complains and sees nothing good about this target, please be rationale and dont act like you have never been to a target before. If you would like us to do our jobs and keep target clean and available to you, you need to do your part to...its not just our store, its the community's. The other day, someone exploded with feces in the men's restroom all over the walls and stalls doors and then flushed their drawers down the toilet. I mean, i didnt believe that menifee community was that messy and disrespectful. To the developers and target corporation, that is a slap in the face at how unappreciative the community is to have such a grand resource readily available. And the people doing construction on the freeway areas and the developers, they work damn hard to make sure that all of menifee has safe road signs and stoplights, and have a certain area closed off because obviously its not ready to be opened because its a hazard. That's why there are cones blocking it off...but they can't ensure that everyone uses common sense and good driving skills...and obviously i would not drive careless and like a maniac at 70 an hour if i obviously pass that area everyday and know that it is an area of high traffic. All im saying is use common sense the safe driving practices that we are all supposed to utilize while driving...take care of the community resources that we have and dont blame target team members solely for the nuisances in the community. The majority of us come to work and are passionate about what we do and work hard to please the community and its families.

  14. Wow! What a crazy and lazy comment. I guess that the customers are supposed to get a broom and clean the store themselves, what would your manager think of that. So employees don't have any responsibilities at all. Are they supposed to just talk about what they are going to do after hours while customers are in lines. Are the employees supposed to ignore a mess because they are not busboys or busgirls? With employees like you, I worry that the store is going to become a dump.

  15. Well as an ex target worker, I know what that security guard means. I remember seeing people leave their trash behind and the shelves, racks, carts, floor. Honestly is this how they live at home?? Yes people who work retail are there to make the store look nice but come on the customer has to do there part too. Now I walk into any store and I don't make a mess. I also tell my kids not to run around and make a mess too. Especially not to play inside the racks. While working at Target, I saw some accidents from kids playing in them. Don't give this security guard a hard time, he does bring up a good point about keeping the shopping center clean.

  16. You know, why does the employees allow the kids to run around in the first place. Kick them out! SuperTarget has tons of employees just walking around and talking with one another. The kids are mostly teens whose parents aren't even around. I agree, in a perfect world the parents would be more responsible, but come on. Can't the employees stop gossipping and do their job. Keep our SuperTarget clean - You can't assume that the customers will. I don't make a mess, but you know that many of our youth will. Who's going to clean up then? Sorry to the security guard, didn't mean to blame him. I just want employees to stop goofing off and clean up when they can.

  17. The new super Target is a great store but I was very upset that there weren't any disposable seat covers in the ladies restroom. I was told by Target that the restrooms were cleaned "quite often". If they're not cleaned immediately after being used - they're unsanitary!!! I contacted Target on their website - they said this was Target's policy. Well back to Walmart!
