Old Timer – November 2021


Vermont is going to get a TARGET store.

Big deal, right? Well, it’s probably not a big deal to those of us here in Boerne, but there’s interesting facts behind the story of TARGET finally moving into Vermont. Most glaring is that Vermont has been the last state in the country without a TARGET, and the reason that they don’t have one is because Vermont has continually said “No” to TARGET each time they tried to move in. They had a K-Mart (remember those?) and so Vermont told TARGET to pound sand and find somewhere else to build.

Recently, that K-Mart finally shuttered and so the City in question did the unthinkable (yes, I’m being sarcastic): THEY ASKED THE CITIZENS WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO REPLACE THE K-MART. Well, the overwhelming winner was TARGET.
