Since October 10th of last year the, panhandle was changed forever.
Now, there is a new norm and part of that norm is just idle curiosity of what businesses may re-open and what is closed forever.
On this weeks ‘open for biz.’. We take a look at the re-opening of the Target on 23rd street.
The new look Target has a larger baby section, cosmetics, electronics and more.
Shopper Aaron Rich said, “man i think the whole community is excited to get Target back people are posting on facebook and getting excited about it and me and Bryan came by and we were pretty pumped about it to”.
Bryan Taylor also enjoying the new look store saying “this is definitely a win for the community we are trying to make wins every day we have some big wins coming this is definitely one of them it’s been a staple in the community for a long time so while it’s been a way that brings us all back to a state before Hurricane Michael and that’s important for everybody”.
