About Target Corporation
“Expect more. Pay, less.” This is the company’s motto from the early days. Target Corporation is founded by George D. Dayton, a New York businessman who’s first interest was the banking and real estate. He started this business on Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis by opening the Dayton Dry Goods Company, today is known as Target Corporation. Dayton was head of the company until he died in 1938. Later, his son and grandsons developed the company into a national retailer.
The first Target store started on May 1, 1962. It was a branch of the Dayton’s department store offering “a new kind of mass-market discount store that caters to value-oriented shoppers seeking a higher-quality experience.”
Its main rival is Walmart with prices hard to beat, and instead of that Target appeared as “cheap chic” by recruiting well-known designers like Michael Graves, Tracy Reese, or Lilly Pulitzer. This great tactic has made Target retail with richer customers than Walmart’s. Honestly, even the wealthiest Americans like to purchase at Target. Even the people with a net worth above $5 million are shopping there.
