store layout
  • 1940-1959

Designed as a shop within a shop, the Field’s 28 Shop opens in 1941 to recreate the Paris boutique experience. Two years later, Dayton’s opens the Oval Room, offering European quality, style and exclusivity to Midwestern shoppers.

  • This underlies Target’s efforts to develop affordable, stylish products that are:
      • Simple
      • Functional
      • Timeless
experience boutique
Experience: Boutique
  • The one-of-a-kind experience comes from our department store roots and ongoing commitment to great prices and stylish innovations; the one-of-a-kind feeling is why millions of guests visit every year.
  • More than creating an easy-to-shop environment, the focus on design means that the way a product or a display makes a guest feel is as important as any other criteria.

One word: retail...

Red and Khaki everyday and everywhere

Intern Experience/Schedule varied by store

Working every other weekend and at least one night a week. Somehow they tried to turn this into a “positive” thing

Getting up at 2:45 am for Logistics

Stocking shelves even as an ETL. Is that really a life goal? (it comes with the job)

ETLs were not always prepared during their week of training

Projects did not have as much impact as was emphasized

STL conducted evaluations even if s/he was not at the store very often

Our Feedback - Pros? Cons?
