East Liberty is about to experience a big change. Target is coming into town and bringing 240 jobs with it. This Target will be somewhat different from the average suburban Target, as it will have two floors. The first floor will be parking, and a glass entry with escalators or elevators will lead to the second floor retail.
Target will be constructed on Penn Circle East where the vacant Penn Circle High Rise is located. Construction on the Target will begin after the high rise and other two commercial buildings on the lot are demolished. The retail store is scheduled to open the fall of 2010.
