OK, so it's not a Target in Downtown Milwaukee, but it's pretty close: The retail giant announced today that it will open a new location in Bayshore shopping center in Glendale. 

The new Target will move into the former Boston Store location, which closed in August 2018, found on the east side of Bayshore on Fountainview Drive next to the Lydell Avenue parking garage. Construction is currently underway on the space, which will cover 128,512 square feet and extend two stories. 

"We are incredibly excited to welcome Target as an anchor tenant of the new and revitalized Bayshore," said Kirk Williams, managing director for Cypress Equities, the mall's manager, in a release. "From day one, we have done our best to listen to the community and respond to the shopping, dining and entertainment experiences that they desire, and Target remained at the top of their list and ours."

The opening date for the new Bayshore Target location is to be determined. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more updates.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
