We’ve been actively working to bring a new Target store to Sunset Boulevard for several years now. We have been working very hard with elected officials, city staff, Planning Commissioners, neighborhood groups and local businesses to address issues together and come up with a solution that works for this community.
On May 4, the L.A. City Council unanimously voted in favor of restarting construction at the Target store on Sunset Boulevard. Target is thrilled with the decision by the LA City Council which allows us to take steps to resume construction for this important project, which will bring additional retail to the neighborhood, as well as create about 75 construction jobs and approximately 250 new permanent full- and part-time positions for residents in the surrounding community.
Target is committed to the new store on Sunset Boulevard, and we will continue to work closely with city officials and the community as we begin resuming construction.
Carmen Moch, Senior Group Vice President, Target stores, shares further insights on this project and our commitment to the East Hollywood community.
This new store, located right off the 101, will serve guests in the East Hollywood neighborhood and join more than 100 other Target stores in the greater Los Angeles area, where we’ve operated since 1983.
The store will be a full-size Target store. The assortment here will include fresh groceries, a Pharmacy and Starbucks, apparel and accessories, health and beauty items, home, baby and kids items, and electronics and entertainment sections.
Target in the community
Community giving has always been a cornerstone of our company. It’s why since 1946 Target has given 5 percent of our profits, which today equals millions of dollars a week, to communities in which our guests and team members live and work.
Through innovative programs, team member volunteerism, and strong partnerships, Target demonstrates a commitment to giving. In 2014 Target gave over $4.8 million in the Los Angeles community.
Examples of our community involvement in Los Angeles include:
60,000+ hours in volunteer projects with area non-profits.
Over 1 million pounds of food donated to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
Over 1 million pounds of food delivered through Meals for Minds School Food Pantry programs in 7 L.A. schools, which offer students access to fresh foods and staples right at their own school.
77 Field Trip Grants to area schools to give students opportunities to enhance their learning in arts, math and science.
Additional examples of other local partners we work with include the Los Angeles Unified School District, the California African-American Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, United Way of Greater Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Police Department.
We'd love to hear from you!
