City Target opens in downtown Portland today

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Big news for shoppers: the City Target in downtown Portland opens its doors for the first time Wednesday.

City leaders held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new store Tuesday.

The City Target differs from other Target stores because it caters to people living in downtown Portland and the Pearl District.

It will feature Trail Blazers, Oregon Ducks and Oregon State Beavers merchandise.

One Portland shopper said she has changed her mind about having a big box store in downtown Portland.

"At first, I didn't like the fact that there was a Target coming to downtown because there's so many local places downtown that I thought it would maybe deter people from going to the other places," said shopper Michelle Wilkins. "But the only other way you can get to Target is by going to Tigard, and this is so much more convenient for us."

The store is located in the Galleria building at Southwest 10th Avenue and Morrison Street. Though the store opens Wednesday, the official grand opening is Sunday, July 28.
