I hope that's not true. I'm so sick of seeing that empty concrete box and would LOVE to have Target here!

And how did Walmart block it? I wouldn't mind Walmart leaving if Target took their place.

I was thinking about this yesterday. I would think that Target would want to sell beer and wine. Isn't the K-Mart building too close to the elementary school to allow that? I know that the Valero is dry b/c of the High School so I figure the restrictions would be the same.

That is so stupid, too close… Like the “high school kids” are going to go to buy beer there… There are many places where they sell beer.

I agree. When I was in HS, we'd go to the 'bad' part of town and get hobos to buy us beer. But still, I think that proximity to the Elementary school would be an issue with whatever rules are in place here.

When we get a Target I expect it will go in around the Corsicana Crossing area, Hwy 45 and Hwy 287, there they would pick up the Richland-Chambers traffic and not compete head to head with Wal-Mart.

hopefully that will be in the very near future when city leaders step down or replaced.

What's funny about the gas station by the high school is that they dont sell alcohol but you can buy all sorts of pipes and bongs aka drug paraphernalia in that store. Fitting since I hear that marijuana is the new cool thing to do at CHS these days
