Construction of the Target is now underway in the space formerly occupied by Alter'd State, Body Central, and Smoothie King.  Alter'd State and Body Central each appear to be dead but Smoothie King has moved around the corner within the same building to Calhoun St. next to Great Clips.

I wonder if Smoothie King got a deal to move out of the way of the space Target needed. That's the only logical way in my mind that they could move after doing what appeared to be abysmal business.

Their spot was bad. That single storefront was behind the railing which just obscured its spot. It doesn't seem like that would do a ton but it was just enough to make it unnoticeable. I'd imagine it'll do quite a bit better along Calhoun instead of in a weird spot on a pass through street.

I just read that the urban Target being built near OSU will have a CVS Pharmacy inside. Does anyone know whether the U Square one will too? If so, it probably doesn't make sense for CVS to continue to operate their standalone pharmacy at McMicken & Vine in addition to one a few blocks down the street inside Target...

They probably will do both. Whereas CVS makes money off of the retail stores in their own locations they only get to make money off of the actual pharmacy part in the Target. Some pharmacists told me that Target-operated pharmacies were the best to work at while CVSs are the worst. Apparently there's no money in operating a pharmacy where the staff is really happy.
