Affordable fashion comes to Wasilla


If only Target had opened its new store in Wasilla, Alaska a few months sooner. Perhaps then, the city’s former mayor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin could have loaded up on affordable fashion and avoided spending $150,000 on designer duds at Neiman Marcus and Saks. The revelation proved to be one of the more embarrassing moments of the presidential campaign, but Palin didn’t have an opportunity to shop at Target prior to October when the company opened its first two Alaska stores.

The new units were among a group of 45 new stores.


Hawaii is the only state where Target doesn’t have a presence, but that situation will change next year when the first new Target stores open in the Aloha state.
