It's been a rumor for some time but signs are looking better then ever before that a new Target will open in Spokane on the South Hill just south of the Shopko on Regal St. . The site of the rumored Target is owned by well known local developer Dave Black, who recently applied with the City of Spokane to begin site work on the land for an un-named large retailer. While the name was left off of the plans, prior plans have mentioned the phrase "future Target" .
The plans submitted by Black indicate the site will be a commercial development called Regal Place and will fall near the corner of Palouse Hwy and Regal St. . Black had also once purposed a Home Depot store on land directly to the north of the Regal Place land but those plans never came to fruition.
Although it does look as if the South Hill Target may become a reality in the near future it is still too soon to tell anything as to size of the store, how many jobs it may create or whether it may include a grocery area similar to the Target's at North Pointe and in Coeur d' Alene. However if the store does open it will be the 4th Target store in the Spokane and Coeur d' Alene area.
