The bullseye is centering on Gravesend!

A new Target outpost will open next year at the neighborhood’s Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center, according to a spokeswoman for the retailer.

The store will fill more than one-and-a-half football fields’ worth of space across two stories of the Bay Parkway mall, a massive storefront combining the former Caesar’s Bay locations of kid-centric retailers Toys ‘R’ Us and Babies ‘R’ Us, which recently shuttered after their parent company declared bankruptcy, according to a New York Post report.

The new Target store will be Kings County’s sixth, joining two sister locations Downtown, two in Midwood, and one in Bensonhurst. And when it opens, the department store will join other big-box retailers inside the mall, including Kohl’s, Best Buy, and Modell’s, the Post reported.

Reasonable discourse

Chyna Williams from The Bronx says:
Many people in the community, were hoping for Dunking Doughnuts. Their going to to be very disappointment by this. The space would be ideal for a mega-doughnuts, plus parking. I guess the Dunkin crew are gonna have to step up they’re game if they wanna make it in this doggy dog world!

A Florida style Tootsies would be great for the community. It's essentially a Costco but the goods and services are much better.

That is an excellent location, right on the water, off the highway, lots of parking, and a new "Olive Garden" restaurant as well! E.J. Korvette's and, before that, Nelly Bly next to the Bay Parkway pier have been gone a long time. Hope this will revitalize the mall.
