Target delays proposed San Rafael store

No major surprise that Target Corp has delayed its plans to build a 140,000 sq.ft store next to Home Depot on Shoreline Parkway in San Rafael. The big box retailer announced last year that it would cut back on store openings for 2009 and 2010 and is also committed to opening a new store next year in Petaluma.

According to the North Bay Business Journal, the landowner, who goes by the unfortunate name of Cal-Pox, is none too keen on the delay and wants the City of San Rafael to finalize the EIR. Cal-Pox is still reeling from the loss of a major tenant earlier this year when the nearby Chevrolet dealership went out of business.
