Ride with Patch on a tour of the parking lot between Trader Joe's and Target.
A recent article about the Brentwood Trader Joe's expanding into a space next next door brought comments about parking being, among others, "the worst lot ever." Patch wondered, how bad is the parking in front of Trader Joe's, really? A video camera on the dash recorded about 17 minutes of driving the aisles. The tour started at around 1:30 on Saturday afternoon. This video is the scariest minute that could be pulled out of that drive. There were no near-accidents, but it wasn't fun. Sorry it gives the experience of the lot without actually going into Trader Joe's!

Target applicants used to have to complete 704 true/false questions about everything from politics to their sex life.
Looking for a job, either as full time as you can get, or maybe seasonal? Sounds like if you want to work at Target it's not easy to get in. An article by AOL suggests it's harder to get into Target than Harvard. Here's the process at a California Target, according to the article: "Target's hiring process for its new stores has been designed with military precision. Applicants take an on-spot assessment test, interview with two current employees, and are then escorted to the bathroom for an on-site drug test. If all goes well, they'll get a job offer, assuming their background check comes up clean." Have you, or are you planning on applying for a position at the Brentwood Promenade Target? A caller to the store is told to apply online. Do …

Walmart in Maplewood and Target in Brentwood both have more than what you need.
As an attempt to provide a public service, Maplewood-Brentwood Patch shopped the Maplewood Richmond Heights 8th grade school supply list at the Maplewood Commons Walmart and the Brentwood Promenade Target. It's complicated, of course, because of the vast array of options in every category. At both stores, supplies can be found in office supply and special school supply areas. I looked for the most economical options, keeping in mind what is on the school list. You might make different choices from what I found, for instance, you might want to buy a box of 50 colored pencils, or 10. In other words, take this research with a grain of salt. Target has supplies compartmentalized with signage above each category in the school supplies area. …
