Okay, time to make the shopping list.  Paper towels, dog food, cheese, and of course a Venti White Chocolate Mocha.  Target in Duluth asked itself an important question.

So what can an upscale discount store like Target do to make its “guests,” as they call their customers, even happier?

By offering them premium cup of java, of course.

To that end, a partnership between Starbucks and Target carved out in 2002 that’s been benefiting new Target stores and its super store conversions ever since, is coming to the Duluth Target at 1902 Miller Trunk Highway.

A Starbucks coffee shop is going in near the store’s food cafe. It should be up and running by late March or very early April, complete with the usual signage and merchandise.
