The national Target chain is looking into opening a new store in Kailua (Oahu) where existing DonQuijote stands. THIS IS NOT A DONE DEAL, but could be, unless each individual who wants to retain Kailua's unique character makes a stand against this store location. They will make a decision in AUGUST, so please DO NOT DELAY ACTION.
As residents of the town know, this is a primarily small local business town. Having a Target at the center of Kailua would severely hurt local businesses, it would essentially destroy the aesthetic appeal of the neighborhood, and it would create incredibly bad traffic in the area. In addition, it will automatically wipe out about 90,000 square feet of existing buildings to build their structure. The environmental impacts of this also need to be considered. Kailua is NOT the place for a Target store.
