I found this tonight while looking for something else on (sadly discontinued) Google Newspapers. This is from September 1, 1995.

Caldor Rainbow has more information about this place, and the futuristic looking itty bitty McDonalds inside.

Someone a long time ago used an old Montgomery Ward catalog as a recipe book, like how people today will reuse books as art journals.

The Old Target Store in Duluth.

Pictures before a 1982 remodeling of a Target store. Man, all that red is kinda nauseating. I wanted to see if the store was still open, but there was no address on the page. Maybe its this one, although the Google Street View image is terrible, the store certainly seems huge enough to be the one on the webpage.
