Best New Shopping Experience: Target in University Heights

A corporate spokeswoman swears that University Heights' new Target is no larger or better stocked than any other, but it sure feels otherwise. Maybe it's the two-level design (one of only 25 double-deckers nationwide). Maybe it's the cool shopping-cart escalators, which run alongside the standard escalators in the center of the high-ceilinged, well-lit store. Whatever it is, this location makes it even easier to see why Target kicks Wal-Mart's ass.
