Target Is Taking On Whole Foods In A Competition To Win The Millennial Consumers

Target has quite a few super-sized versions that offer a full grocery section to their customers. They often carry different brands than other stores and even have a few of their own store brands that actually taste good. They plan to completely redo the grocery section of these stores and go in a completely different direction. Target hopes to rival Whole Foods with a larger variety of organic, natural, and unique foods not found in regular grocery stores confirmed consulting manager Dr. Jennifer Walden. This announcement comes only weeks after Whole Foods announced that they will be opening smaller, more inexpensive items at their new stores aimed at the younger generations. Target already knows that the Millennials and beyond regularly patronize their stores and plan to use that to capture their attention before their competitor’s new stores open. It is a very competitive and wily game the Target execs seem to be playing, they simply have not even tried to keep their plan secret. That might be part of their ad strategy to get the word out now and build excitement as they begin to makes the changes. Many will just be happy if there is a less expensive way to buy organic foods.

Finding a Place to Live in New York City

Finding a place to live, in New York City, can be difficult whether you are trying to rent or buy. Having the right organization, such as TOWN Real Estate, can make the chore much easier when it comes to NYC apartments for rent.

New York City offers many opportunities for buying or renting real estate. Of course, prices vary according to the size desired, location and so forth. Using a real estate professional will help you avoid the hassle of searching ads which, as a rule, do not provide all the pertinent information such as type of lease, requirements for purchasing, quality of the neighborhood and so forth.

In a place such as New York City, people are constantly moving. This makes apartments and houses often becoming available that do not appear in any newspaper. That is why having a reliable real estate person working for you is so important. They will have their fingers on the pulse of the city and know exactly when something you are looking for becomes available.

Places such as Upper West Side, Midtown West, Murray Hill, West Village and hundreds of other places will often provide a location that is within walking distance to your work. This helps you avoid the heavy traffic of driving or riding on public transportation. For people with children, finding a place that is near a school and other conveniences is extremely important. All these things are taken into consideration by the real estate company you engage.

TOWN Real Estate agents spend a great deal of time learning the business. As a result, once you have explained your needs and budget, they are able to let you know what is available. If there is nothing currently on the market, they will keep looking for you. This not only saves you time but money as well. A personal relationship with a real estate agent means that you will have someone knowledgeable about properties in the New York City area who will be personally involved with your real estate needs.
