Ocean Beach stores closing to make way for Target Express

Several stores were preparing to close to make way for a Target Express, including the Antique Center – and many locals said they are not happy about it.

Glenn Millar and Alexandra Watkins moved to Ocean Beach less than a month ago and said they were reeled in, in part, by the local shops of Newport Avenue.

"We found out a Target is coming in here and we thought, ‘There goes the neighborhood,’" said Watkins.

"This is such a cool, indie street, and we have no idea what the controversy was, but we bet it was pretty brutal," said Watkins.

"The same thing happened in South Park, and they put in the Target," said Watkins. "People were mad at first and now they love it. Maybe that will happen."

Quite a lot has been going on:

Antique Center closing in Ocean Beach to make way for Target Express store

In it’s place will be a Target Express store, which residents have been fighting against coming to the small beach community.

Ocean Beach residents who are opposed to the corporate chain coming to their town will have to take a new approach, boycotting the store.

Longtime Ocean Beach Antique Mall to be Replaced by Target Express

Ocean Beach’s mega-antique mall, which is a bit of an antique itself, closed its doors Sunday to make way for a Target Express.

The mall has been a fixture of Newport Avenue for several decades, and the news that a Target would be moving in sparked anti-corporation protest in the beach community last year.

“It is sad to see it go,’ said shopper Jake Zamzow the day before the mall closed its doors. ‘I don’t think a lot of people want a Target to come in, but I understand the owner’s need to retire and not a lot of people have a lot of money to shell out and turn it into anything else.’

Shoppers crowded the antique store to take advantage of discounts and grab those last minute treasures one last time.

‘I have not seen this many people in there ever since I have been coming to this store,’ Zamzow said. ‘I guess that’s good. Go out with a bang!’
