MOC - Target Country store
Posted 17 August 2010 - 07:49 AM
To explain to those in the U.S.A., our Target.....well this from their web site might make things more clearer.....
By 1968, Lindsay & McKenzie Pty Ltd had grown to 14 small stores around Victoria. Myer Emporium Ltd, recognising the potential for growth, bought the business and the result was Lindsay's Target Pty Ltd.
In March 1973, we became Target Australia Pty Ltd, and in August 1985, the Myer Emporium Ltd and GJ Coles & Coy Ltd merged, becoming Coles Myer Ltd. In 1996 Fosseys and Target merged, and in 1999, Fosseys stores were converted into Target Country, bringing the benefits of our services and fashion to regional and country areas.
Still I have to build the interior, roof and tiling the paths/flooring......my job has just begun on this MOC !
Post more pictures soon !
Comments and suggestions welcome !
Keep on bricking !

The round glas pieces look brilliant for window displays!
I can't wait to see the final version.
I'd add flat plates not next to the door but everywhere outside.
Will there be a second floor? If not, I'd add a big sign on top - but you suppossably planned this anyway.

Now above we have our typical Target Country store, these would be either originally....
A converted Fossey's discount store (owned by Coles Myer at the time) or.......
a classic Coles Store or Coles Variety Store - first established April 1914 in Collingwood, Victoria and spread just like the 5 and dimes did in the U.S. like F.W. Woolworth.
Updating tomorrow so keep on bricking !
Oops sorry 'Klaus' missed you there......tiling problem I'll look into that....better shots when I make displays/counters and my famous stickered merchandise !
Thanks for the comments and suggestions 'Klaus' - oh, almost forgot - single storey but with a huge fasia signage just like the IGA and Mensland stores.
Keep on bricking again !

True try and find Lego in one - unless it's a toy sale.....I'm city based but have visited at least 10 in S.A. and Victoria......but I feel they are a dying breed as Target have launched their mid-scale stores with a bit of everything for kitchen to bed to clothes on your back to yes,......LEGO !
Keep on bricking everyone !

Those in Canada and U.S. are so much more lucky than Aussie shoppers.....Giant Tiger you're quite welcome to come over !
Anyway straying off there a little eh ?
I have to dig up 6 2x2 lbg tiles this morning to finish the path at the front, then start work on either the interior or top wall section where the Target Country sign goes to and it will be big too !
Keep on bricking !

What do you think ?
The roof will be a pitched roof using classic red slope bricks, floor and interior will be done before the roof goes on.
I have to sticker bricks into kitchenware and bedding.....ah well life of a star !
Clothes racks too, plus a customer service counter or better known as tbe checkout !
Target Country stores generally have only one checkout with up to 2 registers (well that's what I have seen in my travels).
Keep those comments and suggestions comming - they are always welcome !
And remember......Keep on bricking !

Now 'goto's suggestion of a plates to raise the brick work has been considered but it would effect the entrances to all the shops, in fact every building would have to be redone - but thanks for the suggestion.
Posting more later today.......so keep on commenting.....and keep on bricking !

I have started putting tan plates towards the front of the store, this will act as carpet.
The store will have two carpeted areas while the rest will be tiled with large white floor tiles.
It is a common trick used in discount stores of have tiled pathways and for areas stocking hardware's (like hardware, kitchenware, electrical, etc.,.) and carpeted areas for software's (like clothing, shoes, manchester, etc.,.)......posting more pictures today !
Keep on bricking !
