George Draper Dayton stood on a corner in Minneapolis in the 1890s, counting passersby. Local conventional thinking at the time held that businesses should open only downtown. But Dayton was never a conventional thinker. Based on the number of people he counted that day, he decided to buy uptown. This was the first of Dayton’s many sound business decisions. His new store became the precursor to the Target department store chain. In this interesting corporate profile, Bill Chastain captures Target’s history and explores the strategies that kept it going strong into the 2020s.
