George Draper Dayton opened up Goodfellow Dry Goods in Minneapolis in 1902. When he was younger, his father couldn’t afford to send him to college because he would offer his services to poor people. So Dayton left home to go work. He was such a workaholic, however, that he had some health issues and so he had to go back home. There, he became a banker and soon enough, he had enough money so he bought the Bank of Worthington. He changed the name multiple times; first to Dayton Dry Goods Company, then to Dayton Company, then Dayton Hudson Corporation, then Target Corporation later on.

The J.L. Hudson Company, Dayton’s soon-to-be partner, built the first enclosed shopping mall, called Southdale, in 1956. In 1962, Target was created and launched. They partnered up with the J.L. Hudson Company and they expanded real quick after that. In the 1990s, they made the very first SuperTargets around the country to compete with stores like WalMart and Kmart na they also made Target Guest Cards. They have divisions which include Mervyn’s, Marshall Field’s, Target Financial Services, Target Stores, target.direct, and CityTarget. And now Target Corporation is the fourth largest retailer in the U.S.A. with 1,556 stores around

    Global climate change is upon us, and the visible effects are ubiquitous. One of the most temperature-sensitive organisms on earth, coral, is proving to be the litmus test in this contentious issue: bleaching (a process by which coral reefs lose their life-giving algae) has become more widespread in the past decades as sea temperatures rise, causing reefs to “’collapse catastrophically’” (Markey).
