Target opened several New York City style corner stores for four days only. I think that's pretty cool of Target, though I do love the independent stores. From the photos I've seen, I prefer the outside to the inside, which looks like it got mixed up with McDonalds.
The Gap does something similar in a rotating theme store next to their flagship NYC store (sounds like rotating art in a cafe...). The latest rendition featured Parisian boutique colette. Check out their website — kind of fun.
