FlowingData readers who have been around for a while will remember I made a map early this year that showed the growth of Target stores across America. It starts with the first one in 1962 and then goes from there. It was a follow-up to the Walmart map, which I shared the code and data for.
Anyways, I often still get emails about the Target data. I finally got around to asking if I could release it, and lucky for your the answer was yes. So here you are. Go wild.
By the way, if anyone has similar data for Starbucks, let me know. There’s gotta be at least one Starbucks analyst who reads this blog. Maybe?
