New Yorkers are ecstatic that a Target is coming to Manhattan. Does this mean the end of pop-up shops? Possibly but I don't see it as likely. Nonetheless, the new East Harlem store opens it's doors on July 25, and we are all very excited! Even as a Brooklynite I am hopeful that the new Target in the city will mean that my local store will

As part of the celebrations, Target has recruited some celebrated New Yorkers, including power fashion couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, renowned designer Stephen Burrows, and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson (such a sweetie) to collaborate on a series of limited time collections that reflect and honor the spirit of Harlem while giving back to the local community. 5% from the sale of goods will be will be donated to a Harlem non-profit of each designer's choice.

Isabel and Ruben Toledo chose el Museo del Barrio. Stephen Burrows chose The Fund for Public Schools (in support of the library at The Young Women’s Leadership School of East Harlem). Marcus Samuelsson chose The Fund for Public Schools (in support of the library at Harlem PS 180: Hugo Newman).

The collections will be available for purchase in the East Harlem store beginning July 25, followed by select stores and on on August 1. Prices range from $3.99 to $34.99.
