    There's one at Winter Garden and another one near our villa.

    What sort of shop is it and do I need to go there?

    Its a supermarket bit more upmarket than Walmart - it feels like Tesco inside, Cherokee clothing etc. Much prefer it to Walmart!

    They have a very nice housewares department as well as electronics. They carry ( at least in ours) a very adequate boys department as well as groceries and usually a Starbucks Coffee Shop. I like it much better than Wal-Mart.

    Acutally, Target only has food in some locations. :) It's a general merchandise place that has a reputation for having nicer items than Walmart.

    Some sorts call it TAR Zhay :snooty: instead of TarGET. Drive me bonkers. :lol:

    You'll have a good old poke around the one in Winter Garden. :yes: (It's not that great, rather smaller than some, but you'll get the general feel for it). They are usually cleaner than Walmart...

    Super Targets have food and the ones just called Target don't really have food (some small items).

    It's more expensive than Walmart, but appears cleaner.

    Ours isn't a superstore but it does carry quite a bit of food. A lot of shelf items and freezer selections plus milk and juice( pop too) ours does not carry fresh produce though. All kinds of candy and coffee and teas.

    I love Target! We don't have a Super Target here. But we do have a bit of a grocery store with a couple of frozen food aisles as well. If you know how to look, you can find really good deals there as well.

    I don't know that its any cleaner than Wal-Mart but it seems to be easier to maneuver around.
