San Francisco will soon have its first Target store. The city's redevelopment agency has unanimously approved plans for a store on the first two floors of the Metreon on Mission Street.

The Metreon has had several vacancies in the past year. City officials estimate the new Target store will create 250 permanent jobs and bring in an estimated $1.7 million in sales tax revenue each year. The 100,000 square foot store is slated to open in early 2012.

Target also wants to open another store on Geary and Masonic.
