TARGET ANNOUNCES NEW LINE OF ENGLISH SHOES
Venerable Church’s English Shoes To Produce New Subline

MINNEAPOLIS, April 1, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) announced today that English shoemaker Church’s Shoes, founded in 1873, will produce a line of English inspired dress shoes for sale in Target Stores.

The new line, to be known as Church’s Signature Shoes, will feature Church’s high quality polished calfskin. As an added feature the shoes will be “permanently polished†with a thin plastic veneer, which will also make the shoes waterproof. Church’s spokesperson, Ima Cobbler, stated that a new production process perfected in their new Asian facility known as Michelin® welting will be employed. “We are the leaders in this exciting new area of shoe production,“ Ms. Cobber said. “Since our purchase by Prada we have been heading in this direction. A partnership with a store like Target was the next logical step. Now everyone in America can have quality English-inspired shoes accessible to them.â€

The partnership by Target is the latest in a series of designer name co-operation for the discount store. To complement the new line of shoes Target is in negotiations with Thomas Pink, London’s leading Jermyn Street shirtmaker. "We eventually want to be able to offer all the benefits of London in all our locations across the country," said Astaire Faux, Target spokesperson. "Several Savile Row firms have contacted us about a suit line," he added. Mr. Faux was unable to name specific firms at this time.
