Presented by Jim Hale and Philip Garon


Jim, former Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Dayton Hudson Corporation (now Target Corporation) and Phil, former outside counsel to Target, will discuss the history of American department stores, including the influence of German Jewish immigrants on their birth and growth, their mergers and acquisitions and the reasons for their many dramatic failures and downturns, with a focus on the growth of Dayton Hudson/Target, the challenges it has overcome and its ability to avoid the fate of most of its competitors.
