Now that temporary designer shops are all the rage (we remember our rose-colored youths when we were first talking about the trend back in 2006), some of the bigwigs want in on the action as a way to appear “hep” in front of the nation’s young people. Such is the case with Target, who has announced that they plan to open a series of temporary, fly-by-night shops in New York from September 12th through the 15th, called “Bullseye Bodegas,” each of which will feature nothing but their various stuffs by name designers, including Jonathan Saunders and Sigerson Morrison. All the info is available here, and below you’ll find a list of where you can catch these hep locales:

Midtown: 101 57th Street at 6th
Union Square: 813 Broadway between 11th and 12th
SoHo: 489 Broome Street between Wooster and West Broadway
East Village Bodega: 325 Bowery at 2nd
