There are two things I love in this world. Target and Ulta.

Target of course fills the empty voids in my life with reasonably priced candles, home decor, and clothes. And Ulta helps me to look like a put-together somewhat attractive human. At least on the days I have the energy to slather on a full face of make-up.

Currently, Maine has five Target locations: Augusta, Bangor, Biddeford, South Portland, Topsham. And it has 3 Ulta locations: Augusta, Bangor, and South Portland.


Target announced in a press release yesterday that the two companies have started a partnership for a 1,000 square foot "shop-in-shop" concept. Similar to the mini Sephora found in JC Penny in The Maine Mall which is also where the only Sephora in Maine is located.


At first, there will be 100 Target locations with the Ulta mini-shops inside with plans to grow significantly over time, according to the press release.

Specific locations have not been announced for the initial 100 stores yet. Fingers crossed for a Maine Target!
