Longtime OB Antique Mall to be Replaced by Target Express

Ocean Beach’s mega-antique mall, which is a bit of an antique itself, closed its doors Sunday to make way for a Target Express.The mall has been a fixture of Newport Avenue for several decades, and the news that a Target would be moving in sparked anti-corporation protest in the beach community last year. SDFD Girl’s Camp Starts Amid Discrimination Controversy “It is sad to see it go,” said shopper Jake Zamzow the day before the mall closed its doors. “I don’t think a lot of people want a Target to come in, but I understand the owner’s need to retire and not a lot of people have a lot of money to shell out and turn it into anything else.”Shoppers crowded the antique store to take advantage of discounts and grab those last minute treasures one last time. Hot Start to the Weekend “I have not seen this many people in there ever since I have been coming to this store,” Zamzow said. “I guess that’s good. Go out with a bang!”The landscape of Newport Avenue and Ocean Beach may be changing with the times, but the appreciation for the “good old days” still remains.
