Ad On Target Center To Come Down

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A big ad on the side of the Minnesota Timberwolves’ arena that couldn’t be missed from the Twins’ ballpark is coming down.

But now it’s up to Target Corp. to decide what will replace the ad for Dakotas-based Sanford Health. When Target Corp. renewed naming rights to the Timberwolves arena in September, the retailer also gained access to that space.

The ad that’s on the side of Target Center drew criticism from the Twins and civic leaders when it appeared last year — just in time for the Twins’ playoff games.

Timberwolves president Chris Wright tells the Star Tribune the Sanford sign will be down Oct. 31.

Target Spokeswoman Jessica Carlson says the retailer is “continuing to evaluate that space.”
