I didn't know about the Target on 20th and Callowhill until a few weeks ago.

I have yet to visit the new 5th/Spring Garden St. Target. I heard it's the largest Target in Philly.

How is the produce section? How about the meat section? Do they have a great selection of boxed teas? (I love Stash and Yogi.)

This has pretty much been established, but the NoLibs Target is the largest of the "urban format" Targets in the city (there are four others: 1100 block Chestnut, 19th and Chestnut, 20th and Callowhill, Broad St and Washington Ave) but not as large as the five full-size Targets in the city (City Ave and Monument Rd, Front St above Snyder Ave, Ridge Ave in Roxborough, Castor and Aramingo avenues in Port Richmond, Cottman and Bustleton avenues in the Northeast. A sixth, at Cheltenham and Ogontz avenues, lies just over the city line in Cheltenham Township).

I thought Walmart Neighborhood Markets were groceries only. The urban-format Targets offer a selection of items from across the spectrum of what Target sells (you won't find toys, bikes, home improvement stuff or furniture, but you will find a few things from most of the other departments plus fairly large food and drug sections (together, these account for half the space at the 1100 Chestnut store).

There's a Target in the Sprouts plaza off of Broad St.
Any more nearby I don't know about? lol.

Can we get another Target at, say, Broad and Locust?

What do you think these stores are, Wawas?

But I guess you could call these the convenience-store versions of big-box retail, so maybe.

Walmart Neighborhood Market is a grocery store but they do carry odds and ends of nonfoods as well, but not half a store of nonfood. There is a pharmacy and reasonably large assortment of drugstore type items,

My feeling exactly.
