In Minnesota, you go to Target, or Walmart, or Shopko, or something else. In Portland, you go to Fred MeyerÂ (wikipedia). Fred Meyer is a grocery store type Walmart but nicer type store. It usually has a Starbucks, electronics area, organic section, etc. There is one a few blocks from my apartment, and there are stores all over the city (all over the Northwest for that matter).
It is a refreshing change from running to Super Target every other day, or Walmart, or even Cub Foods or Coborns Grocery store.
