Earlier this week, the discount retailer began notifying employees at the 12 affected stores, which will close for good on February 3, 2018.
In a statement, Target said it will close a store after seeing several years of decreasing profitability.
These 12 Target stores are closing in February 2018:
- Lauderhill, Florida
- Macon, Georgia
- Hutchinson, Kansas
- Matteson, Illinois
- Romeoville, Illinois
- Slidell, Louisiana
- Baltimore (West), Maryland
- Harper Woods, Michigan (Eastland)
- Benton Harbor, Michigan
- Hastings, Minnesota
- Fergus Falls, Minnesota
- San Antonio (Far East), Texas
Although the company is shutting down 12 stores, it has opened 32 stores in 2017 and plans to open 35 stores in 2018, including small-format locations in dense urban and suburban areas.
Meanwhile, Target aims to remodel more than 1,000 of its 1,800 existing locations by the end of 2020.
