Target Announces Store Closures: See the Complete List

Target, grappling with escalating theft and “organized retail crime,” is set to close nine outlets across four states. The retail giant has been facing significant challenges in managing the increasing incidents of theft, which have had a considerable impact on their operations and profitability.

Despite their efforts to combat these issues by “adding more security team members, using third-party guard services, and implementing theft-deterrent tools,” the challenges with crime persisted. The measures taken have not been sufficient to curtail the rise in theft-related incidents, leading to the difficult decision to shut down certain locations.

Below are the affected markets along with the remaining stores and employment data:

Target remains committed to serving their customers and supporting their employees, even as they navigate these complex issues.

To further bolster security, Target is implementing measures such as locking cases for certain merchandise and partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Investigations division.

“While we will continue to make meaningful investments throughout our business, we cannot solve this issue on our own,” the firm noted, highlighting the need for broader collaboration and community efforts to address these challenges effectively.
