Here Are The 13 Target Stores Closing In January

For the second time this year, Target is closing underperforming stores. But unlike that first round of closures, which was focused on the retailer’s flagging Canadian operations, this time the shuttered stores are all stateside.

The big box retailer confirmed today that it would close 13 stores on Jan. 30, CBS News reports.

“The decision to close a Target store is not made lightly,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement to CBS News. “We typically decide to close a store after careful consideration of the long-term financial performance of a particular location.”

Employees at the stores are being offered the option to transfer to another location.

The following 13 stores are being closed:
• Austin North East in Austin, TX
• Suncoast Pasco County in Odessa, FL
• Casa Grande, AZ
• Victorville, CA
• East Flint in Flint, MI
• Columbus Southwest in Columbus, OH
• Springfield, OH
• Northridge in Milwaukee, WI
• Superior, WI
• New Ulm, MN
• Ottumwa, IA
• Anderson, IN
• Dixie Highway in Louisville, KY

The U.S.-based closures come 11 months after Target announced it would shutter all 133 stores operating in Canada. The retailer said at the time that it had decided to leave our northern neighbor because there just was no way to make Target Canada profitable.
