Target closing stores

Target plans to close 13 stores throughout the United States as it continues to regroup and refocus itself.

The Minneapolis-based retailer says a decision to close a store usually follows several years of decreasing profitability. The retail giant plans to close the stores on Jan. 30, 2016.

Target was hurt by a massive credit-card breach before Christmas 2013 that sent shoppers temporarily fleeing. The company also botched a major expansion into Canada and pulled the plug on that earlier this year.

Layoffs in 2015 included 2,500 jobs, or about one-fifth of the workers in the company’s corporate offices in Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park.

Target provided the names of all 13 locations.  They are:

  1. Austin North East (Austin, Texas)
  2. Suncoast Pasco County (Odessa, Florida)
  3. Casa Grande, Arizona
  4. Victorville, California
  5. East Flint (Flint, Michigan)
  6. Columbus Southwest (Columbus, Ohio)
  7. Northridge (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
  8. Superior, Wisconsin
  9. Springfield, Ohio
  10. New Ulm, Minnesota
  11. Ottumwa, Iowa
  12. Anderson, Indiana
  13. Dixie Highway (Louisville, Kentucky)
