Seems these days store closings are left and right. Well, this one hits every person who loves that big red target in the heart.

On February 3rd, two Illinois Targets are set to close their doors for good. A total of 12 stores will be closing across the US. According to USA Today, "Target is facing tremendous pressure from online merchants like Amazon." The Stores being closed in Illinois are Romeoville and Matteson.

Nothing to close to home. Pretty sure I keep both of our local Targets in operation anyways from my addiction to their stores, so I do not expect to see them on a list anytime soon.

The complete list of stores is below.

  • Eastland in Harper Woods, Mich.
  • Hutchinson, Kans.
  • Benton Harbor, Mich.
  • Fergus Falls, Minn.
  • Hastings, Minn.
  • Macon, Ga.
  • Slidell, La.
  • Lauderhill, Fla.
  • Matteson, Ill.
  • Romeoville, Ill.
  • Baltimore West
  • San Antonio Far East
