Some communities in the United States may soon find it a tad harder to find their closest Target. According to the superstore chain, 9 stores across several states are set to be closed due to safety issues.

America has a theft problem and now Target is taking action. Following a wild increase in smash and grab robberies; flat out looting, and other forms of theft Target is shuttering stores. The chain joins a few others across the country from coast-to-coast that are abandoning ship entirely.

Closures include:


  • 1690 Folsom St. in San Francisco
  • 2650 Broadway in Oakland
  • 4301 Century Blvd. in Pittsburg

New York

  • 517 E 117th St in New York City


  • 939 SW Morrison St. in Portland
  • 3031 SE Powell Blvd. in Portland
  • 4030 NE Halsey St. in Portland


  • 4535 University Way NE in Seattle
  • 1448 NW Market St, Ste 100 in Seattle

Each store will be shuttered as of October 21, CBS News reports. “[W]e cannot continue operating these stores because theft and organized retail crime are threatening the safety of our team and guests, and contributing to unsustainable business performance,” the company says in a statement. “We know that our stores serve an important role in their communities, but we can only be successful if the working and shopping environment is safe for all.”
