A struggling national retailer will close or downsize a number of its stores over the next five years in a bid to improve sales and secure its future.
There are 305 Target shops across Australia whose futures are in question.
It follows Westfarmer’s decision to reduce its Target business by 20 per cent, either in size or through store closures.
Target has refused to comment on whether its Wagga store on Baylis Street will be among those affected by the 20 per cent reduction.
“It is business as usual for Target, and all stakeholders will be communicated with well in advance of any planned change to Target’s store network”, a Target spokesperson said.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with the communities where we operate and remain committed to providing our customers fashion that excites and quality that endures.
“As always, and with great respect, our team members will be communicated with first if there are any planned changes to our stores.”
