Target to close San Antonio store early next year

East SA store to close Feb. 3, 2018

SAN ANTONIO – The Target store in East San Antonio will close early next year, the company confirmed Wednesday.

The store located in the 7000 block of FM 78 will close its doors on Feb. 3, 2018.

“Our team is one of our greatest assets, and all eligible Target store team members are being offered the option to transfer to other Target stores,” the company stated.

Reports surfaced on Tuesday that the company would close 12 stores nationwide.

“This decision was not made lightly. We have a rigorous process in place to evaluate the performance of every store on an annual basis, closing or relocating underperforming locations as needed. Typically, a store is closed as a result of seeing several years of decreasing profitability,” the company said.
