Uptown is losing another business, and this one hits a little closer to home.
Minneapolis-based Target announced Monday that it will close its small-format store in the south Minneapolis neighborhood because of a lack of foot traffic.
Target joins a growing list of national and local retailers that have left the area in the past few years following the COVID-19 pandemic and damage from riots in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd.
The store, between West Lake Street and Lagoon Avenue on S. Fremont Avenue, will close May 13.
“The decision to close one of our stores isn’t something we take lightly,” said Joshua Thomas, a Target spokesman. “It’s an action we take only after multiple years of working to improve performance. That is the case for our Uptown store. … We value the team members at the Uptown store, and they will be offered the opportunity to work at nearby Target locations.”
