REVEALED: Fate of Target Gatton amid nation-wide shutdown
THE countdown has begun for the arrival of Kmart in Gatton, following the planned closure of the Target branch in town.
In shock news to shoppers everywhere, Target has announced that upwards of seventy of their stores will be shutting down in the coming twelve months.
Some of these Targets will be converted into Kmarts, including the one in Gatton, which is expected to take place in early 2021.
The change is part of Target's move towards a smaller, more digital-focused business model, according to a statement released by target.
"These changes have been made following the first phase of a strategic review of the business. For some time, the Target business has needed to transform to a smaller, more focused and less complex business," the statement read.
"Whilst the coronavirus has accelerated this need, changes to the store network and operating model have been a focus for some time."
