These Target stores are set to close in October: Here’s the full list

Citing an abundance of theft and “organized retail crime” in many of its stores, Target announced earlier this week that it will close nine crime-prone locations across four states — including one in NYC — effective Oct. 21.

“Before making this decision, we invested heavily in strategies to prevent and stop theft … such as adding more security team members, using third-party guard services, and implementing theft-deterrent tools across our business,” the company said in a statement. “Despite our efforts, unfortunately, we continue to face fundamental challenges to operating these stores safely and successfully.”

Target has announced a list of closures and remaining stores in various markets, including New York City, Seattle, San Francisco/Oakland, and Portland. The company has encouraged affected shoppers to shop at Target.com and stated that over 150 locations remain open in affected markets.

Target is also investing in security measures, locking cases for theft-prone merchandise, and partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Investigations division. The company acknowledges that it cannot solve the issue alone.
