Target closures and branding conversions
Three Target Country stores in Gippsland will close next year and another two will convert to K Mart after Wesfarmers' review of its underperforming retail chain. Two other stores in the region will remain open under the Target brand.
Marked to close in early to mid 2021 are the Target Country stores at Bairnsdale, Traralgon and Warragul.
Converting to K Mart early next year are the Target Country stores at Lakes Entrance and Leongatha.
Meanwhile Target stores at Sale and Wonthaggi will continue to trade as they are.
