2 Minnesota Target stores to close

- Two Target stores in Minnesota will be closing early next year, according to a Target spokesperson.

The Fergus Falls and Hastings locations will close on Feb. 3, 2018. The store employees are being given the option to transfer to other Target locations.

"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," said Erin Conroy, a Target spokesperson, in a email to Fox 9. "Typically, a store is closed as a result of seeing several years of decreasing profitability. These decisions are not made lightly."

This year, Target opened a total of 32 stores.
