Amid declining business, Minnesota-based Target plans to close its store in Commack come February, according to Newsday. The location, which opened in 2002, is one of six underperforming stores in five states. Target leases its 143,000-square-foot Commack South building. Competing retailers like ShopRite, HomeSense and Walmart opened nearby in recent years and significantly cut into Target’s business, according to the owner of the shopping center Commack-based Cosentino Realty Group. The landlord is in talks with several potential tenants about the Target space. Target has 18 stores on Long Island. [Newsday]
