- 517 E. 117th St., Harlem

Target said it invested in other strategies to reduce theft and protect its workers before making the decision to close this location.
- 4535 University Way NE, Seattle
- 1448 NW Market St., Suite 100, Seattle
These two Seattle locations were closed due to theft and crime concerns, according to Target. However, the retailer continues to operate 22 other locations in the metro area.

- 7501 Baltimore Ave., College Park

A typical Target store has closer to 130,000 square feet of retail space.
