Target exit ensures Kmart coming to the Clarence
KMART is coming.
The announcement by retail giant Wesfarmers yesterday that many of its Target and Target Country stores would close or be converted into Kmart had been met with shock and anticipation.
And late last night the full list of store 53 store closures and 53 conversions were released, revealing Yamba Target, located in Yamba Fair, would become a Kmart early next year.
According to a business update on the Target website, all staff currently working in stores scheduled for conversion will receive an offer of employment from Kmart.
The Grafton store’s omission from either list ensures the store will continue to operate as a Target for the time being, however the company have made it clear this was under continued review.
“The network will continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis to support our transition to a smaller, more focused and more optimised business,” the statement read.
