Jantzen Beach Target closing for four months

Target's Jantzen Beach location in Portland will close for four months as the company moves to a new building across the parking lot, which will feature fresh produce and meat.

"Target is excited to bring guests and team members a new, improved Portland store later this year," said Bryan Everett, senior vice president of stores in Target's northwest region. In the announcement, Target also reported that all "eligible team members" will be moved to nearby stores.

Target's move is part of a $50 million overhaul at Jantzen Beach that's expected to bring around 30 new stores and as many as 500 retail jobs. Edens, the Columbia, S.C.-based developer and mall owner, is reworking the mall into a 100,000-square-foot, U-shaped design that allows shoppers to access stores from the outside.
