Target opened nearly 30 new stores in the United States during the height of the pandemic in 2020 to 2021, taking its total to 1,926 last year.
“Target coming to Danbury Fair is the latest anchor-replacement success for Macerich’s A-quality portfolio of regional town centers,” said the company’s president, Ed Coppola.
In the past year, Primark took over vacated department store spaces at Macerich’s Green Acres Mall on Long Island, Tysons Corner Center in northern Virginia, and Fashion District Philadelphia.
Macerich has made similar replacements in the west, too. In May, the retail giant announced a Scheel’s All Sports will replace a former Nordstrom department store at Chandler Fashion Center in Arizona.
