The Minneapolis-based retailer says a decision to close a store usually follows several years of decreasing profitability. The retail giant plans to close the stores on Jan. 30, 2016.

Target was hurt by a massive credit-card breach before Christmas 2013 that sent shoppers temporarily fleeing. The company also botched a major expansion into Canada and pulled the plug on that earlier this year.

Layoffs in 2015 included 2,500 jobs, or about one-fifth of the workers in the company's corporate offices in Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park.

In an emailed statement, a Target spokeswoman wrote, "The decision to close a Target store is not made lightly. We typically decide to close a store after careful consideration of the long-term financial performance of a particular location."

"All eligible Target store team members are being offered the option to transfer to other Target stores," she added.

Here's the list of Target stores slated for closure:

  • Austin North East (Austin, Texas)
  • Suncoast Pasco County (Odessa, Florida)
  • Casa Grande, Arizona
  • Victorville, California
  • East Flint (Flint, Michigan)
  • Columbus Southwest (Columbus, Ohio)
  • Northridge (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
  • Superior, Wisconsin
  • Springfield, Ohio
  • New Ulm, Minnesota
  • Ottumwa, Iowa
  • Anderson, Indiana
  • Dixie Highway (Louisville, Kentucky)
