Target is closing a store in the region after the holidays.

Minneapolis-based Target will close a dozen stores nationwide in an effort to “refine its portfolio of stores,” according to a post yesterday by USA Today.

One of the stores scheduled to close is in Benton Harbor, at 960 Fairplain Dr.

The retailer is also closing a store in the Detroit area: its Eastland Center store in Harper Woods.

All stores will remain open through the holiday season, shutting down on Feb. 3.

Target also said that by the end of 2017, it will have opened 32 new stores, the USA Today reports.

Erin Conroy, a Target spokesperson, said the decision to close stores “was not made lightly,” according to the USA Today.

“We have a rigorous process in place to evaluate the performance of every store on an annual basis, closing or re-locating underperforming locations as needed," Conroy said.
