NORTH BAY – Target Corp.’s decision to close all its gardening departments will include five of the nine stores in the North Bay.
The Minneapolis-based department store retailer plans to close all 262 garden centers, which are mostly located at stores in California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada, by late September, according to a spokeswoman.
“This is no longer a profitable business for us and does not provide significant value to our guests,” Jenna Reck said.
That pending garden center closure includes Target stores in Rohnert Park, Vintage Oaks Shopping Center in Novato, South Napa Marketplace in south Napa, Vallejo Corners in Vallejo and Fairfield Center in Fairfield.
Gardening items except for live plants will be sold throughout this year and will be carried as a seasonal item going forward, Ms. Reck said.
