As first reported by the Lebanon Daily News, Target is finally headed to Lebanon County.
The Minneapolis-based corporation acquired the former Kmart property at 1745 Quentin Road in North Cornwall Township through a $5 million transaction at the end of June. The 117,200 SF store sits on a 15.35 acre lot, surrounded by large surface parking lots.
That Kmart had closed in early 2020 as part of a nationwide shuttering of the former big box behemoth, which had 2,486 stores at its peak in the 90’s.
Under the financial machinations of hedge fund manager Eddie Lampert, Kmart’s real estate assets were put into a new firm, Seritage, along with the real estate assets of Sears. Seritage marketed the lot for lease (and later, sale) over 2020, and then secured Spirit Halloween as a tenant for fall 2021.
The property was subsequently used as a county-run mass vaccination site in early 2021.
Target had not released any additional details about the forthcoming store, such as a possible opening date, as of press time, but LebTown will be continuing to cover this story and sharing updates on Target’s now imminent arrival in Lebanon County. The Lebanon location is already listed on the company’s website, along with 45 other upcoming stores, including other new Pennsylvania locations in Downtown Pittsburgh, South Philadelphia, and Wynnewood.
