Disappointment Follows Clare Target Closure

thumbs down 2

Clare & Gilbert Valleys Council Mayor Wayne Thomas said he was very disappointed at the proposed closure of Clare’s Target Country store.

After being notified of the decision by letter, Mr Thomas has said, “The closure of this retail store will have a detrimental impact on our communities.”

“Having a store of this size and with such a wide variety of affordable goods has helped promote Clare as a regional centre, and its closure will not just impact local residents but will have far reaching effects.”

Port Augusta’s Target store will also be closing and reportedly converting to a Kmart, yet it has been confirmed that the Clare store was not flagged for a conversion to Kmart and would close next year.
