Target notifies state of Cordova closure, 173 workers affected

The closure of Target’s Cordova store could affect up to 173 employees, according to a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) Act notice filed with the state of Tennessee.

On Oct. 30, the Minneapolis-based retailer confirmed its 475 N. Germantown Parkway location would be one of six stores nationwide that will shut down this February. A Target spokesperson cited several years of declining profitability as a reason behind the closure.

Moving forward, Target is expected to sell the 174,000-square-foot building, a process many local commercial real estate experts believe won’t take very long.

The property was last appraised for north of $12 million, according to the Shelby County Assessor’s latest estimates.
