Target store coming to Grass Valley

A Target store is coming to the McKnight Crossing Shopping Center in Grass Valley, according to Target’s corporate website. The future store is “located at 111 West McKnight Way, Grass Valley, CA, 95949,” according to a posting on Target’s corporate website.

The link is here.

Grass Valley has long been seeking “big box” stores to help boost its tax base.

Target, headquartered in Minneapolis, has 1,915 stores in the United States. About 75 percent of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a Target store.

The space now occupied by Kmart in the shopping center previously had been listed for lease. It is expected to close by yearend.

The next nearest Target is in Auburn.

  1. KMart has really downsized their space over the last couple of years. Hopefully Target will bring that space back filled with goods.

  2. Two edges on this sword. I’ll be happy about the employment of all the folks who will work there. But–There might be 2 or 3 items in any Target that are made in the USA. In Auburn, I only found Weber Grills that were made in the USA. The Levi’s were made in a country called Lesotho – that aint in Kansas.
