TARGET Stirling is closing its doors in June.

The national retailer confirmed its store at Stirling Central Shopping Centre on the corner of Victoria and Wanneroo Roads will close on June 22.

It was reported last year that Target planned to shut some of its Australian locations or rebrand them to Kmart to reduce the number of stores by 20 per cent over the next five years.

A spokeswoman thanked staff and shoppers for their support and directed people to its website.

“We are working hard to ensure our Stirling team members can join another Target store or Wesfarmers retail business convenient to them,” she said.

The nearest Target locations are in Morley and Innaloo.

The shopping centre was redeveloped in 2017 and is anchored by supermarket Woolworths.

Earlier this week Woolworths confirmed it would close about 30 underperforming Big W stores and two distribution centres over the next three years after increasing numbers of shoppers took their business online.

The supermarket giant, which said Monday will take a $370 million hit related to the closures in its full-year results, wouldn’t say which stores would close or how many jobs would go.
