I love writing about actual do-able things, accessible activities. Even in social distancing there are things we can enjoy doing. If you hit the like button it lets me know what you like reading!

No-one has been told yet of all the Target and Target Country stores that are tagged for closure, which may be so that staff don't "hear it on the street" first. However, I have it from a reputable source that South Australia will lose the Pasadena Target as soon as May 30th, and that staff members were informed of this back in January. In New South Wales, Campbelltown Target is set to close on July 4th, and staff were notified in March. In Western Australia, the Mandurah Target will close on August 1st, and staff were informed of this in January. Other Target and Target Country stores will close, but as of May 22, 2020, we have not yet been told which ones. The intention appears at this stage to be to convert many other Target stores into Kmart stores. Keep your ear to the ground for approaching news on that.

Meanwhile, I know from personal experience, that Target Online is alive and well, and shipping orders rapidly, in this era of staying home and living online. Target sells a vast array of useful things, from clothing and shoes to homewares, toys to electronics. Shopping online saves the bother of battling for a car park and then returning to find your car scratched by someone else. Shopping from home saves you going out in the rain, risking catching a cold, getting your shoes wet. Shopping for presents online makes sense when you probably can't visit loved ones (especially if they live interstate). Have a look around and see what takes your fancy!

Hi, it's the Target country store in Meadow Springs (in Mandurah) which is closing down. The Target store at Mandurah Forum shopping centre is staying open for now.

90% if not all of Targets items are made or come from China. Their range has always been crap, cheap plastic crap that doesn't last, clothing has changed since the 90s, quality just isn't there anymore. They keep jacking up prices of every day items yet the quality isn't there!! Australia! Time to wake up! Buy and support locals, support and help Australian farmers, producers and quality! Time to stop importing crap at 50% mark up - time to make and build our own stuff locally and help your country before sending our beautiful wool and minerals overseas for cheap, not only to get it made with terrible quality but at a mark up for us - why??? - Our local farmers have the best wool and materials! Why send it to sweat shops for others to make when we can make it here, with our own resources and help create jobs here - not over there! Wouldn't you love to buy 100% Aussie Made things? Help Australia by staying true blue and actually give a shit. Target copied kmart, cheap and nasty.. let's make way for Australian made and created businesses! We need change to happen before its too late.

Seriously People, everyone is banging on about reducing coal consumption.
Target, K-Mart, Coles, Officeworks, Bunnings are all underpinned from the sales of Wesfarmers Coal mining. The more you shop at Bunnings or K-Mart the cheaper Wesfarmers can produce coal. Shop local or shop at a retail only chain and you will be doing more for the environment than turning off lights and stuff.
