Disappointing sales and a housing market slump are prompting Target Corp. to scrap plans to build several new stores in the Chicago area.
The decision affects at least three communities, including Antioch, where Target was one of three anchor stores planned for the Antioch Marketplace project.
"Antioch Marketplace is in flux right now," said Mayor Dorothy Larson. "I can't speculate if the project will move forward. I would certainly hope so."
Minneapolis-based Target has also shelved plans for new stores in Morris and on Ashland Avenue in Chicago.
