The City of San Fernando has received confirmation that the Target Corporation has executed a lease with the owner of 12920 Foothill Boulevard in San Fernando to open a store there, City Manager Nick Kimball said in a released statement.
The retail chain plans to develop the 103,000 square foot site, formerly occupied by Sam’s Club, into a Target store over the next few years.
The property has been vacant since Sam’s Club closed its doors in January 2018.
“The site has been underutilized since Sam’s Club [closed],” Kimball said. “The City is looking forward to working with the new property owner and Target to re-energize that shopping center with one of the nation’s top retail stores.”
“We are excited to have Target as part of the City of San Fernando,” Mayor Mary Mendoza said. “The opening of this store will ensure San Fernando residents have a place to shop locally and will help support economic development in the City.”
Kimball said City officials will be working with the property owner and Target’s Development Team in the coming months to secure the proper permits and site improvement approvals.
