Target building import warehouse in Savannah
Mass market retailer Target said Wednesday it will build a two-million-square-foot import warehouse on the Savannah River near the Port of Savannah.
The import warehouse is being built at the Savannah River International Trade Park, four miles from the port's Garden City Terminal. Construction has already started and is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2007.
Target operates 41 stores in Georgia, including seven SuperTarget stores, and a 1.5 million-square-foot distribution center in Tifton. In January, Target said that it would build a distribution center in Midway, Ga. That facility is also under construction.
Minneapolis-based Target has 1,351 stores in 47 states nationwide.
