All that we know is that Target will open at 603 Center Street in Auburn and they were picked after looking at a few factors. They decided that Auburn would be a great place for a Target. Of course it would be. It's going to be a 105,000 square foot Target extravaganza. They will have more details closer to the opening about exactly what they will offer.

K-Mart held that address for almost 40 years, but just couldn't hold on. It's not because of the pandemic, it's because of the times. This will be the 6th location for Target, the others being in Augusta, Topsham, South Portland, Biddeford and Bangor.
