Target Will Backfill Former Sears at Macerich’s Danbury Fair
Macerich is bringing a new Target store to Danbury Fair, in Connecticut’s Fairfield County. The 126,000-square-foot, two-level Target store will open in the former Sears site and will be the first in the city of Danbury.
Target recently opened a new, three-level store in the former JCPenney location at Macerich’s high-performing Kings Plaza in Brooklyn.
Santa Monica, CA-based Macerich has similarly replaced department store tenants with other retailers recently at Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, NY, Tysons Corner Center in McLean, VA and Fashion District Philadelphia as well as Chandler Fashion Center in Chandler, AZ.
Macerich president Ed Coppola said, “Target coming to Danbury Fair is the latest anchor-replacement success for Macerich’s A-quality portfolio of regional town centers. The terrific merchandise mix and attractive demographics surrounding Danbury Fair make this property a great match for all that Target has to offer.”
