MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Target says it will be closing 13 of its stores nationwide, including one in Minnesota, due to the stores’ falling profits.

The Minneapolis-based retailer confirmed the closings Wednesday, saying “the decision to close a Target store is not made lightly.”

The closings include stores in New Ulm, Minnesota, and Superior, Wisconsin.

“We typically decide to close a store after careful consideration of the long-term financial performance of a particular location. Typically, the decision to close a store is as a result of seeing several years of decreasing profitability. All eligible Target store team members are being offered the option to transfer to other Target stores,” a Target representative said.

Other closings include:

• Austin North East – Austin, Texas
• Suncoast Pasco County – Odessa, Florida
• Casa Grande, Ariz.
• Victorville, Calif.
• East Flint – Flint, Mich.
• Columbus Southwest – Columbus, Ohio
• Northridge – Milwaukee, Wisconsin
