National retailer Target to open first Vermont store in 2018

Target Is Coming To Vermont October 2018

Vermont's first store is part of an effort by the retailer to open more "small-format stores" created to serve communities near college campuses and in urban areas.

"Vermont has a dynamic retail market and we are very pleased to welcome Target to the state, further strengthening this sector and enhancing retail options for our consumers", said Vermont Gov. Phil Scott.

This opposition didn't start today, following the announcement. But an attempt to bring a location to Vermont fell through in 2012 when some locals questioned the size of the store, the Burlington Free Press reports; some Vermonters don't like the idea of adding another big-box store to the state, where Walmart, Kmart, Home Depot, and others already have locations.

After Burlington expressed some interest in 2015, the company finally succeeded in establishing a store in the state.

"While we may be the last state to join the Target family, we know they will quickly become part of the Vermont community, and look forward to seeing its long-term success in the state", he said in the company's press release.

The store is expected to employ 75 people.

And he wasn't the only one.
