Kmart to Officially Close in October
Employees of the Kmart in Goleta were notified their store will be closing in October, possibly making way for a new Target location.
Last month an edhat reader reported the lease for the Kmart building at 6865 Hollister Ave had not been renewed.
The Goleta Design Review Board confirmed the Target Corporation had submitted conceptual design plans to take over the location. A public meeting will be held on July 24 to review their submission.
Reports of a liquidation sale is scheduled to begin later this month, but other details are unknown at this time.
