Update: The Voice has received this email from a Target spokesperson confirming the company’s plans for an 80,000 sq. foot store..
“I can confirm Target has plans to open a store in Kill Devil Hills. We’re excited to bring an easy, safe and convenient shopping experience to new guests in the community with this new Target store. Located at 1091 N. Croatan Hwy, the store will be approximately 80,000 square feet. As we get closer to opening the store, we’ll have more specific details to share – including how the shopping experience will be tailored to serve local guests and the grand opening date.”
Shane Collins from the OBX Island Guys Real Estate group, has confirmed this news about the Kmart site, which was posted on Island Guys Facebook page today. Here is the post.
Breaking News….It’s been hard keeping lips sealed, but it’s now public news as contracts are signed…TARGET is officially coming to the Outer Banks at the former Kmart Site. It will be torn down and redesigned. While the Outer Banks continues to change, I feel like this will be a welcome storefront and another jobs boost to our community. Development along our shores is always a Catch 22 and a tough pill to swallow for folks like me that have spent their entire lives here. Ultimately, it’s not the 70’s and 80’s anymore, and if it increases our community rating, helps with jobs and infrastructure, and keeps us from driving to VA I am all for it.
