A Target store in far northwest suburban West Dundee is among eight stores nationwide that will close this spring.

In a press statement, company officials said the store, at 999 W Main St, will close May 3, along with stores in Duluth, GA.; Memphis, Tenn., Orange Park, Fla.; Middletown, Ohio; and two in the Las Vegas, Nev., area.

Some of the employees at those stores -- "eligible" employees, according to the company -- will be offered an opportunity to transfer to another store.

The company said the closures come "after careful consideration of each location's financial performance."

They also come as the big box retailer deals with the expanding fallout of a massive data breach at its stores during the 2013 holiday season. Officials said as many as 110 million shoppers may have had their personal data compromised.
