Madison appears close to landing a Target.
During Monday night’s mayoral debate, incumbent Mary Hawkins Butler shared with those in attendance an email from a Target representative, who thanked her for working with the retail giant on securing acceptable elevations on a site for a store in the Jackson suburb.
Though details about the exact site are scarce, the Clarion-Ledger reported Tuesday that the agenda for the next meeting of the Madison Planning Commission, scheduled for May 13, includes an item for a Texas developer seeking a site plan for a shopping center on Grandview Boulevard that would include Target. Grandview already has several national big-box retailers, including Walmart, Lowe’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy and a Malco cinema.
Butler told the newspaper that more definitive plans would be unveiled by the end of this year.
A Madison location would be the third Target in the Jackson Metro Area, joining Flowood and Jackson.
