Don’t Count On A Target In Findlay

4/29/14 – 5:31 A.M.

If you’re hoping for a Target store to locate in Findlay anytime soon, you might not want to hold your breath. Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development Director Tony Iriti says it probably won’t happen for a long time.

Speaking at the Rotary Club meeting Monday, Iriti said household income is an issue. As a smaller city, Findlay has fewer homes bringing in more than $50,000 a year. Being within 40 miles of the Target in Rossford isn’t helping anything either.

Iriti says Marathon’s expansion promises to help numbers in the future. But Target officials are more concerned with the amount of retail business historically done in Findlay.
