Ghostboxes: What's left behind when Target shuts its doors?

Feb 5, 2014
Best Buy, Sears, Kmart have closed hundreds of stores since 2011 -- and Target's not far behind. But shuttering big-box stores has unanticipated consequences
Target customers protest the closing of their local store this past Saturday in Trotwood, Ohio.  Residents organized a "shop-in" to display the town's buying power.  But Target plans to close this store, and 7 others across the country, on May 3rd.
