New Target Store Coming to Portland This Summer: Here is The Location

By the end of summer, Portland, Texas, will welcome a new 128,000-square-foot Target store. This will be the first Target in Portland. Currently, the closest Target is in nearby Corpus Christi.

Portland’s new Target is part of the $100 million mixed-use development called Oliver’s Way. The new development will also feature multiple big-name restaurants and businesses. Oliver’s Way is located at the northeast corner of the Highway 181 and Broadway Boulevard intersection. It is in the sparsely developed northern part of the San Patricio County city, home to approximately 23,000 people.

This is the first major development at this location, which was previously farmland. Historical aerial images from the 1950s confirm this, showing only Highway 181. The nearby homes and Broadway Boulevard appeared in the 1990s and early 2000s, including a nearby Walmart store. The biggest retailer in the country will now experience tough competition from its retail rival in Portland.

No official opening date is listed on Target’s website, but other sources mention the end of summer 2024.
