New Target Store to Open in Lake Tahoe’s Village Center

The Raley’s in Tahoe Village Center, South Lake Tahoe, California, was temporarily closed due to the roof caving in from heavy snowfall. With the lease expiring in June 2023, a new retailer has been announced to take its place. Target, the retail giant, has listed a new 63,000-square-foot store on its website, scheduled to open in the same location.

This closed Raley’s will be turned into a Target store.

Raley’s, operating over 120 stores in California and Nevada, will make way for Target’s expansion. Tahoe Village Center, located on Lake Tahoe Blvd and within walking distance of the Nevada border, is a popular tourist destination. Visitors flock here for skiing at the nearby Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort and water activities on Lake Tahoe.
