Target plans to open a store in Danbury. A 126,000 square-foot 2-level Target store will open in the former Sears site at the Danbury Mall, a Macerich Property. There is no timeline for when the store would open. Macerich President Ed Coppola says Target coming to Danbury is the latest anchor-replacement success. He added that with a merchandise mix and attractive demographics surrounding Danbury Fair, it's a great match. Danbury Fair is one of New England's largest shopping destinations, anchored by JCPenney, Macy's, DICK's Sporting Goods and Primark, and with retailers and restaurants including Golf Lounge 18, Barbarie's Grille and over 180 other shops.
