Target Corp. is reportedly expanding its presence on New York’s Long Island.

The retailer plans to open an approximately 43,000-sq.ft. store in a combined space left vacant by two former tenants — Bed Bath & Beyond and H&M — in Bay Harbour Mall, in the town of Lawrence, reported Newsday. It also will open a location at Lake Success Shopping Center, in New Hyde Park. The 70,000-sq.-ft. New Hyde Park store will open in part of a former Sears store, according to the report. 

“We’re excited to bring an easy, convenient shopping experience to new guests in these communities with the new Target stores," Jill Lewis, a spokeswoman Target, told Newsday. She declined to say when the two stores will open or give more detailed specifics.
