Target relocated its Kirkwood Mall location in 2006, replacing the former Marshall Field’s space. It was rumored that the new store would be a Super Target encompassing two floors, but this never happened – possibly due to
Wal-Mart opening two Supercenters in Bismarck that same year.
Target first arrived during Kirkwood Mall’s 1980 expansion, along with JCPenney. It was Bismarck’s third modern-day discount store, after Kmart in 1971, and White Mart in 1979 (now closed).
Kirkwood Mall drastically changed Bismarck’s retail landscape when Paul Wachter opened it in April 1971 with original anchors Woolworths, Montgomery Wards, and Herbergers. It underwent a major addition in 1980 with two new anchors, Target and JCPenney.
