New Target at Essex Crossing is Plagued by Thefts
For shoplifters, the bullseye on the facade of 400 Grand Street is an invitation. Indeed, the small-format iteration of Target at Essex Crossing has become just that in the short month since it opened.
According to police sources at the 7th Precinct, there have been 42 reported thefts inside the second-floor retailer since the August 15 debut. Thieves allegedly made off with some big ticket items like televisions, but mostly household goods like beauty products, detergents, and toiletries. Not all perps were arrested, though.
Figures. Security inside this Target store seems non-existent.
