The biggest and oldest retailer in Warrnambool's CBD is set to remain open.
There was uncertainty about the future of the city's Target on Friday, but it appears the 50-year-old store has not been affected by the widespread closures.
The Colac store, however, was included in the list of stores that will close - with the closure date listed as early to mid 2021.
Hamilton and Portland's stores will be rebranded as Kmart stores.
Wesfarmers announced on Friday it was rebranding a number of Target stores as Kmart stores, while a number of other outlets will be closed.
The Standard contacted Wesfarmers to ask whether the Warrnambool store would remain open, but was told that information was not yet available.
A spokeswoman said its priority was to contact stores and team members affected.
She said information on what was happening at specific stores should be available on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
The future of Target in Colac and Country stores in Hamilton and Portland is also uncertain.
Managing director of Wesfarmers Robert Scott said in the past decade, the Kmart outlets had been more successful than Target stores.
Mr Scott said there had been changes in customer shopping behaviour, with many choosing to shop online, and the coronavirus outbreak accelerated a review of the business.
"For some time now, the retail sector has seen significant structural change and disruption, and we expect this trend to continue. With the exception of Target, Wesfarmers' retail businesses are well-positioned to respond to the changes in consumer behaviour and competition associated with this disruption," Mr Scott said.
He said Wesfarmers and the Kmart Group would do everything they could to deploy Target staff where they could.
"We know this will be a tough day for our Target team and the Kmart Group and Wesfarmers will be doing everything we can to support them," Mr Scott said.
Kmart Group managing director Ian Bailey said the announced changes were part of the first phase of the Target review.
"Leveraging the strengths of the Kmart Group, we have made a significant effort to avoid store closures, retain our valued team members, keep serving our customers and supporting our suppliers. Unfortunately, the disruptive and competitive nature of the retail sector requires us to make some difficult decisions to ensure we have a viable Target business into the future, while continuing the strong growth of Kmart and Catch," Mr Bailey said
The plan is set to be put into action in the next 12 months.
Target opened in Warrnambool in 1970.
