Target is the ultimate store where you can walk in to buy just one thing and walk out with a carriage full of things you didn’t need. When you ask the average consumer why they shop at Target stores, you’ll get a variety of answers but the most common one is “you can find absolutely anything at a Target store.” Because of this, there are up to 50 stores in the state of Massachusetts. From Hadley and Lanesborough to Boston and Lowell and Kingston Massachusetts and beyond. There is a Target store in every corner of the state. And we have done the research to find out which ones reign supreme.

Here’s how we did the research. We looked up every Target store in the state by location. We then looked at google ratings by its customers. We simply rank the top 20 by rating out of 5 stars and in the event of a tie, the store with the highest number of reviews will win.

Target’s motto is “Expect More. Pay Less.” For the most part, people shop at Target to grab anything from baby products to household items to groceries. Not every Target has a grocery section but many do. Either way, we can bet money that if you’re planning on going to a Target store for one item, you’ll come out with at least two.

So where does the Target store in your neighborhood rank? Get ready because we have taken the top 20 stores in Massachusetts and heavily dissected them (in other words, taken their ratings and put them in order) so you can decide which one you’d like to waste your time in. Or, so you can celebrate that your Target store is the best in the state. Let us know if you agree with these rankings. Happy shopping!

  • #20.) 4165 Washington St, Roslindale, MA

    The impression of this location is that it’s a small satellite type of store in a more busy plaza…not a stand alone location. From the looks of the reviews, it’s definitely a smaller Target but customers seem to be able to find everything they need when they go. Customer service seems to be top notch as there are numerous reviews about how customers have had employees help them find items. “Good experience, prices in line with other stores in area.”

  • #19.) 81 Taunton Depot Dr, Taunton, MA

    So this location got a pretty passionate response from one of our listeners on Facebook. Kim Conrod wrote: “How did taunton place higher than easton? I can never find what I’m looking for in taunton – easton for the win lol.” The one consistent complaint I did see and is backed up by this photo is clothes being thrown all over the floor in the dressing rooms. I found this video however, that actually shows you what happens to the clothes in the dressing rooms at Target AFTER they’re tried on.




  • #18.) 101 Commerce Way, Woburn, MA

    One of Target’s biggest locations, however after reading many reviews it seems as if it’s not the cleanliest. Many customers have recently complained about messes and clothes being thrown around. Another consistent fact according to customers about this location is that the stores are very much bare and not properly stocked. Although with a 4.1 rating, there are a lot of positives including its size.

  • #16.) 70 Worcester-Providence Turnpike #100, Millbury, MA

    “Cashier was very helpful when I was struggling with the Target app at checkout.”

    This location is praised by many because of its close proximity to the Solomon Pond Mall. There are four self check outs and a friendly staff willing to help if you need it. Two particular employees, Eric and Andrea, were named specifically for their outstanding service. Look for them if you go! Also, a few customer reviews mentioned how easy it was to order from their app, so here is a run down of exactly how to do just that.

    One of the bigger Target stores in Massachusetts, the Revere location has both a Starbucks and a Pizza Hut inside. Beware however, as one customer complaint is that several of the shopping carts bump and have bum wheels. While most of the reviews are positive, this location is not free of controversy however.

  • #6.) 1205 S Washington St, North Attleborough, MA

    Despite this particular location being #6 in the state, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention our listener Siobhan McCann’s comment: “People 💩 in the aisles in North Attleboro, I guess they weren’t in that day for a review.” Regardless of that, this location’s reviews talked a lot about ordering online. According to Barbara: “Since Covid made shopping harder for all , it was a great experience to shop curbside.”

  • #4.) 655 Cheshire Rd, Lanesborough, MA

    This location offers curbside pickup and ordering online and the most recent reviews rave about just that. While it is located in somewhat of an abandoned shopping mall, the Target offers everything you need. Be careful as we saw a few reviews saying they don’t update their stock online and when they went to the store, the item was not available.

They took style, price and function into account when helping me pick out and purchases eye wear. Sam was very informative and pleasant during purchase.”
