Disney (DIS) is closing more of its retail locations despite expanding the number of shop-in-shop locations inside Target stores.

The latest round of North American store closures from Disney comes as Target announced that it has further extended its partnership with the company, adding more than 100 shop-in-shop experiences in its stores that will roll out just in time for the holidays.

Target and Disney formed their venture together back in 2019, adding 60 shop-in-shops in select stores, with the first 40 sites opening back in October 2020. The Disney shop-in-shops offer more than 450 items, including 100 top Disney-themed toys and accessories that are not available at its retail stores.

Disney first announced back in March that it was closing at least 60 stores by early March in North America, with its latest round of closures not slated to occur on or before Sept. 15, according to its store locator.

At the time that Disney announced that it was first shuttering its brick-and-mortar retail stores, the company said it was looking to focus on its e-commerce business by offering a new assortment of products and higher-end merchandise on its website.

The closures announced in March accounted for one-third of Disney’s total portfolio of stores.

According to USA Today, only about two dozen stores will remain following the latest round of closures, which do not affect Disney’s global theme parks, its Target shop-in-shops or its other locations, which include third-party retailers and outlet locations.

The list of stores slated to close, according to the store locater on the Disney website, include:
