MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in Baltimore in October 2013. The new store, located on Boston Street, will be part of the Canton Crossing Shopping Center. To date, Target has announced plans to open fourteen Target stores in 2013.
The Baltimore East store will be approximately 135,000 square feet, and will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, the store will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods to further enhance guests' shopping experience.
The Baltimore East location will employ approximately 200 team members.

Candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located in all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.
"Target is pleased to open its third store in the Baltimore community," said Samir Shah, Target's senior vice president of stores in the Eastern region. "Maryland continues to be a great market for Target, and we are committed to being a good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests and the Baltimore community."
Target creates strong partnerships with local organizations in all of the communities where the company does business through Target's community giving programs. This store will start a local grant program, contribute to the United Way and donate food to a Feeding America member, or approved agency. Target also encourages team members to volunteer their time to serve the needs of their community.
