Store to hire approximately 200 new team members
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in Spokane, Wash., in July 2014. The new store, located on Regal Street, will be part of the Regal Plaza shopping center. This will be the third Target store in the Spokane area.
The Spokane South 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, as well as a Starbucks and a Target Pharmacy, to further enhance guests' shopping experience.
The Spokane South location will employ approximately 200 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates may apply and interview for open team member positions. 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 Spokane area," said Bryan Everett, Target's senior vice president of stores in the Midwest and Northwest regions. "Washington 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 Spokane 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.
