Target plans to hire 200 for Merrifield store
May '12
Target Corporation is pleased to announce the opening of a new store in Merrifield, Va. in October 2012. The company plans to open 19 stores in 2012, including a Virginia Beach location which is also scheduled to open in October.

The Merrifield store will be located in the Mosaic at Merrifield, a 31-acre development that will also include residences, office buildings, a movie theatre, hotel and two parks. The new store will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, it will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods to further enhance guests' experience. The 163,000 square foot store will employ more than 200 team members.

“Target is excited to open its first store in Merrifield,” said Samir Shah, Target's senior vice president of East Coast stores. “We are committed to being a good neighbor to the Merrifield and surrounding Virginia communities, and developing long-lasting relationships with guests.”

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 at all Target stores in July.

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.
