January 14, 2013
– Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in Huntington, N.Y. in October 2013. The new store will be located near the intersection of Jericho Turnpike and New York Avenue. To date, Target has announced plans to open seventeen Target stores in 2013.
The Huntington store will be approximately 150,000 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 Huntington location will employ approximately 250 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 excited to expand its presence in New York in 2013,” said Samir Shah, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Eastern region. “We are committed to being a good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests and the Huntington 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.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) serves guests at 1,782 stores across the United States and at Target.com. The company plans to open its first stores in Canada in 2013. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $4 million a week.
