Target to Open New Store in Ohio
Target announced plans to open a new store in Liberty Township, Ohio, in October 2014. The store will be located at 10600 Sawmill Parkway as part of the new shopping center The Shoppes at Wedgewood. To date, Target has announced plans to open 10 Target stores in 2014.
The Liberty Township store will be approximately 130,000 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 Liberty Township location will employ approximately 150 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.
"Southwestern Ohio is an important market for Target," said Samir Shah, Target's senior vice president of stores in the Eastern region. "We're thrilled to bring 150 new jobs to the community and service even more guests when our Liberty Township store opens this October."
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.
