MINNEAPOLIS -- December 12, 2012

Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in Lawton, Okla., in
July 2013. The new store will be located on Northwest 82nd Street at the
Lawton Marketplace shopping center. To date, Target has announced plans to
open thirteen Target stores in 2013.

The Lawton 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 Lawton location will employ approximately 200-250 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 or at
in-store kiosks located in all Target stores approximately three months prior
to the new store opening.

“Oklahoma continues to be a strong market for Target, and we’re excited to
expand our presence there in 2013,” said Sid Keswani, Target’s senior vice
president of stores in the Southern region. “Target is committed to being a
good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests and the
Lawton 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.
