Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in East Kendall,
Florida, in October 2013. The new store will be part of a shopping center
located on SW 104th Street and Dixie Highway. To date, Target has announced
plans to open eighteen Target stores in 2013.

The new store will be approximately 173,000 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.

This location will employ between 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

“Target is excited to open our new store in October. We look forward to
deepening our commitment to South Florida, our guests and team members there,”
said Sid Keswani, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Southern
region. “The new location will allow us to better serve our guests and further
enhance their shopping experience.”

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.
