MINNEAPOLIS -- June 27, 2013
Target is pleased to announce plans to open new stores in Fresno and Rocklin,
Calif., in March 2014. The new Fresno store, located on North Riverside Drive,
will be part of the Marketplace at El Paseo shopping center. The new Rocklin
store, on the northwest corner of Interstate Highway 80 and Sierra College

offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to

prior to the new store openings, 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.

Rocklin,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the
Western region. “These stores will provide guests with the one-stop shopping
convenience they have come to expect from Target.”
