MINNEAPOLIS -- June 28, 2013

Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in San Jose, Calif.,
in March 2014. The new store, located near the intersection of Cottle Road and
Poughkeepsie Road, will be part of the Village Oaks shopping center. This will
be the 17th Target store in the San Jose area.

The San Jose South store will be approximately 140,000 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

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.

“We are excited to bring guests and team members the new San Jose South store
in March 2014,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president of stores in
the Western region. “This Target store will bring approximately 300 new jobs
to the San Jose area, and 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.
