Target to Open New Store in Albuquerque, N.M.
The company plans to hire 200 local area team members
Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) is pleased to announce the opening of a new store in Albuquerque, N.M. in March 2013. The store will be located at the intersection of Northeast Louisiana Boulevard and Northeast Indian School Road.
The unique single-level store will be the first Target store of its kind in New Mexico, providing guests covered, ground-level parking, with the store elevated directly above. It 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’ experience. The 155,000 square-foot store will employ more than 200 team members.
“Target is excited to open a new store in Albuquerque,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Western region. “New Mexico continues to be a great market for Target. We are committed to being a good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests and the Albuquerque community.”
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 at all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.
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.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) serves guests at 1,764 stores across the United States and at Target.com. The company plans to open its first stores in Canada in 2013. In addition, the company operates a credit card segment that offers branded proprietary credit card products. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its income through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $3 million a week.
