MINNEAPOLIS--(Business Wire)--
Target is pleased to announce plans to open a new store in Cary, N.C., in March
2014. The new store, located on O`Kelly Chapel Road, will be part of the
Parkside Town Commons shopping center. This will be the second Target store in
Cary. 

The Cary West 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, as well as a Starbucks and a
Target Pharmacy, to further enhance guests` shopping experience. 

The Cary West location will employ approximately 200 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 Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks
located in all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store
opening. 

"Target is very excited to bring another store to the city of Cary," said Samir
Shah, Target`s senior vice president of stores in the Eastern region. "We are
committed to providing high-quality merchandise at a great value for our guests
and continuing our reputation as a good neighbor in the Cary 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.
