Target is heading to King of Prussia, Pa.
The Valley Forge Shopping Center on West DeKalb Pike is adding Target to its tenant roster July 2014, making it the first Target store in the city of King of Prussia.
The King of Prussia store will be approximately 165,000 sq. ft. and will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks, Target Optical and Target Pharmacy.
The King of Prussia location will employ approximately 200-250 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates will be able to apply and interview for open 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.
“Pennsylvania continues to be a strong market for Target, and we’re eager to expand our presence in the state this year,” said Samir Shah, Target’s SVP of stores, northeast. “We look forward to bringing our ‘Expect More. Pay Less.’ brand promise and strong legacy of giving back to the community to King of Prussia residents.”
The new store will start a local grant program, contribute to the United Way and donate food to a Feeding America member or approved agency.
