Target heads to Maui, Hawaii
Target plans to open a new store in the city of Kahulu — its first on the island of Maui in Hawaii — in March 2015. The store will be located on Hookele Street as part of the Pu‘unēnē Shopping Center.
The 140,000-sq.-ft. store will feature Target’s everyday essentials and exclusive brands along with a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks and a Target Pharmacy.
The Maui location will employ approximately 200 people. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates may apply and interview for open spots. 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 excited about our first store on the island of Maui,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s SVP of stores in the Western region. “Since opening our first store in Hawaii in 2009, we’ve created strong partnerships with the local community and delivered our ‘Expect More. Pay Less.’ brand promise to guests throughout the islands.”
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.
