Target will be starting the process of hiring 160 people next week, as it prepares to open its first store on the Upper West Side.
The new Target is opening “later this fall” at 1865 Broadway between 61st and 62nd Streets, at the bottom of a luxury building that replaced the American Bible Society. The 34,000-square-foot store will be an “urban concept” store that’s smaller than traditional suburban locations. The company did not respond to a question about when exactly the new store will open.
“Interested candidates are encouraged to apply at Target.com/careers ahead of job fairs held August 26-27 at Target Studio (521 West 25th Street),” a press release about the hiring event said.
