A major U.S. retailer on target to open in Vernon in the spring of 2013 is bringing upwards of 200 jobs to town.
The Target Corporation has confirmed that the Village Green Centre in Vernon will be home to a future Target location, taking over Zellers. Vernon will be one of the first Canadian locations in the company’s plans to open 125 to 135 Target stores within its northern neighbour’s boundaries.
The Vernon location, scheduled to open in spring 2013, will employ approximately 150 to 200 team members and hiring for store team members will begin this year.
Canadians interested in working for Target are encouraged to visit www.Target.ca/careers to learn more about job opportunities.
Approximately $10 million to $11 million will be invested to remodel each facility in order to bring the full Target brand experience to Canadian communities.
Target purchased the leasehold interest in the Village Green Mall site, which is currently operated by Zellers Inc.
