Target is pleased to announce that it will open a new store in Denver in July 2013. The Tamarac Square Target will be approximately 135,000 square feet and will be located at the corner of East Hampden Avenue and South Tamarac Drive. To date, Target has announced plans to open 11 U.S. Target stores in 2013. The new Tamarac Square location will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, the store will feature an expanded food selection including an assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks and pharmacy, to further enhance guests’ shopping experience. “We are very excited to bring another Target to the great city of Denver,” said Mark Everett, group director of stores. “This new Target will bring approximately 200 new jobs to the Denver area, adding to the thousands of team members already working at more than 40 stores throughout the state of Colorado.” The new store will host a job fair approximately two months prior to the 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. In 2011, Target contributed more than $1.4 million to support the Denver-area community. Target’s Take Charge of Education program, which lets guests allocate one percent of their Target REDCard and Target Check Card purchases to a K-12 school of their choice, has benefitted numerous schools within the Denver community. Target is a proud sponsor of numerous educational and cultural grant programs throughout the state, including the recent School Library Makeover at Lasley Elementary School and Target Field Trip grants given to 47 local schools. Target recently partnered with the Colorado Reading Corps, a statewide initiative to ensure that all children in the state are reading at grade level or higher by third grade.
