A popular retail giant will open its first store on the Valley Isle.
Officials with Target say it plans to open a store in Kahului in March 2015.
The store will be located on Hookele Street as part of the Puunene Shopping Center.
The new location will be approximately 140,000 square feet and will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat, and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks and a Target Pharmacy.
“Target is excited about our first store on the island of Maui,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president 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.”
Target’s Maui store will employ approximately 200 team members. The company will host job fairs about two months prior to the new store opening.
Job seekers can also apply online at www.target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located in all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.
