Target Plans Late-October Opening in Hyannis; Seeking Employees

HYANNIS – The national retailer Target will open its new store in Hyannis on October 20 and is holding a job fair this week in Hyannis.

Signs at the Cape Cod Mall, where Target will be occupying the space formally held by Sears, announced the opening date and the call for workers.

A hiring event will take place from August 19th to the 23rd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cape Cod Mall hiring center. Those interested in jobs can also apply at

Target officially announced plans last year to open a new 80,000-square-foot store.

 “Target’s a great example of just a terrific retailer that is wildly popular and providing new formats as well, in terms of fitting their merchandise offering to the community in which they serve,” said Les Morris last year, spokesperson for Simon Properties, which owns the mall on Route 132.

The Cape Cod Mall store will be the eighth of these formats in the state, offering many of the same categories customers expect in a full-size store.

The retailer said it will have a curated assortment of products to match the needs and preferences of the community.

“In terms of the mall, it is a tremendous announcement for us,” said Morris.

Founded in 1946, the Minneapolis-based corporation currently operates 1,829 stores throughout North America.

“Target continues to receive a warm reception from our guests throughout Massachusetts, and we look forward to providing a one-of-a-kind shopping experience on the Cape,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president, Properties, Target, previously.

“With a range of products across kids, home, beach and seasonal items, and everyday essentials, this store’s assortment and overall experience are designed especially for Cape Cod residents and seasonal visitors,” he said.

Retailers nationwide have been struggling in recent years as they face fierce competition from online sellers.
