The new Target store at Cottonwood Mall in Chilliwack is scheduled to open in the winter of 2013, the company said Friday.

But people hoping to work at the store are already being invited to find out more about the company.

Target recently bought the leases at several Zellers locations across Canada. The Zellers store at Cottonwood is one of those stores, the company confirmed.

Target plans to open 125 to 135 stores in Canada, the majority of which will open in 2013. 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.”

Eighteen Target stores will open in B.C. in early 2013. Included in the list are eight planned Target stores in the Lower Mainland, in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge and Surrey.

This Chilliwack location is scheduled to open in the winter of 2013. The store will employ approximately 150-200 people and hiring will begin in 2013. Chilliwack residents interested in working for Target can find out more by visiting www.Target.ca/careers.
