Target expects to bring 70 new jobs to Center City Philadelphia this fall when it opens its 1900 Chestnut Street location in October. The company opened its first Center City store on the 1100 block of Chestnut last month. The new Target stores downtown are part of the chain’s “flexible format” type; they are about 15 percent of the size of a regular big-box target.

“Philadelphia is a priority market for Target, and we’re excited to build a talented team as we prepare for the October opening of our second flexible-format store downtown,” said Colleen Hastings, store leader of the Rittenhouse Square location.

The job fair, which began today at 9, is scheduled to run through Saturday at the Sonesta Hotel at 1800 Market Street.

  • Thursday, August 11th: 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Friday, August 12th: 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, August 13th: 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Those interested in working at Target are asked to apply online in advance.
