Target to hire 70,000 for holidays

New York — Target says it will hire more than 70,000 seasonal store workers during the busy holiday shopping season, about the same as it hired last year.

It also plans to hire an additional 7,500 people for its distribution facilities, which ship online orders and send products to stores.

The discount chain says it will hold hiring events at all of its 1,800 stores on Oct. 14 and 15. Candidates can also apply online.

Target Corp., based in Minneapolis, says existing employees will first get to choose which extra holiday hours they want to work.
