- May 10, 2012
Target Corp. plans to open a store in the Merrifield area of Fairfax County in October. The Minneapolis-based retailer said in a press release that it will open 19 stores this year, including a Virginia Beach location also scheduled to open in October.
The Merrifield store will be located in the Mosaic at Merrifield, a 31-acre, mixed-use development that will also include residences, office buildings, a movie theatre, hotel and two parks. The 163,000-square-foot store will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods. It will employ more than 200 people.
“Target is excited to open its first store in Merrifield,” said Samir Shah, Target’s senior vice president of East Coast stores. The company will host job fairs about two months prior to the store’s opening, where people can apply and interview for positions.
