Twenty new Target stores are scheduled to open this year including the company’s first five CityTarget locations and two other units at recently disclosed California locations.
Target said it would open a 135,000-sq.-ft. store in the California coastal town of Capitola, about an hour and a half south of San Francisco, in July. The store will be the company’s second location in Santa Cruz County.
Also slated to open at an unspecified date in 2012 is a 135,000-sq.-ft store about an hour north of San Francisco in the Sonoma County town of Petaluma. The store will be the company’s first in Petaluma, but third in Sonoma County.
Both stores are expected to employ 200 people.
