Target received hundreds of calls after a story ran in The Salt Lake Tribune about the job fair.

The 135,300-square-foot store, the first Target in West Valley City, anchors Highbury Centre, a commercial center at 2550 S. 5600 West, across the street from a WinCo grocery.

West Valley officials have said they worked for about a decade to lure a Target to Utah’s second largest city.

Meghan Mike, a spokeswoman for the Minneapolis-based retailer, said nine Targets, including the West Valley outlet, will open July 29.

Six will be full-sized stores in Capitola, Calif.; Inver Grove Heights, Minn.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Knoxville, Tenn.; and Brookfield, Wis. The other three are smaller format Targets in the urban cores of Los Angeles, Chicago and Seattle.

The urban stores are built into existing buildings and have a "unique feel," Mike said. The Chicago and Seattle sites will be multistory.

Target, which was founded in 1962, operates nearly 1,770 stores in 49 states, according to its website.
