Target has begun hiring employees for its upcoming Lebanon store – the first in Lebanon County – but hasn’t yet announced an opening date.

The company has previously confirmed, on several occasions, that it intends to open the store this year.

“As we get closer to opening the store, we’ll have more specific details to share – including how the shopping experience will be tailored to serve local guests and the grand opening date,” said Target spokesperson Maddie Wojtalewicz in an email to LebTown.

The company has already begun hiring for the store, with jobs online for the 1745 Quentin Road location including Inbound Operations Team Leader, Security Specialist, Guest Advocate (Cashier or Front of Store Attendant), and Specialty Sales (Style, Beauty, or Tech).

The job listings offer no further details on when the store might open.

The 117,200-square-foot store sits on a 15.35-acre lot, surrounded by large surface parking lots. Target will be using the entire store.

The Kmart closed in early 2020 as part of a nationwide shuttering of the former big box behemoth, which had 2,486 stores at its peak in the 1990s. It was subsequently used as a Spirit Halloween location in fall 2020 and then served as the county’s mass vaccination site in early 2021.

The former Kmart customer service area was transformed into a waiting room for early arrivals and family members of vaccine recipients during early 2021 when the property became a county-run mass vaccination clinic.
