Target will open its 47th Massachusetts store at the Cape Cod Mall next year, according to a statement from the national retailer.

The company has signed a lease with the Simon Property Group for the 80,000 square foot store, which will open in 2019.  The Hyannis store is considered a "small format" Target.  

The store's quick-trip shopping experience will feature:

  • An assortment of kids products, including basics, apparel and toys
  • A curated selection of home décor with a variety of seasonal items
  • Beach and vacation essentials
  • Services such as a Starbucks and an Order Pickup counter – giving guests the added security of buying online and picking up in a store, where 95 percent of orders are ready in less than an hour.

Target's Hyannis location will hire up to 100 workers at a minimum hourly wage of $12. The company also says it is committed to increasing its hourly wage to $15 by the end of 2020. Of course, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' "Grand Bargain" has already taken care of that with the scheduled increase of the "minimum wage already signed by governor.

"Target continues to receive a warm reception from our guests throughout Massachusetts, and we look forward to providing a one-of-a-kind shopping experience on the Cape," Mark Schindele, senior vice president, Properties, Target, said in a statement. "With a range of products across kids, home, beach and seasonal items, and everyday essentials, this store's assortment and overall experience are designed especially for Cape Cod residents and seasonal visitors." welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
