Target prepares for grand opening at new location

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) –The new Target on Highway 544 will have the usual features found inside of the retailer spread over 135 thousand sq. feet.

Target teams members are working around the clock filling up empty shelves and prepping the store for its big opening next week. 

So far, the store's team leader, Danielle Flores, says everything is seems to be going according to plan and next Tuesday it will officially be open to the public. The new store will feature a pharmacy, Starbucks, café, photo lab and grocery section.

So far 175 employees have been hired to run the mega store and Flores says they're not done bringing in more team members. There are a variety of positions left to be filled, both full time and part time. Flores says people can go to the store and apply in person or online at Target.com.

Construction for target at the Sayebrook Town Center broke ground about a year ago. Steve Alger, Vice President of Development for Jackson Companies, the center's developer, says stores like Marshalls and Target have a reputation for reeling in high traffic.

Once the stores open, Alger estimates at least a thousand car trips to the center a day. According to Alger, Jackson Companies is working on deals that will bring in three retailers to the vacant lot that sits across the parking lot. They're not ready to release names, but Alger says they will be new to the South Strand.

Some Flores says will be good for everyone in town. "We're really excited about the shopping center and about the stores that are going to be here with us. I think they're going to help bring business to this part of Myrtle Beach."

Marshalls is set to open Aug. 2 and Petco will open on Sept. 21.
