GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The Grand Forks SuperTarget is getting a facelift. The store is one of just six nationwide chosen to undergo a remodel.

In a little more than two weeks, Target will begin to completely remodel the interior of the Grand Forks store and add new employees to the payroll.

You may not see any changes to the outside, but beginning March 12, the inside of Target will be completely revamped

"We were actually selected as one of the few Targets in the company to go through the remodel. We will get new merchandise initiatives, some new products and new designers to come with that," Target executive team leader Tyler Jans said. "The first thing our guests will see is our jewelry, accessories and shoes area will be transitioning, so they'll go from the tall stack gondolas flats to a more shoppable area for our guests."

You won't just see new products on the general merchandise side. The grocery department will also be updated

"The shelf space will greatly increase in our production area, so you'll see a wider selection of meats, bakery and an improved deli case," Jans said.

The remodel will be complete June 21 and the store will remain open the whole time. Entire sections will be moved around as changes are made, but not to fear, extra employees will be placed around the store to help you find what you're looking for.

To achieve that, Target plans to add 50 new employees to help with the changes, the majority of whom will remain on staff after the work is done.

"This also allows us to add some additional team members to our team specifically to focus on the overnight piece of the remodel while keeping the store open," Jans said. "We're excited about the remodel, so we're expecting a great turnout."

The Grand Forks Target was picked for the remodel because of its sales volume.

Target will a hiring event on Thursday and toward the end of March. In the mean time, you can apply online or in the store.
