Target also said it will hire 4,500 people for the season at its distribution and fulfillment centers, which supply products to its 1,816 stores and fulfill online orders.

The company had hired 7,500 workers to work at the centers last year as it required additional staffing for three new facilities. Target also said it had “streamlined operational processes” at the facilities this year, requiring lesser staffing.
