South Hills Village Target Opening in March

The store will employ more than 200 people.

The new Target at will open in March 2013.

The store, located at Village Drive and Washington Road, will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, it will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods to further enhance guests’ experience.

“Target is excited to open its first store in Upper St. Clair,” said Samir Shah, Target’s senior vice president of East Coast stores. “We are committed to being a good neighbor to the Upper St. Clair and surrounding Pennsylvania communities, and developing long-lasting relationships with our guests.”  

The 145,000 square-foot store will employ more than 200 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates may apply and interview for open team member positions. Candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located at all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.  

Target in June 2011. Representatives then estimated it would take 12 to 18 months for the store to open.

Why! Why! Why! It's like putting K Mart there.

USC rResident Looking forward to it comming, a nice place to shop. It is needed in our area.

It's going to be nice to not have to drive to Washington to buy Target-y things...but man. The traffic around the Village is going to get a LOT worse. I'll plan not to leave my house for most of December.

This is long overdue in our area. Target is awesome (and not like Kmart at all). It will be worth the increased traffic. I can't wait!!

Just wait until the Consol site is developed. Gridlock all day every day.

I assume that traffic will increase, but by how much is just a guessing game. Certainly, it's better to have a store like Target ( which is MUCH nicer than those dumpy K-Marts). than to continue to have that empty, sad-looking end of the mall remain.

I agree. And those complaining about traffic must completely have forgotten that there used to be a very large and successful department anchor store at that end of the mall. If you have an issue with traffic and parking... park by sears, there's almost never traffic there. Even less when dicks is gone. Of course, EVERYONE HAS to have that perfect food court parking spot.

As a former employee of the West Mifflin Target store, I may consider applying for a position at the South Hills Village location since it is much closer to where I live (with the added advantage of not having to travel through the construction zone at Brownsville/Curry Hollow/Broughton. It will be good to finally have that retail space occupied again.
Roger June 07, 2012 at 11:49 PM
I will not be visiting this store.
Judy June 08, 2012 at 12:33 AM
I love that this is finally being put to use. For those who don't like the idea of a Target going in there, what would you have rather seen?
B June 08, 2012 at 12:38 AM
The disillusioned will tell you that they think a Nordstrom should have gone there, fat chance.
Jim June 08, 2012 at 10:49 AM
Good...less traffic! Somehow, I think Target will survive without you Roger!
Roger June 08, 2012 at 11:59 AM
Jim, I am sure you are right. If Hornes and Boscov was successful with my visits, I am sure that Target will be successful without my visits.
Robert A. Shoaf June 08, 2012 at 03:45 PM
Re; Nordstrom's; there is, of course, one at Ross Park Mall, and I would think that the Pittsburgh market can only support one Nordstrom's. Ross Park Mall is a vastly superior mall to SHV, needless to say. I don't get the anti-Target comments; it's not Nordstrom's, but it's not a Dollar General either. Also, I assume property taxes at that end of the mall go to USC?
Becky Brindle June 08, 2012 at 07:14 PM
Yes Robert, that end of the mall is in USC so the property taxes will go to the township.
Jim June 08, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Comparing Hornes/Boscov to Target is ridiculous. Not to mention there is going to be a 2 story Dick's Sporting Goods on top of Target. Yeah your right Roger, that won't draw any better Hornes or Boscov.
Roger June 08, 2012 at 11:59 PM
I'm sorry, Jim, Apparently, my comment was too obtuse to understand.
Roger June 09, 2012 at 10:57 AM
These threads are always interesting. Often, when a large national chain makes a proposal to establish a business in an area, there are protesting comments. They go along the line, "... another large national business coming to take away business from Mom and Pop stores ... just build somewhere else...." I think such comments were made very recently about the proposal for the area now housing Boston Chicken. The outrage is registered against the large national business because of the expected negative impact on the local owners. Meanwhile, other large national businesses make a proposal, like the present one, and the entry into the local area is welcomed. Recently, a new restaurant was proposed at this site (Bonefish?), and the comments were very positive, "... great to see this coming, ... really liked the one in XYZ, and am happy to see them opening a place in this area ...." The principle about "hurting local small business owners" seemed to be tempered by the name of the new retailer. If it a new retailer, such as Target, apparently, it is great to see a new store of national caliber because people like their offerings and business operations. If the new retailer is one that has products and business operations that people do not like, then the "hurting local ..." argument is advanced. The assessment not about hurting local owners. The criteria is more about the desire for a local presence of the large national business.

Me too! I can't wait...March is a long time to wait...

I am so happy we are getting a Target at South Hills Village. I can stop there to shop after work. Thank you. Gloria from Bethel Park.
Gloria Harper February 08, 2013 at 03:22 PM
