Target announced Friday that it plans to open a new store in Wilmington in October of 2014.

The store will be located at 210 Ballardvale St., according to a press release. It is one of 10 stores the company is planning to open in 2014.

The Wilmington store will be approximately 130,000 square feet, and will include fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks and a Target Pharmacy.

It will employ approximately 150 people. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates may apply and interview for open positions. Candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located in all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.

"The northern Massachusetts market has always been a priority for Target," said Samir Shah, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Eastern region. "With the launch of the new Wilmington Target store this October, we are proud to affirm our commitment to the community by serving as a good neighbor to our guests and local employer to our new Team Members."

Target said it also plans to make efforts to be part of the local community, including starting a local grant program, contributing to the United Way and donating food to a Feeding America member or approved agency.

With 7 dunkin donuts, a Starbucks, a market basket, a luccis, and tj max, why the hell do we need a target? Honestly, why? We have more than enough already. They will not be getting my money
