October is right around the corner, and that means holiday shopping season is already gearing up. Target (NYSE: TGT) is launching its first holiday shopping event Oct. 6, and it plans to hire a lot of new employees to get it through the extended holiday season. The aggressive push adds more risk to Target's third- and fourth-quarter results, after profits took a massive hit from stores clearing out stale inventory in the second quarter.
Target's (TGT) multi-category assortment of owned and exclusive brands and popular national brands makes it a one-stop shopping destination.
Target (TGT) rolls out exclusive deals with higher savings for the holiday season. It also looks to hire nearly 100,000 seasonal team executives to aid guests.
