A popular American retailer will hire up to 200 staff when it opens at Coquitlam Centre mall this spring.

Target is now interviewing for "team leaders" and "store team members" — sales floor, cashiers and logistics — for its Barnet Highway space that was previously occupied by Zellers.

Spokesperson Lisa Gibson said the company has guaranteed interviews with all the Zellers employees; however, she noted, "our agreement with Zellers is a real estate transaction and did not involve the transfer of fixtures, inventory or employees," she said. "Our goal is to hire the best retail team in Canada and in order to do so we need the flexibility to interview interested candidates."

Target plans to launch 18 new stores in B.C. in former Zellers locations early this year, including eight in the Lower Mainland: Abbotsford, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge and Surrey. By next year, it will have up to 135 Target sites across Canada.
