Target announced Friday that its new store under construction at Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa will open in July.

The store will employ about 200 workers, said Cary Strouse, Target's senior vice president of stores in the Western region.

Target will host job fairs for candidates to apply and interview for open positions about two months before the store opens. Candidates may also apply online at or at kiosks in all Target stores approximately three months before the Coddingtown store opens.

The 143,000-square-foot store will include fresh produce and meat, pre-packaged baked goods, a pharmacy, optical department and a Starbucks.

The store will be the fourth Target in Sonoma County, joining stores in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park and Petaluma.
