Target, which is suffering from weak sales, is hiring 70,000 in-store workers in preparation for the holiday season; unchanged for the fourth straight year. The company does, however, plan to hire 7,500 workers for its distribution and fulfillment centers, which is 1,000 more than last year.

Over the 2015 Black Friday weekend alone, Target employees served more than 446 million customers, and fulfilled more than 1 million online orders and “ship from store” orders, according to a company statement.
