SIOUX FALLS -

One major retail store is already thinking about the holidays. 

Target says it'll hire more than 70,000 seasonal store workers for the busy shopping season.  That's about the same amount the company hired last year.  Target also plans to hire an additional 7,500 people for its distribution facilities, which ship online orders and send products to stores.  The discount chain says it'll hold hiring events at all of its stores on October 14 and 15.  Candidates can also apply online.  Current employees will first get to choose which extra holiday hours they want to work.
