THE BRONX - A new Target store in the Hutchinson Metro Center is holding hiring interviews for the store's opening in July.

The interviews started Thursday and more than 100 people have moved onto the next round.

A store employee says they are looking to hire about 350 to 400 members for the store.

The Bronx has the highest unemployment rate in the state. President of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce Lenny Caro says with the creation of jobs, he hopes that number will decrease.

Organizers say that by the end of the day Saturday, they would have seen about 1,000 applicants.
