Target will open its new store at Mic Mac Mall in Dartmouth in the fall of 2013, the U.S. retail chain said Thursday.

The company announced last year it was spending $1.83 billion to take over the leases of as many as 220 Zellers stores across Canada, among them the stores at Bedford Place Mall and Mic Mac Mall.

In a Thursday release, Target said as many as 200 employees will be hired for the Mic Mac Mall store, which will be renovated at a cost of $10 million to $11 million. The release did not mention an opening date for Bedford Place Mall.
