    The vote could have a ripple effect in the U.S. retail industry as the economy recovers from the worst recession since the 1930s.

    Target is holding two jobs fairs in the Chicago area this week, aiming to hire about 150 employees for its newest suburban stores.

    The company said it will be hiring for its two new stores in Skokie and Oak Park, both of which are slated to open this fall.

    The "small format" stores will mark the seventh and eighth such stores in the area, following six others built in the city. 

    “We look forward to continue growing the number of our Chicago-area team members at our two new stores opening in October,” Tony Pena, district team leader for Target, said in a statement. “The Oak Park and Skokie small-format stores will offer local guests an easy, inspiring shopping experience and a unique product assortment that are conveniently located in the heart of these two neighborhoods.”

    At the job fairs, store leaders will conduct pre-scheduled interviews with applicants, the company said. Anyone interested in applying or attending the event can visit Target.com/careers to apply in advance or apply in-person on the day of a job fair.

    The job fair events will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

    The locations include: 

    Oak Park

    4050 North Harlem

    Norridge, Ill. 60706

    Skokie

    2209 Howard Street

    Evanston, Ill. 60202
