KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The newest Target store in Hawaii is opening soon in Kailua on Oahu, with a nod to the local community.

The 130,000 square foot store, which will be the smallest Target in Hawaii, is set to open on March 4.

The company partnered with local residents to get input on what they wanted from a Target, and the design of the store reflects some of those suggestions. Although Target is a national chain, the company says it made sure the store has a local feel.

"The biggest thing is ensuring that we have great local products that we can sell. So we've really taken great care to partner with 30 local vendors to have local products or locally sourced products available in Target Kailua," said Drew Santos, store manager.

To address residents' concerns about traffic, Target initiated a study that resulted in the company paying for new traffic lights near the store.

Target says it will hire 200 to 300 employees. Doors are set to open on March 4 at 8 a.m.
