The Minneapolis retail giant will hire 130,000 workers for the holiday season. A majority of them will manage in-store pickups for online orders and same-day curbside deliveries.

“Certain trends from earlier this year will continue during the holiday season. We continue to see the guests gravitate towards the ease and convenience and contact-free ways to shop through our digital channels,” Cornell explained.

Due to coronavirus lockdowns, the company reported 10 million new customers among online sales through its website in the first half of the year.
