LIHU‘E — Coach Z Zumwalt of the Flip Flop Shops had to work Saturday at Kukui Grove Center.

But the chore was not that bad, as Coach Z shared a shift at the small business with daughter Sydney during the shopping center’s Dad’s Day Celebration, where Deja Vu Surf Hawai‘i brought in special guest representatives to talk about the unique, Kaua‘i-made fishing accessories like gaffs and other stainless steel ware.

“We’re hiring,” said Koa Kubera, the Target Kaua‘i human resources manager, who debuted the Target store’s appearance with a table at the food court area. “Everyone is getting super excited. We’re hiring for all positions in the new store, and applications can be filled out at target.com/career.”

Kubera said if someone goes to target.com/career and searches for “Lihu‘e,” currently only team-leader positions are listed.

“We’ll have the team-member positions like cashiers and others listed by the end of the month,” Kubera said. “We’re reaching out to the community right now. We connected with the Kukui Grove Center and plan to be at as many of their community events as we can. We want to reach out to the underserved communities so when the store opens, the people who are in the store are the same as those from the community.”

Target Lihu‘e is currently offering perks of a 10% employee discount, $15.75 an hour to start, and opportunity to work up to 40 hours a week.

All positions, including on-demand, seasonal and regular hours, are available.

The community vein spread into the 16th annual Dad’s Day Car Show presented by Harvey Maeda and Kaua‘i Classic Cars, where car buffs could contribute nonperishable food and cash to benefit the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank, whose board president Donna King was on hand to help distribute giveaway prizes.
