Northlake Mall is hosting a job fair Oct. 10 so that retailers can staff up during the busy holiday shopping season.
Twenty-nine stores will participate in the hiring event that takes place 10 a.m.-7 p.m. in the mall’s food court, a spokeswoman said.
This holiday shopping season is still expected to be significant despite the fact that retailers nationwide are closing stores and declaring bankruptcy. The National Retail Federation said last week it expects sales in November and December to rise 3.6 percent to 4 percent, to a range of $678.75 billion to $682 billion.
Here are the retailers that are confirmed to participate in Tuesday’s fair:
The Walking Company
Bath & Body Works
The Picture People
C + C Market Research
The Children's Place
Locker Room by LIDs
