Target said Tuesday it cut about 275 more jobs and eliminated another 35 open positions as part of its shift to a new technology support system.

Most of the jobs cut are in the Twin Cities and are tied to technology in business areas including project management and business analysis, a Target spokesperson said.

Those cut will receive separation packages comparable to those other laid off workers have received this year, the company added.

Earlier this year, the Minneapolis-based retail giant slashed 1,700 employees from its workforce and said another 1,400 open positions would go unfilled as part of an initiative to save $2 billion.
