Towne East Square, 7700 E. Kellogg, will host the fair from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday in the mall’s food court, on the lower level.

Mall retailers that are hiring will include Aerie, American Eagle Outfitters, Dillard’s, Footlocker, Forever 21, JCPenney, Old Navy and Victoria’s Secret.

Mall officials said in a news release Monday that retailers will distribute applications to interested applicants and be available to interview candidates during the fair. Professional dress is recommended, mall officials said, and applicants are encouraged to bring plenty of copies of their resumes.

Applicants can also apply online, while in the store, and/or on smart phones.
