Target issued a list of the first 105 locations it will take over from Zellers. The stores are located in all 10 provinces across Canada. Target, known for its low prices on higher-end style, bought the lease rights for 220 Zellers locations from the Hudson’s Bay Co. for $1.8 billion in January.
Target, now the second-largest discount retailer in the U.S. after Walmart, has marketed itself as a stylish alternative to the No. 1 retailer and offers more high-end brands.
The first stores are expected to open in the spring of 2013.
Is anyone looking forward to Target coming to Canada?
