Oh, Canada! Target unveils first stores up north
MINNEAPOLIS — Target revealed Thursday the locations of the first 24 Canadian stores.
Target said the stores will open in March/early April 2013 and will be located in Brampton, Mississauga and Toronto, among others. Additional locations will be announced in the coming months.
As previously reported, Target purchased the leasehold interests of 189 sites currently operated by Zellers, and is slated to open 125 to 135 stores in Canada, the majority of which will open in 2013. Approximately $10 million to $11 million will be invested to remodel each facility, the retailer said.
“We are excited to announce the location of these first 24 Target stores in Ontario,” Target Canada president Tony Fisher said. “In addition to providing Canadian guests with an exceptional shopping experience, Target looks forward to continuing our strong reputation of being a good neighbor in the Canadian communities in which we will do business.”
