Target Announces First Wave of New Stores

By Bizclik Editor


Target has announced its first wave of stores from its Canadian expansion in early 2013. 105 stores total across Canada, most locations have been purchased from Zellers.

This paired with the opening of its Canadian headquarters in Missisauga, Ontario, is a big announcement from the corporation.

The list of locations includes stores in all provinces. This should provide ample job opportunities to Canadians. Locations announced include 45 stores in Ontario, 19 in Quebec, 15 in British Columbia, 13 in Alberta, five in Manitoba, two in Saskatchwan, two in Nova Scotia, two  in Newfoundland and Labrador, one in New Brunswick and one in Prince Edward Island.

“This is just the first wave,” said Target Canada President Tony Fisher at a media presentation Thursday. "We plan to hire tens of thousands of Canadians," Fischer continued.

A discount department store chain that sells clothing, shoes, jewellery, health and beauty products, kitchen supplies, electronics, automotive and hardware supplies among other things.

Target has said it will announce its second wave of store openings sometime in September.

The stores acquired from Zellers came from a purchase of leasehold rights to 220 Zeller store locations announced in January. Target paid $1.85 billion in the transaction.
