Target made its way into Canada in March 2013 and sales have beat analyst predictions. The Canadian stores produced $86 million (USD) in sales despite the stores only being open for half a quarter that ended May 4.

The biggest sales were in the home and clothing categories, which didn’t surprise the retail giant. Statistically speaking customers are known to gravitate toward those two sections on their first trips to target.

Target opened its second wave of 24 stores in early May in Alberta, Monitoba, and British Columbia.

Target said the total national store count will reach 124 by yearend and employees will exceed 20,000.
