Target is coming!

As a Canadian, I should be grieving or sad that another American company is coming to Canada.  But damn...we're talking about Target.  Hurray!

It's one of the stores I make a beeline for when I'm in the States and another fave...Ann Taylor.


Target is Coming up North

Of the 276 Zellers stores Target will convert only 100-150 of them. The rest will be sold or torn down. My concern is locally the Zellers provides a discount retailer for the less-than-wealthy natives of my area. While I am aware that Target is also a discount retailer, it is just one more gentrification exercise that could prove rather interesting for the less affluent in the area. Of course if Target decides (likely) that the local Zellers will not be "Target-ized" I hope another discount store opens in Zellers' place. Still huzzah for all Target lovers out there. Enjoy

I'm excited. There is a Zellers right near me, but I fear that it won't be one of the ones converted...

I love Target. I hope that we get the same merchandise that they have in the US stores. I have always found it on par price-wise with Zellers, but a bit nicer quality.
They had some wonderful Alice in Wonderland plastic dishes that one can't find anywhere else. I think that this will make The Bay a better place, as they'll have to keep up a little more.
