First Target stores in Canada opens 2013

Post by clock4me » Fri May 27, 2011 11:14 am

List of 105 locations Target choose so far in the first phase. Best performing stores maybe?

Lots of work with each store like $10 million in renovating and the first ones would be open early 2013. Can't wait to get their awesome Lego clearances and polybags!

And what makes you think that Canadian Targets will be any better for LEGO than Zellers :?

:cry: Goodbye, Zellers. I'll always cherish the memories of shopping with Mom and getting to eat at the restaurant in kindergarten.

Target really did its homework. Took the Vancouver Oakridge and Burnaby Metrotown ones in BC. Those stores are quite busy and are major city centers/malls with support from Skytrain/Subway.

Will miss Zellers. :cry:

I'm going to wait to see how Target do their pricing in Canada before getting too excited.

I'll only get excited about this if three things happen:

1) better pricing than Zeller's had...something to provide REAL competition for Walmart
2) stocks the 'Target exclusive' LEGO polybags that the USA always gets
3) has a better selection of LEGO than Zeller's usually had

If those three things DON'T happen, then Target can quietly bugger-off, IMO.

An update for the locations of first 24 Target in Canada. Unfortunately, all of them will be located at Ontario.
