    Exclamation Target opening stores in Canada in 2013 & 2014

    Target is coming to Canada and opening stores in 2013. They're buying out leases from Zellers, the Canadian retail chain.

    Target coming to Canada - Canada - Canoe.ca

    I don't think it will be the same as the US locations re: bargains and merchandise offered.

    For example coupons are widely accepted down in the US and barely used/offered in Canada. Clothing brands/selection/sizing will still be different. A size 10 up in Canada is smaller then a size 10 down in the US.

    So fellow Fugal Canadians...does this make you excited?

    No. I have never found anything to buy in Target when in the States so I unless there is a big change in merchandise, I won't find anything when they come here

    Fixed that for you

    Zellers, Target, I don't care what they call themselves. The stores are all messy, in seedy locations and never have any advertised items in stock. They can slap any logo they want on the door, I'm still not shopping there.

    Hahaha - thanks MW.

    A lot of the Zellers stores are old dumpy/shady looking but the one close to me actually got a makeover a few years ago and looked like a Target for the most part of the store. I said that when they had a grand re-opening. Isn't that kind of ironic? I guess the bigger ones in thriving neighbourhoods got the 'Target-ish' makeovers. I think there was (is?) a jumbo one in Square One Mall in Mississauga, ON - the times I've been there, they've had all the advertised items and of course its nice and bright and clean. Go figure.

    I just had to laugh - we have two types of Target's down here - Tar-jay's (pronounced all french and fancy) and Targhetto's.

    Personally, I love Target. Part of that is because I refuse to shop at Walmart.

    I've never been in a Target store, so I'll have to wait and see.

    I looooooooooove Target! This makes me a happy woman! When I lived in NC, I shopped Target all of the time. I hate Wal-Mart and I can't wait for Target to get here.

    Lucky, ya'll, then! I also refuse to shop at Wal-Mart so Target is my mega retail outlet of choice. I really love their stores here in Texas, so clean, comfortable, and pleasant to shop at. I take advantage of their 5% off "red card" DEBIT card and online Target coupons and I save quite a bit of money each week. Enjoy your new store!

    OOwl - I'm not sure if they'll offer those same programs here in Canada....I'm hoping they do and will accept coupons as well as provide them.
