Target announced today that it will continue its Canadian expansion in 2014 by adding another nine store locations to the 124 Target stores now open in all 10 provinces. The majority of the new stores will open in Ontario, with single store additions planned for Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta and B.C. “The past year marked a major milestone for Target as we delivered on the unprecedented goal of opening 124 Target stores across ten provinces in 2013,” said Tony Fisher, president, Target Canada, in a press release. “As we head into 2014, we will continue to enhance the guest experience at all stores, while continuing to expand our presence in new Canadian neighbourhoods.”
New Target stores will open in spring 2014 at The Stockyards, in Toronto, Ontario; Kingsway Mall, in Edmonton, Alberta; and at Hillside Centre, in Victoria, British Columbia. Three more will open in the summer of 2014 at Erin Mills Town Centre, in Mississauga, Ontario; Park Place, in Barrie, Ontario; and Carrefour Candiac, in Candiac, Quebec. Another three stores will open in the fall of 2014 at St. Laurent, in Ottawa, Ontario; Sheridan Centre, in Mississauga, Ontario; and Polo Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
