A while back we told you that Target was coming to Canada. Now it’s actually official!
A few months ago, the federal government announced that it would be putting Target under a federal review to ensure that there is enough Canadian content on Target’s shelves when the brand opens up it’s store in 2013. After review, the verdict is now in: Target now has Ottawa’s approval to convert somewhere between 125- 135 former Zellers locations into Targets.  The American retailer has alluded to plans to amp up Target’s Canadian affiliation by lending support for Canadian cultural events, promote Canadian products and create 20, 000 to 25,000 new jobs by 2015.
