With last week’s announcement of Target’s Canadian departure, the Canadian retail sector has started to reach out to the 17,600 Target employees who are losing their jobs.  First up to the plate is Sears Canada who says it will be extending special offers to Target employees and is encouraging interested individuals to come work for Sears.

According to the Globe and Mail, beginning this week, Sears will create special events Targeting (pun intended) Target Canada’s head office and executive level staff.

Furthermore in an effort to attract Target employees Sears is offering Target Canada employees a discount for a period of 16 weeks starting on Jan 21st.
