Target set to open its first Canadian stores in Ontario on Tuesday


GUELPH, Ont. – U.S. discount giant Target is set to open its first stores north of the border tomorrow.

Target Canada president Tony Fisher made the announcement today during a media tour of the retailer’s Guelph store in southwestern Ontario.

The Guelph store and two other locations in Fergus, Ont., and Milton, Ont., are slated to launch tomorrow morning.

The Minneapolis-based retailer is expected to open between 125 and 135 locations in Canada in spaces that were once owned by Zellers.

The national roll-out begins in Ontario before moving onto provinces in the West throughout the year and eventually into Quebec.
