Despite recent challenges, Target opened three new Canadian locations last week, bringing its total store count to 133. Two locations are in Ontario, and one in Manitoba. The opening of these three new stores concludes the new store openings scheduled for 2014.

The new Target stores are at the following locations: 

  • Sheridan Centre in Mississauga, Ontario,
  • Polo Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and
  • St. Laurent Boulevard in Ottawa, Ontario.

Target employs an average of 150 staff, referred to as ‘team members’ by the company, at each of its Canadian locations. The three new stores feature licensed Starbucks franchises, as well as in-store pharmacies.

In March of 2013, Target Canada began its unprecedented Canadian expansion by opening 124 stores within nine months. In 2014, Target continued its Canadian growth by adding an additional nine stores.

“The opening of these three stores marks another important milestone for Target Canada,” said Mark Schindele, the company’s president. “As we head into the holiday season, we’re thrilled to offer our guests additional locations to find exclusive merchandise, great value and a unique shopping experience.”
