Target’s expansion of its troubled Canadian division remains on track as new chairman and CEO Brian Cornell prepares to assume leadership of the company in August.
The new stores are located at Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga, Ontario; Park Place in Barrie, Ontario and Carrefour Candiac in Candiac, Quebec. The Barrie and Candiac locations are new buildings. Earlier this year, Target opened three locations in Canada, and has plans to open three more later this fall, bringing this year’s total to nine and overall total to 130.
"At Target we're always looking for ways to enhance the guest experience, including opening stores in new locations that make shopping even more convenient for our guests," said Mark Schindele, president Target Canada. "We look forward to serving our guests at these three new stores, two of which we built from the ground up."
The three new stores will feature a licensed Starbucks, as well as in-store pharmacies designed to provide guests with comprehensive patient-centered healthcare.
Target employs an average of 150 people at each of its Canadian locations.
