Target plans to continue its Canadian expansion by opening three new stores this fall at an unknown date, bringing this year’s new store total to nine. The retail giant will have a total of 133 stores in Canada by the end of 2014.
Two new locations will open in Ontario, in St. Laurent, Ottawa, and Sheridan Centre, Mississauga, as well as at Polo Park, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Earlier in 2014, Target opened stores in Toronto, Mississauga and Ottawa, Ont., Edmonton, Alta., Victoria, B.C., and Candiac, Que.
Target estimates that at each Canadian store, it employs approximately 150 workers, which the company calls “team members.”
