Brethren to the north, Target is coming to you! The mega retailer announced yesterday that they plan to open 200 stores in Canada beginning with six to 10 stores in 2014 and 2015, reports the Montreal Gazette. "We are exploring opportunities in Canada," said Amy Reilly, a Target spokeswoman. "We are optimistic that our first stores could open by mid-decade." The first location will be in the greater Toronto area. [MG]
