And they’re not even opening for business in Canada till 2013! The much-loved “cheap-chic'' discount chain, Target Corp., referred to by fans as "Tar-Jay," says it has Canada in its sights as part of a future international expansion plan.
Like many U.S. retailers, Target is mulling a move outside its home market after sales and profits took a nosedive in the past year.
The announcement comes years after Target was rumored to be eyeing an entry into Canada through the purchase of Hudson's Bay Co.-owned discounter, Zellers. Hudson's Bay was publicly traded and widely held at the time.
