Target store coming to Milton

Target store coming to Milton

Target Corp. has announced the first 105 locations that it will take over from Zellers when it begins opening stores in Canada in early 2013.

“This is just the first wave,” Target Canada president Tony Fisher told media in a presentation in Chicago Thursday.

The list includes properties in 10 provinces; 13 in Alberta, 15 in British Columbia, five in Manitoba, one in New Brunswick, two in Newfoundland and Labrador, two in Nova Scotia, 45 in Ontario, one in PEI, 19 in Quebec, and two in Saskatchewan.

The “vast majority” of those sites will become Target stores, he said, after securing construction approval for extensive renovations. “Our goal is to open as many Target stores as possible,” with the first wave opening in early 2013.

According to the list, the Zellers store at Milton Mall will become a Target in the first wave of the American retailer’s Canadian openings in 2013.

Target will pay half of the $1.82-billion purchase price to Zellers owner Richard Baker in coming days for Zellers leasehold interests. In January the retailer announced it was buying up to 220 leaseholds from Zellers, a unit of Hudson’s Bay Co.

Target also announced it will open its Canadian headquarters in 180,000 square feet of space in Missisauga, Ont. The Canadian leadership team will be moving to Canada this summer.

In September the retailer will announce a second wave of store sites, Mr. Fisher said.

    We went to Target in Milton. As soon as we walked in the door, the place is so disaster. We walked around the store and we havent seen anyone on the sales floor that suppose to be helping us. There are clothes on the floor, toys, garbage and the bathroom is so dirty.

    We also witnessed this family who came up to one of the employee and asked about the price of the roots shirts. The employee answer “I don’t know the price and I have no idea where this shirt go” while she was folding the shirts. We didn’t see any employees greeted us or asked us if we needed help.

    All and all, this store is very disappointing to us. We went to Guelph is their first opening and they were very friendly and very helpful. Milton’s employees are very rude and the store is very dirty and unorganize. Maybe Milton shouldn’t open until they are ready for opening and the employees should be friendly to their customers. We didn’t feel Welcomd at all at the Milton store.

    One of the best things about being a Master Herbalist is in helping
    my family stay healthy. Make a lengthwise cut down the middle of the
    loaf without cutting through the bottom crust. The number one rule would
    be to set aside at least two hours strictly with no distractions
    of any kind, solely for writing articles.
