Target Coquitlam, Langley, Victoria Stores Opening In May


Look out, British Columbian bargain hunters: the wait is almost over for Target Canada's arrival.

Popular discount retailer Target is continuing its Canadian expansion with twenty-two "soft openings" in Western Canada – including nine B.C. stores – on Tuesday.

“It was exciting to see the response to our Ontario store openings,” said Tony Fisher, president of Target Canada in a press release Monday.

The news comes a month after the Minneapolis-based retailer opened 24 stores in Ontario. Fisher said the Ontario openings have provided the company with "valuable insights."

The company’s West Coast expansion is part of an aggressive plan to launch 124 Canadian stores by the end of the year.

Target Canada's new B.C. stores will mostly take over former Zeller’s locations.

A store in Prince George is scheduled to open May 14.
