Minneapolis -- Target Corporation will open 23 new stores in Canada this fall, including its first stores in Quebec and Nova Scotia, along with additional Ontario locations in Ottawa and surrounding area. Fourteen stores will open on Sept. 17, and nine on Oct. 18.
The majority of the 23 locations will feature a licensed Starbucks, as well as an in-store pharmacy. As recently announced, the majority of stores in Quebec will offer Brunet pharmacies, which are scheduled to open starting in summer 2014. Sixteen of the stores will open in Quebec, while five will open in Ontario, and three will open in Nova Scotia. Target currently has 68 stores open across Canada with plans to open a total of 124 locations by the end of 2013.
"We look forward to opening our first stores in Quebec and Nova Scotia as we carry out an unprecedented retail expansion covering all ten provinces across Canada this year," said Tony Fisher, president, Target Canada. "Quebec, Nova Scotia and Ontario offer a variety of culturally diverse markets and we look forward to serving our new guests and engaging with these great communities."
