Target employees in Victoria struck a chord after posting a musical tribute to their last day of work on Facebook.

In his Facebook post Evan Holbein says staff were thinking about playing the song Closing time by Semisonic over the store's PA system on the final day of work, before the idea morphed into an impromptu recording session.

"In one take, and no practice, we took to our make shift instruments. I sat and played a shopping basket with two plastic hangers, Liam M grabbed a hanger bar to use as a faux-mic, and Eric mounted up his camera and masterfully filmed and edited this bad boy," said Holbein.

"With Brady and Liam K (Skipper) pulling us along, we poured our heart into our final goodbye through song, to a job we loved, and a building that contains so many great memories!"

Target Canada announced earlier this year it was closing at its 133 stores across Canada putting 17,600 employees out of work, less than two years after coming to Canada.
