Target Canada Locations: 20 New Stores To Open In Ontario, B.C., Prairies


Target will open an additional 20 stores in Canada this month, adding to the 48 locations already in operation across the country, the big U.S.-based retailer announced Thursday.

The new locations, opening between July 16 and July 30, include a store at the South Oakville Centre and Oshawa’s Five Points Mall. Overall, there will be 11 openings in Ontario, two each in British Columbia and Alberta, and three in Saskatchewan, the first Target stores in that province.
