Quebec Finally Gets To Say Hello To 'Target' Tomorrow

The American superstore opens its first locations in Quebec and Nova Scotia.
Quebec Finally Gets To Say Hello To 'Target' Tomorrow

September 17th will be a big day of change for Quebec retail as American mega-store Target opens its first round of stores in Montreal and across Quebec. Taking over old Zellers locations, the new Canadian Target stores will include in-store Starbucks, pharmacies, and feature exlusive Target brands like Archer Farms, Market Pantry, and collaborations with Aliment du Quebec. All that, and basically everything you'll ever need in a store, from food to electronics, and camping gear to cleaning products. If you've been to a Target, you'll know what I'm talking about.

If you haven't, check Target out at these locations starting tomorrow:

Brossard - Place Portobello

Laval - Méga Centre Autoroute 13

Lévis - Galeries Chagnon

Montreal - Place Vertu

Saint-Georges - Carrefour Saint-Georges

Saint-Jérôme - Carrefour du Nord

Trois-Rivières - Les Rivières Shopping Centre

Target already has 68 stores across Canada, and the company has publically stated they wish to have 124 by the end of 2013. Check out the image above for a better idea of Target's expansion plan. Coinciding with the Quebec openings are Nova Scotia's first Target stores, as the one-stop shopping supercentre spreads throughout Canada. Low prices and convenience are awesome for us consumers, but what will happen to Canadian businesses as Target begins to dominate the retail market? I guess only time will tell.

Excited to finally shop at Target? Think American companies should stay below the border? Let us know in the comments below
