Target Canada is readying for expansion. Beginning this month, the mass-market retailer will roll out an estimated 124 newly revamped stores throughout 2013, complete with updated beauty sections.

In addition to these locations, Target has also confirmed it will be bringing stores to Morrison Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario and Laval Central in Laval, Quebec.
