Target Canada’s Beauty Plans

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. Most of the stores are a result of the 189 Zellers leases Target purchased in 2011. 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. The stores’ debut will begin in Toronto, with 20 new units opening in March. Expansion will head west, then return east to Quebec by the end of the year.
