Target Buys Zellers Stores: Coming to Canada in 2013

Zellers is not closing but selling some 220 stores to Target – who will close about 70 and rename & open 150 Target branded stores in 2013 or 2014.

Via Reuters.

Fans of Target & retailing history can check the CNBC Special airing this month, “Target: Inside the Bullseye.” Check out the original logo and the stores in the 196o’s.

“From its humble beginnings as a family-owned Minneapolis department store to retail giant Target has strived to make cheap, chic.”

And of course, the mesmerizing FLOWING DATA animation of Target store opening from the early 1960’s.

Though a Canadian retailer claims TARGET is their trademark.

And for CARS fans, it should be noted that Target Canada will be “served” by Mattel Int’l who are a completely separate business unit from the regular CARS group … and of course 2013 is a LONG TIME AWAY … by then we’ll be on a whole group of Mater Tall Tales.
