Goodbye Zellers, hello Target! The U.S. chain is finally coming to Canada, $1.8 billion later
Rumours have been circulating forever now that Target is joining the ranks of U.S. retailers setting up in Canada, alongside J. Crew, Kohl’s, J.C. Penney and Crate and Barrel. Well, today those rumours were confirmed—and Toronto Life’s prediction from early 2010 was right. Target—or Tar-jay, in sarcastic French—will open in the Great White North by 2013, replacing the HBC-owned chain Zellers.
In a $1.8-billion deal announced Thursday, Target Corp. will acquire and convert most of the Zellers stores in Canada from parent company Hudson Bay Co., while the rest of the Target stores will be picked up by other retail enterprises. The Zellers takeover is similar to when Wal-Mart entered the Canadian market after snapping up Woolco stores in 1994.
The deal includes complex negotiations with Zellers landlords and is heralded as “industry-changing” by the Globe and Mail: “Zellers store leases will now be auctioned off to an array of other retailers, including potentially foreign players who have a growing desire to launch stores in Canada.”
“Industry-changing,” indeed. Target’s Canadian debut comes as welcome news for fashionistas on a budget who can finally pick up the much touted Rodarte for Target collection on this side of the border. Others—mainly such retailers as Canadian Tire, Winners, Great Canadian Superstore and Wal-Mart—are likely less keen, seeing as they’ll soon have a competitor that has more hype than all of them combined.

WHY!!! Do Canadian’s really want to become American’s???
WHY … Target’s NOT that great of a store, why don’t Canadian’s come to the US and find out just how frigging rude the US can be towards them.
Keep Canada – CANADA!!! This annoys me to no end!
This is not Target’s “debut” in Canada, it’s their RETURN!
I used to live in Gander, Newfoundland, CANADA. We had a Target Store there about 15 – 20 years ago. It was a very low-end, messy setup that went out of business. I worked right next door (at a BiWay of similar fate). I remember the older version of the target logo and I think of it every time I see the Target commercials on air today. I watch the commercials and think how much nicer the store appears to look now.
I wish I had some pictures. I’m sure some resident or former resident of Gander (and any other possible Canadian locations) might have some. But they were definitely in our country before.
Just a quick guess Deborah…you wrote this post on your Apple MacBook while sipping on a Starbucks Venti Soy Vanilla Latte after driving to work in you new Chevrolet Cruze? All products of American origin sold (and sometimes manufactured) here in Canada.
This is a business decision made by an American company venturing to Canada because we will support their brand and purchase their products.
I dont think anyone wants to be americans but Target has a very good offering in the US right now and this is something that canadian retailers have not been able to do…so Canada will gladly take their money for renting space on their land.
Hurrah hurrah hurrah sellers sucks and target is wonderful
Oh and marks and spencers please buy sone of the zellers stores as well there is no choice for mid markets goods in this city ….another reason why Toronto is so expensive!!!!!!
Target – Newfoundland discount variety store chain (1981–1995) – never related to American company.
yes this Hapen before but it was the same name and it was not the American chain does it mean that target Menes discount
Target – Newfoundland discount variety store chain (1981–1995) – never related to American company did you get this from Wikipedia or something because of that is something Eh Target/Zellers that Wikipedia Says im from St jonhs Newfoundland we used to have them In Newfoundland also but i thing it was the same what that person was Describing I just found out there was one in New Brunswick somewhere in Fredericton but i can not member where and what place and it looks like i saw it before but can not member where so can you help me out
now this lady is being rude to the U.S. Just moved home to Canada and the sadest thing about leaving the U.S. was no Target. You will regret saying that once you find great clothing and everything at so much better quality and style than any Walmart or Zellars. There is no comparison; Target can’t even be compared as they are in a different league. Can’t wait! The best news ever. Now I am really home in Canada!!!
This whole Target thing is a bit meh on my part. I’m looking forward to J.Crew coming this year though!
Target is just like Zellers. It’s just an American version of Zellers. I’m a proud Canadian and support the Canadian business. I think Zellers should stay and should not have to sell out to Target. If Target wants to branch out north of the border, they shouldn’t have to take over Zellers.
I AM CANADIAN AND PROUD OF IT! =)
Deborah – I suppose you think that if a foreign chain of business comes on-land in Canada, then you’re trying to be like them (i.e., American). It’s called business. there are many business chains that are not Canadian (Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, etc, etc.). C’mon, don’t be ridiculous. You know you probably cross the border to “shop in the States”.
I think Target being here will be a great addition. And yes, I’m an American living in Canada and I think that prices here for goods are way too high.
Deborah-GET OVER IT!!! I love Canada and the store is going to be a Canadian Target. It’s going to bring many new jobs and maybe Canadians will shop in Canada instead of crossing the border to find these stores. It’s great for the country. If you had a bad encounter with some American’s that’s unfortunate but it doesn’t mean they are all bad. That’s like saying all men are bad when one acts like a jerk. It’s time to grow up and stop thinking someone or something is taking over what you deem to symbolize your patriotism. If you are a true Canadian then you are for what’s best for Canadians, which is jobs and supporting our economy and eachother. We are known to be kind people in general but your not being very kind, are you. I don’t think the Canadian Zellers owners are traumatized they were bought out by Target so you shouldn’t be either. Turn your frown upside down and be positive. Maybe you can get a job at Target:)
Canadian? What Canadian? This is the 51st state of America. Canada shops American, follows American troops wherever they go, vacations in America, buys american dollar savings and the list goes on. Where is the Canadian identity? I think it lies in Canadian protectionism and hypocrisy.
Target was caught making political donations to anti-gay candidates. When the brouhaha threatened their bottom line and boycotts/bad PR are piling up, the CEO of the company that always targeted the LGBT consumers offered an apology and promise of future practices. Then Target is caught again shortly after right before Christmas. I am not shopping there. http://www.theawl.com/2010/12/the-anti-gay-donations-that-target-apologized-for-they-never-stopped
Hi guys please don’t forget that Zellers has a home office here (not the actual retail stores but the office where buying and development are done). A ton of employees have just been told they will be out of a job in a year. Target will keep it’s buying and development headquarters in the USA and those Canadians will just be out of work.
I love shopping at Target as much as the next person, really I do, but I don’t love more Canadians out of work, just sayin’.
Get over your bloody selves!!! Zellers is AMERICAN you dumb ass patriotic canadian!! The Hudson BAY is AMERICAN!! Be thankful that the US chain will give competition and better price and quality stuff. Have you walked into a Zellers store lately and went WOW ? The huge sears @ Eaton centre should be next – what a disgrace in a prime retail spot!!
Zellers is NOT a CANADIAN store… do you not remember when Jerry Zucker bought it out years ago? Well his wife got sick of not making money and sold it to her Americian friends. I have worked for HELLers for 15 years and heres hoping Target does a much better job at stocking the shelves,having sale items on hand AND treating the staff with respect.
Amen to that! I don’t know all the details, granted but I am sick of the US taking over everything. I just want somehting to be CANADIAN without the American influence. i’m annoyed.
Amen to what, Beth?! Your comment is contradictory..then you say u r annoyed…again, repeat after me…ZELLERS IS NOT CANADIAN but I AM CANADIAN and love to cry about everything!!!
I loved Zellers I would shop there over walmart because they treat ther staff so bad I wanted zellers to stay here but what can you do. You guys are right what they sell at zellers is not all that good stuff but look at walmart not much better at all! I do not mind American stores coming to canada but its when all they want to do is take over our retail here thats when I get upset Zellers is owned by a American company but it was a CANADIAN store befor 2008 and zellers opened ther first store back in 1937 I wonder what Walter P. Zeller would say about his stores being sold to American company? I went to a target when I was in the U.S. it was good I guess so if they are anything like walmart and how they treat the people that work there then I do not want anything to do with them or will not shopp there if they are good place to work like costco is and have good stuff like costco then I will for sure go there dam right I will!! I will shopp at a store that saves me cash…. But have to say good by to zellers I will shopp there tell the doors are closed for good and not all zellers stuff is junk!
Not to worry, Shoplove – the displaced Zellers head office admin staff can apply for positions at the new Target head office where they will probably get paid better and have more chances at career advancement as this great new chain succeeds and quickly takes over Canada as the best mid-market retail store (I take a run down to the States to shop there semi-annualy).
I’m totally in symphony with Rajiv and Pee… as far as consumerism is concerned, we are regarded world-wide as an extension of the American market; if you don’t like it, don’t shop there (but I guarantee you’ll regret it!). Tis has nothing to do with patriotism, only awareness (instead of denial) about what’s really going on around us with respect to the global economy.
I suppose Deborah doesn’t shop at IKEA either?
As someone who has worked for Target for more than 6 years, I can tell you that this is an amazing company to work for! Canadians should be excited to not only have the opportunity to shop at a fashionable discount retailer, but to potentially work for a company with a great culture, fantastic benefits, and advancement opportunities. Please do your research before posting comments about Target being French, not supporting the troops, etc. This is all rumor- not fact. If you want to learn more about the company, there was a special on MSNBC that recently aired called “Behind the Bullseye”
It’s “Real Canadian Superstore.” Not “Great Canadian Superstore.”
Great – Another American owned company selling Chinese made stuff – CRAP!!!
If anyone is simple-minded enough to assume Canada is becoming the US because Canadians shop at American stores, then it’s your own poor knowledge of the Canadian identity that should be worrying you, not the import price of toilet paper from the Wisconsin.
Canada’s national banking system (which saved us from the depression-like ‘recession’ the states is still reeling from), our progressive immigration policies, our lack of hand guns in every home, our universal health care, and the ability of our gay citizens to be recognized as couples by the law – these are the things that truly set us apart from our neighbours to the south.
Besides, if buying foreign goods were a real indicator of a country’s national identity then the whole world’s been China for over a decade anyhow.
Sooo Excited!!! It is gonna benefit us all, no reason to be negative about this at all!!! Target is great, Zellers is just a joke. Peace and Love for Canada
I’ve been waiting for this day for years!! Plus, let’s just be clear, Zellers has been American for 10 years, since The Bay got bought by an American company.
I think the point that many of you proud CDNs are missing here is that Canadian retail offerings more or less suck and Target and other US stores are here to fill a segment of the market that we ourselves have nothing to show for–in other words, it’s an opportunity which was there from the start just that no one took it and those that did (bear in mind that Zellers was once CDN, before being bought out but L&T I think?) obviously didn’t execute it right such that it had to be sold out to a giant US retailer (surprise). Not only that but look at the gaudy prices of things when shopping in Canada–you can’t get anything good here at prices that you can in the US. Face it, we’re suckers. If Canada cannot stay on top of things, US and other foreign retailers will come in and offer what they have and well, like it or not, admit it or not, you’ll be lining up at their registers to ring in your stuff! Are you proud CDNs all sitting there typing your messages on your RIM smartphones, wearing the latest from your local non-chain Canadian retailer? As for the chains, at best we have what, Joe Fresh whose clothes are cute but seem to look like granny wear when put on?? C’mon people, just admit it, WE LOVE IT!
PS: Are your homes furnished by Idomo or IKEA? Because one is CDN (and closing shop if it has not already–and should) and one is not, so stop boohooing with your hypocrisy. It’s called business/trade.
Why are some people so worried about their Canadian identity? Canada is finally in a position to attract foreign investment. Target is a huge company that low income families can shop at. We certainly could use a break anywhere we can get it. If you really want something to complain about tell your government to reduce personal income taxes so that your taking home more of your paycheck then your giving them. Maybe you could also demand real rent control so that people on minimum wage don’t have to live with five other people to keep a roof over their head.
Being Canadian should be a love and pride for the country you were born in and are willing to die for. So when an investor comes to Canada maybe you should try being grateful that others believe our country is worth investing in and stop putting that country and its people down.
Besides that, it’s the US for heaven’s sake. They are the only country in the world right now that Canadians don’t have any fear of visiting.
I think it is absolutely absurd!!! Wal-mart and Target can stay in the States…I won’t be shopping there. There are enough problems with Wal-mart and ow they are taking over one of my favourite stores that I practically grew up in. This shouldn’t be allowed, Canadians should shop at Canadian owned companies!
Let’s wait and see before we celebrate Target’s arrival in Canada. Many U.S. clothing chains open up shop here, but don’t offer the same selection or deals as they do in the States. Brooks Brothers, for example, is one. It has nowhere near the broad choice or good sales as are offered south of the border.
Do not assume that you’ll see the same awesome selection as you would in a U.S. Target. Canadian consumers *always* get shafted…by booksellers, online retailers, and bricks-and-mortar stores.
I am taking the same approach of ‘lets wait and see” Clothing selections will definitely be limited as will grocery and health & beauty products. Target may decide to limit products sold in Canadian stores keeping in mind that all products will need to have bilingual labeling and Canadian nutritional information so that may hinder choices somewhat. I am not expecting to be able to go into Canadian Target and get Fage yogurt, or Ciao Bella gelato, or my favorite Archer Farms nuts and trail mixes.
Expectations lead to disappointment.
Just learned that “TARGET” will not/does not support veterans in either Canada or US. Apparently they wouldn’t even allow marines to collect”toys for tots” at any of their locations. Perhaps they(TARGET) should stay in France.
Zellers is a company that does not care about its employees and takes items customers donate for childrens charitys and puts it on their shelves to resell so welcome target
As long as the price points are comprable to U.S. Rager
stores, why would we not shop there?
Target is great!
iPhone auto spell does it again…
U.S. Target stores…
Btw- Deborah, put down your venti beverage
and lose the anti U.S. attitude. Pretty ignorant
for someone who most likely shops at the Gap.
I’m so mad I live in the us and all of the candaians are always packing target in Niagara Falls New York, and I’ve been to zellers and zellers may cost a bit more but they have sooooo much better stuff and selcetion, I’m very sad to see zellers go, and I think even once canadians get target stores on their own turf, they’ll still keep crowding the one across the border (in New York) because the prices prpbably still will be cheaper in the US, so targets in canada basically pointless!
rjuned: The “Target” stores that were once in Newfoundland are NOT related to the US company Target in any way. And honestly, what isn’t low-end and messy in Gander?
I am a proud Canadian and only know about Target from Rosie O’Donnell. I remember she used to talk about how she LOVED shopping there back in the day when she had her own talk show. Miss you Rosie!
I have since read through their website and I’m impressed with their company information. I look forward to shopping at Target especially the baby clothes and kids department. In the Metro Vancouver region there’s a lack of stores that offer affordable and a large selection of children’s clothing. This is one area in which Target will excel.
I just moved from Miami and am happy that Target is opening…although I haven’t been to a Zellers yet to compare Most of the clothes aren’t of high quality fabric, but many are good enough at price point. I’ve bought bathing suits and maternity clothes there -great for babies, toddlers, and kids who grow out of stuff so quickly. Better style and quality higher priced than Wal-mart. Also great for home goods and toys.
As for Deborah, most of the Americans (from Miami, NYC, Pittsburgh) I know love Canada and many are jealous of my moving, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.
My only problem is ……..why is it going to take 3 years for Target to get here?? I was hoping it would be next week lol….and by the way I don’t feel any less Canadian by saying this.
One thing I think some of you are missing is that HBC Co. is American owned. Purchased in 2006 and again in 2008. So for those of you that think you are shopping Canadian, you are mistaken. Might as well shop at Target or Wal-mart, doesn’t really matter.
uh, thanks…i am american living in canada…american stores ROCK! zellers SUCKS!
Target is a great retailer and I am very happy that they are finally coming to Canada. We need more not less retailers in Canada, we have no competition and that is bad for all consumers. Target provides great value in the US for consumers and hopefully will do the same in Canada. Go Target!
Yippee, now all we need are from some stores to open in Ottawa. Yes, there are some of us outside of Toronto who like to shop – Target, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn and Saks please!! Shopping is the only thing I miss about living in the US – it truly is lousy here. Parochial is the term that springs to mind.
It would be great if there was shopping online from the new Canadian Targets!!
It would also, be great if the took into consideration how bright department stores are nowadays. It would be nice if they had lower lighting than the majority of the others out there! I loved Targed when I went into one in the US, but couldn’t stay because of the lighting..sent me into FULL panic and anxiety mode! Unless something with their lighting changes, it will be the same as every other department store for me…no go!
Unfortunatly, this is very common. The sensitivity to the lights sets off all sorts of emotions (stress, panic, moodienes, feeling of being rushed, anxiety etc. etc.). It also sets off seizures for people I know.
Hope they are able to tone down the lighting a bit, maybe add more carpeting so it doesn’t reflect off of the floor and make it look twice as bright!
…doubt it will happen, but thought I should put it out there!
Enjoy your shopping adventures everyone!
Congrulations for the people saying that the Hudson Bay is not a Canadian company. It was, up until January 2006. That’s 5 years it wasn’t Canadian, as for the rest of it, The hudson bay company has a huge role to play in Canadian history, and that is why Canadians are patriotic about it. Also as for saying that Canada is the just like America, you could not be more wrong. We have MANY differences, and I could list them all but I am afraid my comment would be way too long.
it is fine and dandy that target is coming to ontario… but they are not taking all the stores,,, what about those, like me that have been close to 25 years to working for zellers,… when the bay was down, zellers was there to pull them up… it feels like we are told to get lost… we dont want u because we are not that profitable…we stuck together,,, it feels like we dont want u anymore,,, what about my job… i dont look forward to starting over,,, if we could carry our years of service with us and be guarrentted a job… just to be reassured of a job… it is scary to basically to start over…
woo hoo Target! I just moved back to Canada from the States and am desperately missing the shopping. Canada needs American stores because Canada’s suck! Ha ha.
what abaout magicuts salons ,what will hapen with them ,magicuts paid to little,feel sorry for people who works for them, very chip boss most probably thas what hair cuts is very low level,boss make you are people happy do not be dictator.
Target is coming,When
Zellers,Magicuts,out of bisnis,Welcome Target we love you.
IF YOU LOVE TARGET THEN MOVE TO U.S ….TRUE CANADIANS LOVE ZELLERS AND GIANT TIGER AND DOLLARAMA AND REAL CANADIAN SUPERSTORE…GOT IT…IF YOU DO NOT SUPPORT CANADIAN STORES THEN YOU ARE A TRADER..
Brian5427, I think you mean Traitor……..
And KUDOS to Jessica, your post was so intelligent and well written. I feel like Canadians are being very close-minded when they say they will not shop at American stores.
These ‘American’ stores are providing jobs for CANADIANS and supporting our CANADIAN economy. I used to work for Zellers, and it wasn’t a bad company to work for, but I never shopped there.
I do go over to the states probably 3 or 4 times a year just to shop and now that we will have Target’s here my dollar will stay in Canada :)
I am just as patriotic as the next Canadian and I honestly am so excited that Target is expanding to the Great White North. I will be first in line at my local target!! Welcome to Canada Target!!
You cheer for a corporation who doesn’t give a crap about you. It shows alot of your character.
Target is going to hire new people for minimum wage, $12.00 an hour for a country that has 8% unemployment, no technology jobs, not enough jobs for teachers, for nurses, for engineers etc etc. HURRAY! Canadian educated youth serving you at TARGET! HURRAY! BUY FROM CHINA sell to Canadian CLOWNS! HURRAY! canadian business sucks!
I can see the person who wrote this article will never write for BBC, New York Times or anything professional. 40,000 employees will be terminated and re-hired for minimum wage, around 10.50 an hour. You think that is not gonna hit your income? Your job? your services? your internet traffic? Oh yes it will. Canada is going to be the new Detriot, the new michigan. No middle class. Good article, did you do your research on youtube?
How would one who is employed now by Zellers go about
appling for employment with Target when all the Zellers Stores it will transformed to a Target is confirmed
I’m 100% Canadian, born and raised in manitoba but lived in various provinces growing up. Once married, we followed the brain drain to Minneapolis for 3 yrs where i discovered Target.
I must say, that in terms of prices, selection and various other aspects Target far surpasses Wal-Mart and even Zellers and goes a notch above without looking overly cheap and cheezy. I can’t wait to have Target here for our shopping convenience.
However I do wonder about the old Zellers stores that Target will take over – those buildings need to be revamped and the square footage seems quite small compared to the American stores. How will all that stock fit into an old Zellers building without cheaping out on the selection of all their products?? Zellers has had and still does have some Target brands but it’s few and far between which is a smidge annoying.
I’m glad Target is coming. Sellers was tired, run down and irrelevant. He’ll they couldn’t even sell their olympic stuff during the olympics. If business was that bad then, they would have no choice but to sellout to Target. Oh and Deborah you’re like those uneducated, whiny losers that nobody likes. You’re probably not good with money either. Shallow minded. Target is a much better store than Zellers. For one they actually try. Zellers is soul suckingly depressing. I wish Target can come sooner. I hate Zellers. In fact most of HBC is pretty run down. At least The Bay is trying.
Any company that comes into Canada and provides Canadians with jobs is okay by me.
TARGET IS AMAZING!! so is america. canada needs target!
Zellers is my favourite store, over Walmart actually. I used to travel a lot in the U.S. and would make a beeline to Target. It offers so much more and the people are wonderful. For those of you who think that American’s are rude, you couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a Newfoundlander and found the majority of them just wonderful, same as Canadians. This will bring more jobs to people in those areas. Isn’t that a good thing? With the way the economy is and with Target’s pricing and how many things they offer, I’m sure everyone who said something negative here will go there once they realize it’s a positive thing for sure.
I’m Canadian, and I’m so excited Target is coming over here. Damn, I wish it could be here now. It’s not about becoming American (hell, that’s even stupid. We already buy soo many American products anyway), but finding a bigger variety of stuff at a better price. I’ve been waiting for this for years. I want to do a hop, skip, jump :D
Well Target isnt taking over the Zellers store where i work… Walmart is and they are only staying there long enough for thr expansion of the old wally.So thanks to the G.D. americians i will be out of a job i held for 16 1/2 years.I hate the Americians and when we become Canamerica i will be moving to Russia !!!!
I worked at BiWay in St. John’s in the late 80’s…one of our competitors was Target stores, but htye were a NL owned company not the same as the US chain that is coming to Canada.
And to those that say Zellars should not be closing, well, it’s simple competition. Many of you who are whining about losing our Canadian identity were the same ones with full shopping carts at Wal Mart. Zellars had poor locations, less staff and higher prices than Wal Mart.
20’000 new jobs!!!! Is a joke, nearly all zellers employees get terminated and have to attend job fairs with no guarantees of getting a job.
No new jobs being created and likely less than we’re let go in the first place
After shopping at zellers last week, and asking the cashier when she starts with target, I found out that everyone is getting laid off. Shame on you target. If that happens I think you just lost valuable customers who do not agree with your HR decision.
Candians are mean! Why do they always have something bad to say about Americans. The meanest people Ive come across were involved in canadian customer service! Lived in both countries, && finally you guys are getting target. A variety of quality products, at the cheapest price possible!
Spot on with this writeup, I really suppose this
website needs far more consideration. Ill most likely be once more
to read much more, thanks for the info.
Here is my web page … reverse phone lookup
WILL” I THINK THAT TARGET COMING HERE IS A GOOD THING BECAUSE WE NEED SOMETHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WAL-MART IN CANADA.
I am also a Canadian and would like to buy Canadian products.Unfortunately, the older I get, the more disappointed I am in what a lot of our stores have to offer.I am looking forward to seeing what Target will bring to us, and hopefully that will include decent jobs for friendly hard-working Canadians.Wouldn’t that be a very good thing indeed.
I in particular cannot say I’m happy Sellers is going nor that target is coming. Having grown up in europe in general I am opposed to big box stores.
First off Zellers is not Canadian anymore!!! It belongs to the US.
This is what I find was the absolute biggest disgrace to all of Canadian history!!!!! Zellers is a sub-store belonging to HBC Trading Co. Which also includes The Bay. Anyone who is a proud Canadian will know that HBC is in fact the absolute oldest company which helped found our great nation, without it we would have never become who we are. HBC was the first trading company that initially traded goods with the native Americans as well as supplied all the hunters and trappers with basic necesseties required for their basic survival.
So with thiese lil history facts that most of you prob weren’t even aware of with simply ranting about Target taking over our Canadian industry.
It simply broke my heart that HBC simply got sold to the Americans, we got rid of our oldest most Canadian part of history to the Americans!!! What is wrong with this country!
It shouldn’t be about whether Zellers is being replaced by Target or the fact that Walmart has forced thousands of small businesses into bankruptcy. It should be about keeping our heritage, if we want to take our country back simply stop buying from American stores, including safeway, home depot, Walmart, petsmart etc, I wish for nothing more than us to buy HBC back, keeping it purely Canadian. A lil fact on how the Americans destroy any other industry, my father who works for the German car company Mercedes Benz could tell you about how the merger with Chrysler truly damaged everything that the company had worked for, Daimler-Chrysler was a complete flop. When the divorse happened the stock market plumeted and since his entire retirement funds were locked up in stock many years later is still trying to recover from the losses, how is he supposed to support the family with the lil money he has left, all thanx to the stupid Americans!
Don’t bother with Target, let’s just make HBC Canadian again!!!
Target is the joke, Zellers was the best… Canada screwed up letting the americans in … NO WAY DO I WANT TO BE CALLED AMERICA THE SECOND… HOW SAD FOR CANADA TO END ANOTHER CANADIAN COMPANY…. NO MORE AMERICAN COMPANIES CANADA …
The brain drain to the Mini Apple?
hey im true canadian and i miss zellers so much heck i never even been to the resturants or anything in the stores and now that chance will never come good job u american jerks
