They usually have different brands. Not all of the American brands that sell in the US Targets will be able to sell their stuff in Canada. Or, they might not want to.

Some do, some don't.

Wouldn't we then replace those products on the shelves with other products from elsewhere, products they don't sell in the US as well?

Yeah, that's kinda my point.

I'm just saying that it won't be the exact same, and people who go over the river to hit Target will likely keep doing that.

I checked the list and I have a Target opening up at a local mall.

Never been to a Target, but just strolled through their website. Their clothing are cheap, but you can't really tell.

when I lived in the US I went to Wal Mart 10x more than Target. Wal Mart used to be cheaper, but now they're even

I think most of the Target products from the US will be imported to Canada though. If they're opening 105 stores, they should be including most of their line of products.

That would suck if they don't though.

To clarify... I have a family member who is involved in this deal.
What's happening is the Bay is closing all of the Zeller's stores across Canada and then turning around and selling the real estate of the top stores to Target.

So Zellers is essentially being replaced by Target. Then the Bay is going public sometime in the next year or so (the current owners are Americans from the US who don't really understand that Canadian retail is far different to American retail business).

Target will carry the majority of their product line from the states as well as a few things that sold particularly well at Zellers.

Basically this is bad news for WallMart and relatively good news for consumers, cuz, lets face it, Zellers sucked.

Zellers is kinda the last of the old school department stores in that they never really attempted to change. I went a couple years ago - they had some sort of sale on - and it's like a wasteland inhabited by weirdos who buy those marshmallow ice cream cones.
