Target came to Canada in early 2013. It was a branch organization of target department corporation in the u.s. They came to Canada but only stayed here for a short time, they ceased operations on April 12,2015.When target came to Canada the vast majority of people seen target as an over priced Wal-Mart. Target had over priced products and not a big selection of products as there u.s stores have. Thus showing us one of the reasons target ceased operations. Another reason was that they opened 220 targets but with nobody shopping at these targets they weren't making any money . Target lost 2.1 billion dollars.
