    Target leaving Canada

    Just saw on the news that Target is hightailing it out of here, though I haven't seen any info as to why but I'm guessing they weren't getting the sales they were hoping for. It's a shame for all the employees, a majority of them were rehired after they lost their job at Zellers (when they closed down & got taken over by Target), but now really the only "all in one general" store we got left is Walmart and I don't see them going out of their way to expand all over, though who knows. Good bye wonderful deals & self check-out lanes!

    Also, Sony apparently bailing outta Canada too.

    That makes me sad, Target is one of my favourite places to shop. Although I'm actually surprised Wal-Mart hasn't spread out more. Even in the US, they're densely packed in some states and cities, and almost non-existent in others.

    Eh, I avoid the self-checkout unless all the live humans are already super-busy. Workers need work, I'm not gonna help replace them with machines.

    Target is over-priced like hell. I went in there once and never went in there again.

    ^ Really? I always found their food to be well priced, especially if it was a 2 for one deal which I got quite often. xD Though I never did pass math, god only knows the amount of times I've probably been ripped off. ;x

    Target's food is decently priced, the few times I've been in there.

    But everything else is just
    ridiculously fucking expensive.

    Want a shirt? Better be prepared to spend $30 - 40.
    No
    thank you.

    Target is the place where people pay more, so they don't have to go to Walmart. :V

    There was always something eerie about Target stores that creeped me out.

    Maybe because it has the layout of a Bestbuy, the prices and deals of a wannabe Walmart, and a blood red interior wrapped up in the skin of a dead Zellers.
