    I LOL'ed when I read that. But I feel sorry for the employees losing their jobs.

    I wasn't exactly EXPECTING them to fail miserably, especially not that quickly. But I had my doubts about the longevity of Target here. I went to a Target three times at the most, and it was very meh.

    Now I'm curious to see who will come and take Target's place. Rumours mention tons of store chains.

    Hehe... I guess Target... missed the target, amirite?

    Heard something the other day about Gold's Gym wanting to take over their locations or something.
    They better lower their memberships then if they want to increase traffic lol

    EDIT: I can't find a link anywhere! I was told my co-worker who heard it. so it could just be a silly rumor.
    I have a secret.​
    A dark, furry secret with big teeth.​
    Less a secret, really - more a wolf.

    I've never heard of Gold's Gym. ;o Though recently Walmart has said about opening 11 more stores, so I'm gonna assume they will spread out a bit which is nice. Still wondering what will take over the rest of the spots.

    Sales have finally started, although they're only doing up to 30% off. Apparently from what some people are saying is that the items they're putting on sale have just had their original price raised, so really you're not saving anything. I was really gettin' my hopes up for some good catches (like a new tv!) but guess not. T_T Regardless though, scoutin it out tonight - maybe I'll get lucky! ;3

    I heard the same. Their "sale" isn't a sale at all.

    What do they care? they will be mass liquidating all their items later on which is much easier for them. They are trying to just make money atm rather then get rid of everything at a low cost to the consumer. Because what do they care if you ever come back? you cant!

    Really, what would be the point complaining Target leaving Canada? Ah well, hopefully Lidl will come in it's place...

    That's odd. Target is a pretty major chain down in Australia, and we have plenty of competing stores. K-Mart and BigW to name two, and there are more lesser known stores in among them too.

    There must have been some pretty fierce competition, or else it just wasn't being run well.

    We'll find a reason, or else realize that we don't need one.
