    Well I guess we will see - since Kmart died, who knows what this will mean. I guess maybe this is why Zellers stores have kicked it up a notch.

    My Canadian work-friends are more excited about Marshall's opening up stores in Canada this spring:

    When they come down to the US, they always go to Marshalls.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    Target>>>>>>>Marshalls in this cross-border shopper's opinion

    So long as they stock the same stuff as their US stores, this is good news indeed. I've always had great finds, esp. in casual clothes, whenever I've shopped at Target in the US.

    Hmmm ... this could be interesting as I heard something about this on the local radio station and not sure if they mentioned that our local store may be one of those turning into a Target store. My sister manages the restaurant of the local Zellers and I'm not sure what that will mean for her. She needs the income.
    Crazy about sports!

    Target has similar restaurants, right?

    I like Zeller's. I bought my patio furniture, rice cooker and clothes hangers at Zeller's when I recently bought my place. RIP.

    But yay Target! Really looking forward to it!

    ^ From what I understand, Zellers isn't completely going away, at least not just yet -- some locations are not being bought ('tho in those cases they're probably the unprofitable ones so likely to be closed anyway), but Target will be leasing back other locations to Zellers.

    I've had some successful shopping experiences at Zellers in the past, but haven't shopped there in ages because of their appalling checkout and floor service. There are some things I'm just not willing to do for a bargain, and being treated like I'm inconveniencing store staff is one of them.

    Zellers is . Target is . But my Canadian relatives are eagerly wondering when Burlington Coat Factory will enter Canada.
    Creating drama!

    Stopped shopping at Zellers and Wal-Mart years ago, so I welcome Target.

    I've noticed this too. A couple years ago I wouldn't have stepped foot in our local zellers, but I actually did a lot of my Christmas shopping there this year and have bought quite a few baby things.. including our crib, dresser and change table set which we paid $200 for and our play pen which was $99. We've mostly been looking at baby/kids clothes but I've been quiet impressed!

    That said it wouldn't suprise me if Target took that one over only because they already have a "mini" Target in the mall which just carries clothes. I'm suspecting that they'll move into the Zellers location and expand into a full Target. That I would be excited about lol.

    Zeller's has floor staff? Who knew? I agree their checkout service is terrible (in my experience).

    I try to go to Zellers every so often and always leave empty handed because they either didn't have what I wanted or it was way more than it would be elsewhere.

    I like this news, but just would hpe they'd keep some zellers around. I always found that if I wanted stuff from the Bay( don't mean clothing), I'd go to Zellers and it would be cheaper than at the Bay. And I liked the fact no one was around to help me...I hate when they ask you if you need help!

    That said, I like Target, from what I remember of the couple of times I've been there on my forays into the States. It's funny because just yesterday I was reading that some American stores were looking to come here because of how well our economy fared compared theirs and that was the one I hoped for the most...and the next day it comes true!!

    If moveon.org is the voice screaming to boycott Target, I will be going out of my way to give them as much business as I can.

    Ok, fine, you get Target. Now give us Canadian Tire and we'll call it even.
