Say It's So - Target is Coming to Canada!!

BF sent me a message tonight asking if I'd heard the news? It can't be, can it? After years of making Target a destination of choice, not just for myself but many Canadians who head across the border in search of selection and deals, Target is coming to Canada!!

That's right, my bloggy-friends south of the 49th, Target does not exist in Canada. {Insert shocked gasp here} We have a significantly less-popular, similar department store called Zellars. Personally, I like shopping at Zellars.  I spent the majority of my life in towns where this was the ONLY department store. The stores were well looked after, clean and had great selection. Over the years, I came to realize that not all their stores are quite so nice. I have to admit, I am a little happy-sad. I was hoping Zellars was reinventing themselves as the hip, Canadian version of Target.

Not so. According to, Target purchased 220 Zellars locations and stores will start opening in 2013.

All this Savvy Homegirl has to say is "hurry up and get here"!! Just make sure you keep the awesome, discount Jules & Julia jewelry line carried by Zellars (that's my secret to great, value-priced accessories).


  1. I share your same excitement but are also sad to see Zellers go :( I totally agree that I hope they continue to carry the Jules&Julia line as well, I LOVE the Alfred Sung line- would love if they continued that too!

  2. Wowza! And I was excited when we got a Target within a ten-minute drive instead of a 20 minute drive, haha. But beware- not all Targets are created equal. I hope you get a good one near you!
