Please let me know if there is a Target market in Canada, so that those of you in Canada can also have a file.
These Target stores all closed back in May:
Target just announced they will be closing all Canadian locations.
Target has announced that it is closing all 133 Canadian stores and putting 17,000 people out to the unemployment lines.
Seems that they totally failed to do their homework and due diligence. They underestimated the Canadian competition and gave us Canadians stores with higher prices, insufficient stock and less selection than we we had seen in their US stores.
That should make this file a bit easier to work on.
I'll be watching this and eventually remove all the Canadian stores from the POI files.
they missed their target?
News said they would have all stores closed in 4 to 6 months.
Target Canada announced this morning (Thursday, January 15, 2015) that they are CLOSING ALL 133 CANADIAN STORES. I believe from what I heard, They will be gone before spring. Don't put any time into creating POI for Canadian locations. Torontostar.com can be used to verify.

Lithonia, GA #1909
Clinton, IA #932
Calumet City, IL #846

Could they be removed? Thank you!
Thanks for the heads-up. I've removed these 8 stores from both files and uploaded them to the site.
I'll remove the 11 stores on Feb. 1.
And all the Canadian Target stores closed, every single store.
But maybe we will finally get some decent prices on the liquidation sales!
High prices, bare shelves, messy stores, how did they ever think they could succeed with that formula?
Target closed 11 underperforming stores across 8 states on Feb 1, 2015. These locations have been removed from the POI files.
Today's update added 2 new stores: Hawaii & Massachusetts.
Knowing that many of the Canadian stores have closed with the remainder soon to close, I plan on removing those entries the latter part of April. If you want to keep the Canadian locations for any reason, you might want to archive this latest file for future reference.
Target released this statement yesterday:
I will update the Target files on Apr. 12.
All stores located in Canada have been removed from both the csv and gpx files.
Added 9 new stores - CA(4), HI, IL, MA, MN, TX.
Some of these stores are new, smaller format layouts - TargetExpress and CityTarget. They are noted in the name field.
Target will also be closing some stores the end of January, 2016. I will update the files at that time.
Target closed 13 stores on Jan 30, 2016, including mine in FL.
Here is the complete list:
this is useful for me
Target Corp. has a problem in its grocery aisles: Shoppers aren’t visiting often enough to buy the retailer’s fresh meat, fruits and vegetables before they spoil.
Perishable foods, which usually are the big traffic drivers at most grocery stores, have been a drag on Target’s profits, according to people familiar with the matter. And in May, Target said customers were making fewer trips for smaller purchases. “We have seen some trip erosion with guests coming in for that fill-in trip,” CEO Brian Cornell said on a conference call
Lauren Shaber, who lives in Tualatin, Ore., said she visits Target once or twice a month for home décor, cleaning supplies and other merchandise. While there, she walks through the food aisles and picks up “whatever catches my eye,” the 24-year-old said. “But I don’t go out of my way to do grocery shopping at Target because there are so many other specialty stores.”
Since he took over in 2014, Cornell has made several efforts to revamp the grocery business, which accounts for a fifth of Target’s revenue, or $18.5 billion in annual sales. The company changed leadership, added more organic and gluten-free items and invested in store design. But Target TGT, -0.18% has warned that overall sales at existing stores could decline 2% in its second quarter, which it is slated to report Wednesday.
Executives have admitted that the grocery assortment has been lacking. “We sit in the middle,” John Mulligan, the company’s chief operating officer, said in March 2015. ”We’re not really special and we’re not a full grocery. And so we’re sitting in the middle of no man’s land.”
We're supposed to be surprised?
