Target Closing All Canadian Stores

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.

And all the Canadian Target

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?

11 Closed Stores Removed

Target closed 11 underperforming stores across 8 states on Feb 1, 2015. These locations have been removed from the POI files.

2 New Stores Added

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’s Grocery Business Being Spoiled By Fewer Shoppers

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.”
