NEW YORK — Target is setting up three distribution centers in Canada in preparation for its debut north of the border, according to a report in The Globe and Mail.
Although the retailer could have supplied the stores from its U.S. warehouses, it chose to set up a network specifically for its Canadian operations, the report said, with DCs planned for Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Target is set to open as many as 150 stores in Canada by 2013, the first leg of its expansion into Canada after its $1.8 billion deal to buy Zellers stores from Hudson’s Bay Co.
