Target Canada: How a closing company can make an online stir

If you haven’t heard already (cause maybe you haven’t been online or watched tv for a couple weeks) Target Canada is closing shop in Canada. An unsuccessful leap into the Canadian market has forced the company to cut its losses and focus on their more profitable US operations.

To many Canadians, this wasn’t a surprise as those that shopped at the US stores saw a much better selection and prices. But the first thing that was on many Canadians minds was “when does the liquidation start?”. Their Twitter page was overflow with questions from users on Twitter wondering when the deals started:

And do you feel this effects the impression of Target in the US Market ?
