Target Corp. says three Ottawa stores are among those that it will open in a larger round of locations beginning in March or April 2013.
Meadowlands Shopping Centre, Hazeldean Mall and 1055 St. Laurent Blvd. are the Ottawa locations that will open Targets.
In late March, Target also disclosed a location in Gatineau, at Les Galeries Gatineau, will open in fall 2013.
The U.S. department store retailer acquired 189 Zellers sites across the country and plans to convert between 125 and 135 of those into Targets.
Target recently reported its first-quarter profit increased 1.2 per cent to $697 million. It also raised its forecast for the fiscal year because of better sales prospects in food and fashions.
Three other locations slated to open in the region – Bayshore Shopping Centre, Place D'Orleans and RioCan St. Laurent – have not yet released opening dates.
Correction: This story replaces an earlier version containing an incorrect location of the store at 1055 St. Laurent Blvd. Target subsequently issued a statement clarifying the location.
