Toronto Star says that Target Canada will Close All 133 Stores In 4-5 months
Target said that there was just no way to make Target Canada profitable anytime soon.
“After a thorough review of our Canadian performance and careful consideration of the implications of all options, we were unable to find a realistic scenario that would get Target Canada to profitability until at least 2021.”
Canada’s 133 Target stores employ about 17,600 people, with “nearly all Target Canada-based employees receive a minimum of 16 weeks of compensation, including wages and benefits coverage for employees who are not required for the full wind-down period,” the company says.
It will cost about $500 million to $600 million in cash to shut things down, with stores remaining open during a court-supervised liquidation period.
