Target always appealed to me because of the american selection of groceries and as a kid they had one of the better toy selections. I don't expect much from the Canadian version.

First time yesterday, walked in to Target in Canada at Metrotown. Looked around and compared prices to items that I already bought earlier at Superstore.

Of all the items I compared.none of them could beat the price I paid at Superstore.

I still think shopping at US Target is much better.

Target at Coq Ctr is pretty much the same shit, just a prettier store. Actually, it's worse cause the 2/3 times I've been there, they were out of stock on sale items, on the first day. Zellers had better sales too, so far - we'll see how it goes.

I went to Target in Surrey today, nothing special imo. US Target is still a lot better in terms of variety and pricing.

I've given Target a chance over the past few months, but it's nowhere near what I grew used to in the States. The Canadian version is just a slightly nicer looking Walmart. No good deals and none of the house brands and specialty items I love to get down south.

I still prefer Zellers over Canadian Target.

Someone needs to bring back K-Mart and their Blue Light specials

I go to Fujiya right when they open. Sushi and bento is fresh and nobody in the lineup. Only bad thing is, all the eye candy go there between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm and the curry is never ready at opening.


Back on topic. Target is overrated. No savings to be had. Walmart is also overrated. I only go there when they have a loss leader in their weekly flyer. Better lighting, LOL. To save money, I will bring wind up flashlight with me.
Haha we could. My gf loves going after work like between 500-600 time frame and it drives me insane!

Go before closing and get sushi and bento at half price. It's not on all the time, but I think we should convince jtrinh to post a message on RS whenever it looks like they will go on sale.

Now there's a good reason to have a RS mini meet. Half price sushi meet. The rice is pretty hard by that time, though. And, you have to fight off the old Chinese women for hte good stuff, LOLOLOLOL.

I like the home decor and cosemetic section at Target. It's a nice alternative to Home Sense and awesome makeup brands from the States....:3

Unless it's something on sale there pricing is probably close to safeway price on food items, not cheap at all. It's good if you're going after particular sale items but other then that the Target stores here have been a big disappointment for me.

I just went to the Lansdowne location after work today. Definitely a lot of selection and much cleaner / organized than the older Zellers. As for the price, I do notice a bit cheaper depending on the items

For toys, Target's prices are far better than ToysRUs prices.

They have half-off Christmas decorations this week. I picked up a 7 ft tree from Target for $25. Pretty decent deal for a tree before Christmas.

lowly target employee here, i gotta say the "best" stuff we have at the lansdowne is probably cosmetics, bedding/pillows, toys and like home deco shit. i doubt the canadian targets' are gonna be as good as the ones down south cus of diff regulations and crap (no spicy cheetos ) and from what ive peeked around through, i dont think its gonna do too bad lol. but if the walmart does get build near by theres gonna be some crazy ass blood vs crip of retail stores shit going on

^ same lol. stores are pretty empty due to trucking problems still, prob be a bit more selection later on. it wont be the same as an american target, but in my opinion much better than zellers/sears. i can probably do all my christmas shopping at target alone, as they have a lot of stuff you wouldnt find at other places, ie. marvel comics glasses, some gift sets etc. ironically the toy section is nostalgia. power rangers, tmnt, gi joe, transformers are all back, and popular.
