MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Target is pleased to announce the official grand opening of its Toronto Stockyards store on March 14.

"This Stockyards location was built from the ground up, providing us with the opportunity to build a prototypical Target store in terms of design and layout," said Tony Fisher, president, Target Canada. "We look forward to celebrating the grand opening of this brand new store, which further reinforces our continued investment in the Canadian market and our commitment to bringing the Target brand experience to guests across the country."
