The massive US retail store giant Target, will be opening it’s first store in Saskatoon 2013. The Mall at Lawson Heights will be the first Target location in Saskatchewan. In 2011 Target announced that it had purchased the lease rights of over 200 Zeller stores across Canada. Overall Target will be spending 1.8 billion to move into the Canadian retail space.
In Saskatoon alone there are projected to be at least 2 more additional Targets added within the next few years at the Market Mall and Centre Mall. The first Target at Lawson Heights is scheduled to be opened in the summer of 2013. This is great for Saskatoon as it brings a new brand and ultimately competitive prices to Saskatoon residents.
As the city of Saskatoon continues to grow and expand more large scale retail outlets such as Target will continue to move into Saskatoon. This growth is directly impacted the Saskatoon real estate market and it is showing no signs of slowing down.
