Target Takeover

By Daniel Sidlofsky

As the excitement of Target’s arrival bubbles throughout Canada, not everyone is joining in. Was the sale of Zellers’ leases to the Target Corporation fair to those who kept Canada’s famed department store alive? Are the over ten thousand Zellers jobs estimated to be lost a fair price for a supposedly superior shopping experience? With more than two hundred stores being closed, Zellers employees feel as if they are being kicked to the curb.

Target is one of the world’s most successful retailers and many Canadians are excited about shopping in new store locations that offer a weekly ad, coupons, regular store hours and the company’s popular redcard.

Target will soon be hiring in Canada and that is a good thing. But Target can be an even stronger force in our community by giving Zellers workers the respect they deserve. With your help, Target can be a leader in creating better, fairer jobs that benefit our communities today and well into the future.
