Another major retail chain has confirmed its arrival in Kelowna in the summer of 2013.
Target will be located in the Orchard Park Plaza shopping centre, taking over the space currently occupied by Zellers.
Besides being one of the largest retail outlets in North America, Target’s new store here will create 150 to 200 jobs, and bring a $10 million investment to upgrade the existing Zellers store space.
Overall, Target announced last year plans to open 125 to 135 stores across Canada mostly where Zellers stores currently operate, the majority of those coming on stream in 2013.
