Target To Have “Like Black Friday” Sales This Thursday

Target Canada To Close All Vancouver Stores

Just under a month ago, Target announced it would be closing all 133 of its stores across Canada and clearing its shelves.

Target is currently on the verge of receiving its court clearance for liquidation, which is set to be approved this Wednesday. According to leaked e-mails between Target staff, Target is preparing for a huge sale this Thursday.

“Thursday will be like Black Friday,” says a senior B.C human resources employee in an e-mail obtained by CBC.

Other e-mails also state that Target expects sales to double on Thursday, and plans to have all check-out lanes open this weekend.

Everything is expected to be on sale for discounted prices including store furnishings and equipment.

All 9 Target locations in metro Vancouver will participate in the liquidation sale. There’s no word on who will replace Target in the near future, but Goodlife Fitness is one of the top candidates.
