It’s no surprise how much I am going to miss Target in Canada. When I first heard the news they were coming in 2011 (and when they finally arrived) I was ecstatic. Forward to two years later I am devastated by their sudden departure. I LOVE Target. It was my go-to place for practically everything, from exclusive brands sold at Target to their $1 section.
I’m not one to compare competitors as they are each to their own. However, there are some things I liked slightly more coming from Target, mainly fashion and beauty related. As mentioned earlier, exclusive brands that cannot be found elsewhere such as Sonia Kashuk and Pixi, I had heard such wonderful reviews on such brands that I needed to get my hands on them asap!
When it came to clothing, not only were they fashion forward but also in exceptional quality. There were also designer collaborations which no one misses out on (Hello? Remember: Phillip Lim, Peter Pilotto, Altuzarra!?). And thanks to Target landing exclusive rights to the brand from Roots, Beaver Canoe returned to the scene!
I could go on, but this goes to show how much I am going to miss Target in Canada.
Here were a few items picked throughout the liquidation period:
Merona Cocoon Open Cardigan. Gilligan & O’Malley Satin Wrap. Merona Crepe Blouse
Mossimo Supply Co. Black Fedora Hat with Braided Sash and Wide Brim. Merona Casual Socks and Shoe Liners
Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Brush Couture 5 piece set
Sonia Kashuk Pearlescence Long Wear Crème Shadow (REVIEW). Sonia Kashuk Liquid Light Concealer. Sonia Kashuk Core Tools Angled Eye Shadow Brush No. 108.
Room Essentials 100% Cotton Washcloths. Threshold Small Platter. Range Kleen Drip Bowls. Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scour Pads. Silikomart Small Rose Silicone Baking Mold
All items purchased were either something I spotted and loved, a repurchase or miscellaneous knick-knacks I found while browsing around. But let me know in the comments: Did you find anything during the liquidation period? What will you miss most about Target? Do you hope for a comeback in the near future or shipping to Canada?
Goodbye Target, you’ll be missed. See you stateside!
