Tonight I finally got the chance to check out the new target that has just hit Canada!! I loved the targets in the states, so I was really looking forward to finally having one in our home town. Now I did go with the expectation it would not be the same as the states version. I had heard mixed reviews, so I definitely went with an open mind. I think they are still in the beginning stages of the store, meaning more shipments and new merchandise will be coming – so I am excited to see the store progress over the next few months.
I thought they had great clothes, bathing suits, shoes, kid clothes, home decor, dog stuff and definitely great gift wrapping/stationary. My only real disappointment was with their holiday selection. I thought for sure they would have a huge Easter display or aisle, but there was really nothing. I am hoping that is just because they opened to close to the holiday.
Here is a little glimpse into the store:
They had super cute bathing suits!! Royal blue was a prominent colour in the women’s section … which I am really loving right now!!
They also had a ton of neon & cute pastel skinnies, which you all probably know I love
They had tons of bright coloured scarves of all different patterns – mostly around the $16 range
Now on to the home decor….
I love these baskets below with the chalkboard tags
I really like this lamp with the clear base! And I love that you can buy the base and shades seperately.
Really love these stools, but thought they were a little overpriced @ $79 each
They had really nice throw blankets ranging from $16 – $29
They had 2 really nice floor lamps that I loved. This one below with the chunky base, and a white one. I thought they were reasonably priced at $79 each.
I was happy to see that all the stationary/ gift wrapping was similar to the states with a wide range of products. I absolutely LOVE all the bright colours they are using!!!
I thought the prices for gift bags were great too! Some were as little as 50 cents!!
Now onto the shoes…. I was extremely happy with the selection of flats & sandals – but refrained from buying any yet as I just can’t justify it when there is still damn SNOW o the ground!!!
So what did I buy you ask??
I got some adorable baby clothes for an upcoming shower, snacks and food for my nephew and niece coming over this weekend and then a few treats for myself I got two super cute maxi dresses for summer! Each $20
And I restrained myself from the shoes, but I will Definitely be going back…
Here are the dresses
Anyways, that is just my little review on the new Target Canada!! I was really happy with it, and super glad it is here! I realize it might not be the exact same as the states, but hey – it definitely beats walmart!!!!!!!!
