Well Target, it’s been nice knowing ya.
The company announced it will close all stores by April 12, after having originally stated that it would probably hang on until May. If you haven’t been following, liquidation sales are now at 50-70 per cent off, but there are still ways to save way, way more. The CBC reports that one Target manager said he will be featuring 90 per cent discounts on its final day and that prices will be slashed to 98 per cent off during the last two hours. Other stores, we imagine, will follow suit.
Additionally, some stores may stay open past the 12th as part of the company’s fixture sales. When they said “everything must go,” they meant it. Store shelves, lighting, office supplies and more all have to be sold.
Meanwhile, Target Canada’s three distribution centres and its headquarters have already been shut down.
“We are pleased with the results of the liquidation sales to date and the speed at which we have moved through the wind-down process,” Target Canada CEO Aaron Alt said in a statement. “The court-approved real estate sales process is underway and is expected to be completed by the end of June 2015.”
You heard the man. Now get out there and save!
