Starbucks to partner with Target for historic Canadian expansion

Author:

Starbucks Corp. plans to open 150 new locations across Canada this year -- the biggest expansion in the company's history, the National Post reports. The Seattle-based coffee chain will open many new outlets inside Target Canada's new stores, but the exact number is still unclear.

The Minneapolis-based retailer is set to make its Canadian debut next month. Target plans to open 125 to 135 stores over the next two years.

Target announced last February that Starbucks would be featured in the majority of its Canadian stores.

“Starbucks has been a valued partner for more than 12 years and an integral part of the Target guest experience in the U.S.,” John Morioka, senior vice president of merchandising of Target Canada, said in a news release. “Our goal is to bring the true Target brand shopping experience to our Canadian guests, so expanding our relationship with Starbucks as we enter the Canadian marketplace is a natural fit.”
