Ase Study of Targets Canadian operation

In 2011, Target announced it would purchase up to 220 of the lease agreements once held by Zellers (a subsidiary of HBC) throughout Canada. The former Zellers employees were laid off and Target began the long process of renovating the former Zellers locations to fit the Target brand image.

In the spring of 2013, Target started opening their new stores. By the end of 2013, most of the locations had opened throughout the nation. Unfortunately, the company had lost nearly $1 Billion by the end of the year in its Canadian operations alone.

IN THE CASE STUDY, evaluate whether Target made mistakes during its northern expansion a or if these are merely growing pains that the company will get through without making changes. Should the company continue with further expansion? Was it a mistake to expand into the Canadian market in the first place?

Please use proper case study format for the paper.
