Why Target Failed. By: The Experts Of Twitter

Target loves Canada

Canadians have spoken. Since opening its first Canadian stores in March 2013, Target has battled inventory and image problems. By mid-2014, the wheels seemed like they were coming off with the firing of Tony Fisher as Target Canada CEO in May.

As a mass market chain, it’s fitting that everyone has an opinion about what Target could have done better. As an American chain expanding into Canada, there’s little nationalist pride wrapped up in this failing company, unlike, say, Hudson’s Bay or Tim Horton’s.

So Canadians don’t feel bad about ripping into the company, which was meant to bring more competition to grocery and clothing verticals.

So we open the forum to you, the people.
