    What province are you in? I thought they were rolling out across the country by the end of the year.

    I'm in Ontario, but our Zellers was not selected as a location for Target. Zellers closed in January and a section of the former location is currently being renovated as "Urban Planet"

    Ah, gotcha! Sorry, I misunderstood your original post.
    We have an Urban Planet at the mall near us. Very strange styles there...It seems to be aimed at the teenage crowd. I hope my kids never shop there .
    Too bad you get that rather than Target. That sucks.

    I'll be interested when I go to Ottawa this summer, there are bunch of Zellers that will be converted to Target, and what is really interesting is that an old Sears is turning into a Nordstrom....although it's too bad they picked that location, the Bayshore Shopping Center in Nepean would have been the better location for a Nordstrom.

    Has anyone checked out the toy department at Target yet? I don't know when the Calgary stores are slated to open, but I'm curious if they'll carry the faux American Girl doll items that the American stores do - every so often I've seen other posters on this board talk about the doll armoire, or the toy horse ...

    Yes, they carry the Our Generation stuff at the Target that opened near me (in Ontario). I didn't look too carefully (I had DS with me, he wasn't interested in the doll aisles!), but I'm pretty sure I saw both the horse and the armoire. The toy section actually looked exactly the same as the ones I remember from Target in the States. The aisles seemed to be organized in the same way.

    I drove by the Market Mall location on the weekend and they appeared to be cleaning up the parking lot, which I took to be a good sign. I also spoke with someone who got a stocking job at the MM location and she let it slip that it would be open in "about 2 weeks". Can't confirm that, though. I heard the Chinook (??) location might open sooner.
