B.C.’s busy retail scene soaked up most spaces vacated by TargetOctober 20, 2016 10:42 pm
Twelve of 19 former Target stores across B.C. have been filled since the U.S. retailer’s retreat from Canada last year, outpacing the national rate at which landlords have been able to fill their empty Target spaces, experts say.
In B.C., four of those vacated were taken up by Lowe’s; four by Canadian Tire; and four by Walmart, according to numbers provided by Jason Schouten, a principal with Avison Young in Vancouver.
He said the remaining seven locations in B.C. are either sitting unused or being renovated to make them suitable for other big-box retailers like Winners, Sport Chek and Marshalls
