Target’s Vernon presence is drawing to an end and efforts to fill that vacant space continue.
The last business day for Target’s outlet at the Village Green Centre is Monday as part of its plans to abandon the Canadian market.
“We remain committed to delivering the best possible retail experience in all of the communities we serve and we are continuing to work to manage transitions in the most appropriate way for each property affected by the Target announcement,” said Shaun Little, corporate communications director for Bentall Kennedy, which owns the Village Green Centre.
“Beyond this, I have no further information to relay at present regarding any of the properties managed by Bentall Kennedy within which Target had been a tenant.”
Target Canada opened in the former 103,000-square-foot Zellers location at the Village Green Centre in May 2013.
It was in January, that Target announced that it would close all 133 stores in Canada, impacting 17,600 employees.
The Vernon Target has been the focus of a liquidation sale for more than a month.
