Coquitlam Centre will be one of 15 B.C. new Target locations, the U.S-based mass retailer announced this week.
The company, which first announced it will be opening in the country in January, plans to open 100 stores in Zellers stores in all ten provinces beginning in early 2013.
However, the news hasn't trickled down locally as yet. Coquitlam Centre general manager Franca Aere said Thursday she hadn't received official word, but admitted she suspected Coquitlam would be chosen because it's a central location.
Each Target store in Canada is expected to employ 150 to 200 team members.
