Target is pulling out of Canada, and that means its Campbell River store will be closing after less than two years.
Target says it’s taken a loss of more than 2 billion dollars since expanding to Canada in 2013, with 133 stores.
Target has 4 other stores on the Island: Courtenay, Nanaimo and two in the Victoria area. There are none on the Sunshine Coast
The company says the more than 17 thousand people losing their jobs will get a minimum of 16 weeks wages and benefits.
