When we received our invites for the Media Launch of Target in Canada at the Danforth location we had no idea what to expect. Perhaps a tour of the store? A presentation from Target President Tony Fisher? Little did we know that we’d be rubbing elbows with Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively!
Target is launching 21 stores in Ontario as of today, March 28. Hoping to be a “one-stop shopping destination”, the stores will provide everything from fashion, grocery, home dé©cor and beauty. The majority of the locations will have a Starbucks and in-store pharmacy.
Last night’s launch brought in some of the biggest celebrities from the US and Canada, including the beautiful A-list actresses we mentioned before, as well as Elisha Cuthbert and fiancé© Dion Phaneuf, Olympians Roz Groenwoud and Adam Van Koeverden, rapper Kardinal Offishall, singer Karl Wolf and TV personality Dan Levy.
Each of them spent time browsing the aisles of the store, picking out their favourite items for their children, friends and family. We caught Sara Jessica Parker loading up on crafts for her kids, Marion, James and Tabitha. Blake Lively was browsing the baby shoe isle… Interesting!
If Canadians weren’t already excited about Target’s launch, we are sure the extra media attention from the launch will perk them up even more.
