Target Names Starbucks Coffee Retailer for Canada Stores

TORONTO, February 15, 2012 – Target’s Canadian guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the Starbucks experience while shopping as a result of a new agreement between Target Canada Co. and Starbucks Coffee Canada, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, the majority of the 125 – 135 Target locations across Canada will feature Starbucks licensed stores.

“Starbucks has been a valued partner for more than 12 years and an integral part of the Target guest experience in the U.S.,” said John Morioka, senior vice president of merchandising, Target Canada.

“Our goal is to bring the true Target brand shopping experience to our Canadian guests, so expanding our relationship with Starbucks as we enter the Canadian marketplace is a natural fit.” 

Starbucks store openings will coincide with Target’s entrance into the Canadian market beginning in spring of 2013.  In addition to offering guests their favourite customized beverages, many stores will have breakfast and lunch sandwich selections, as well as whole bean coffee and Starbucks VIA Ready Brew offerings, and other merchandise.
