Target Canada winds down operations

First wave of closures takes place next week with 16 stores across Canada

Target Canada says it will close 16 locations next week, the first wave of closures as the U.S. retailer winds down its operations across the country.

Employees at each store will be notified about 10 days before the final day of business, said company representative Molly Snyder.

The plans call for the closure of eight stores in Ontario, three in Alberta, two in B.C., two in Quebec and one store in Manitoba.

Target Corp., the parent company headquartered in Minneapolis, Mn., announced in January that it would shutter its 133 stores across the country after determining it would take years to turn a profit.

Here's a list of the stores:
