As soon as I heard the red bullseye was going to be hitting Ottawa, my little heart skipped a beat. At last it has arrived to Ottawa and opened it's doors. Swoon! Anytime I'm in the U.S. I hit Target so I've been waiting for it's doors to open on this side of the border.
This week I ventured into the store with two of the three kiddies in tow. Since Target's arrival in Canada, the store has received quite a bit of criticism that the products weren't as good as what is offered in the U.S. stores and that the prices weren't comparable. I toured the store and have to say that I was really impressed with what they have brought to Canada as well as the prices. Yup, some of the items weren't dirt cheap BUT a lot of the prices were really good with lots of options on style.
I really liked the home décor items. The patterns were right on trend, there were many "knock-off" versions of much higher priced items from other stores and there was a ton of selection.
Pretty side tables...
I thought these outdoor items were pretty and fall-like...
Need a slipper chair? Look at these fab patterns??
Great towel selection!
You can find this style of stool in many other high end home design stores. You can get it at target for $99...fab.
These baskets could be used for so many things. How cute would these look in a playroom, labeled using chalk? Or, "his" and "hers" laundry? yes!
Although I didn't come home with any home décor items (hard to believe), I have my eye on this beige ottoman with the nail head trim, that I think would look fab in our tv room. It's only $69.99, has storage and the only reason it didn't come home with me is because I didn't have room to put it in my cart with the two kiddies ;)
I did leave with a few grocery items, a hat and mitts for our middle guy and these fresh.fabulous.sophisticated boots. They're brown, tall, have a fab zipper up the back and we're only $49.99!! Thank you Target!
Oh AND...they have a Starbucks in the store. You had me at "Skinny-extra hot-cinnamon dolce latte"!
Keep it Beautiful.
