Target is coming to Langley.

Target Corporation confirmed on Feb. 2 that it will set up shop where Zellers is currently located in Willowbrook Shopping Centre.

The company bought the leasehold interest in the Zellers site, and plans to open the store next year.

It will be one of between 125 to 135 Target shops in Canada.

The Minneapolis-based corporation will spent between $10 million to $11 million to remodel each facility in order to bring the full Target brand to Canadian communities.
