    Since Zellers stocked the Target Exclusives anyways, can't say it changes things much, unless the price drops. I can still pop over to Zellers and buy Burning Fallen if I felt so inclined.

    nothin' but the best for you Trailer Park Boys.

    j/k. i was trying to figure out what the big difference between a Zeller's and a Target was...other than they are different companies with the same "exclusives".

    so to me, this just feels like Best Buy leasing some of thei own buildings to say, Circuit City, with Circuit City taking over in a couple years. (i know, CC doesn't exist anymore. just an example.)

    the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Yup, Zellers has been selling Target exclusives for some time now. In fact I remember hearing several years back that Target was considering buying out Zellers. So there's actually been some kind of connection between the two companies for a while now. I remember when I heard that Target was wanting to buy Zellers, I was hoping it would actually happen since Targets tend to be a little nicer than Zellers. Pretty much every Zellers I've seen has been a mess, they don't keep things very tidy or organized at all. I've seen some messy Targets as well, but for the most part they're much nicer than Zellers.

    Hmm....I always assumed Zellers was connected to Target in some way. Is Asda and Wal-Mart connected?

    Cool. Zellers has been pretty good about getting the Target exclusives as it is but I guess this seals the deal.

    I guess this means less Canadian whine. The cheese industry is sure to suffer.

    I'm fairly sure they're owned by the same guys.

    Agreed.

    If anything it just makes it official that all Target exclusives will be released here. (not just TF stuff) I look forward to it.
