There has been a lot of talk over the last few months that American retail giant Target might be coming to Canada. However, due to a court battle involving another company that holds the trademark for the Target name in Canada their entry into our market could be a few years away. I came across this forum the other day and realized how many Canadians wish they could shop on Target’s online store. So for all of you who have been looking for a way I decided to write this post to inform you of how you can! The majority of Canadians think that there is only one option if we wish to buy products from Target, going to one of their over 1700 retail locations across the United States. I’m here to offer another solution to every Canadian looking to shop on Target.com….
Target (like most large retail chains) has a much greater selection online than in-store. So Canadians are currently left out in the cold when it comes to their great online selection and super savings. Using Kinek’s network of border package pick up locations you can ship products from Target.com to any KinekPoint location across the US/Canadian border. When the package arrives you will receive a notification via email and sms text message. You have up to 30 days to pick up your package and most KinekPoints only charge $5 per package. This ensures you’ll have plenty of time to make it across the border to pickup your order. It is then up to you to declare your purchases to customs on the way back across the border, but if you have any questions about border fees you can look under the customs-duties-taxes section of this website for more info. Whether you live near the border or make frequent trips (or the occasional one) to the States this is a great way around the lack of available shipping to Canada from Target’s online store.
