Walmart might have Happy Meals, but Target Canada will have venti chai lattes

The much-anticipated Target Canada has announced it will be partnering with Starbucks beginning in spring 2013. Senior vice-president of merchandising for Target Canada John Morioka says the company’s goal is to bring the “true Target shopping experience to Canadian guests, so expanding [the] relationship with Starbucks is a natural fit.” Most of the 135 Canadian stores will include a Starbucks outlet, continuing in the 12-year American tradition of selling frappuccinos to people who still say things like “Tar-jay” in the comfort of a Target store.
