Canadian Tire announced it has finalized an agreement to acquire 12 leases, formerly held by Target Canada, for  $17.7M. The transaction is subject to the approval of the court in connection with Target Canada’s CCAA proceedings.

“We’re always on the lookout for great opportunities. We’ve been tracking certain Target properties for some time and when the opportunity came up, we moved quickly and secured virtually all of them. We chose 12 properties that fit strategically and financially into our store network,” said Michael Medline, President and CEO, Canadian Tire Corporation.
