In addition to a dozen former Target Canada stores it recently acquired, the home improvement retailer said it will grow to 54 stores in Canada.

Lowe's acquired 12 former Target locations as well as Target's Milton, Ont., distribution centre for $147.75 million after the company decided to close its Canadian operations.
