The U.S. chain has been expanding across the country since March, when it opened its first Canadian locations in Ontario.

Target said Monday it's preparing for openings in Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John, N.B., as part of a 31-store blitz on Nov. 13.

The other openings will be in Charlottetown, P.E.I., as well as in Corner Brook and St. John's, N.L., and communities in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.

The final two openings scheduled for 2013 will be on Nov. 22 in St. Catharines, Ont., and Sherbrooke, Que.
