Winnipeg's Grant Park Target and Brandon's Target are on the list of locations the retail giant plans to close next week.

The Southdale store closed on Sunday, March 22.

The two remaining Target stores one at Kildonan Place Shopping Centre and the other at Polo Park are still open - for now. 

The closures will leave just 55 locations - fewer than half its total stores - still open to the Canadian public. 

The U.S.-based company is expected to shut down all its Canadian operations by mid-May, putting about 17,600 employees out of work.
