Target vs. Walmart
If you were expecting a shopper's Valhalla with the arrival in Canada of Target, prepare to be merely mildly interested if not disappointed. The discount retailer has already publicly stated that it intends to price its merchandise in line with other Canadian retailers, not American ones.

Nevertheless, Target presents new competition for Walmart—and newish options for shoppers—so we've pulled together a collection of comparable store items (mostly house brands) to help you put the prices to the test.
