I think it's hard to find a good replacement for Target - some stores feature similar items but at a much higher price point, while other stores may match Target prices, but the quality is not the same. As it would be impossible to cover all of Target's products, I've selected a few of their most popular categories below.
Beauty Products: This is difficult because Target carries some brands that are difficult to find elsewhere in Canada (such as NYX and ELF) and Target-exclusives (such as Pixi Beauty and Sonia Kashuk). NYX is also available at Rexall/Pharmaprix stores while random ELF products have been spotted at Winners and Dollarama. For a large selection of drugstore makeup, try Real Canadian Superstore, Walmart and Shoppers Drugmart.
