#TORONTOBOUND: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE & TRACE AYALA AT THE BAY IN TORONTO FOR WILLIAM RAST
Founded in 2006 by Megastar Justin Timberlake and his Best Friend Trace Ayala, Fashion Label William Rast is set to debut at The Bay in Toronto and the Duo are set to ring-in the occasion with an appearance at the Queen Street location on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 4:00 PM. The Line collaborated in late 2010 with Discount Retailer Target in the U.S. for an exclusive Collection.
The Store Tweeted earlier this evening about the Appearance and although we’re unsure if it’s an Autograph Signing or simply an appearance, Timberlake appears to have a gap in his schedule that day as he co-headlines with Jay-Z on their The Legends of Summer Tour with a Show at Rogers Centre the following night, giving him an opportunity to promote the Line. Furthermore, this is an ultra-rare chance for Toronto Fans to see Timberlake up-close!
More details to come…

TARGET CANADA LAUNCHES IN TORONTO
Finally! Target has finally arrived in Toronto and was I ever ready! Torontonians still have to venture a little outside the Downtown Core to witness the amazingness that is Target with two brand new locations: East York Town Centre and Centrepoint Mall doing their soft launches. Shoppers World Danforth also will be welcoming its ownlocation on Thursday, March 28, 2013 too!
I had the pleasure of visiting the Centrepoint Mall location up in North York earlier today, which was all abuzz with Staff eagerly taking notes from Management as Shoppers’ eyes were filled with wonder, navigating its two floors. Although many shelves were still empty with space, presumably to be filled with more stock in coming weeks, the experience was pleasant even though a few questions about where to find specific items like Target‘s Roots Collection couldn’t be answered immediately by Staff. I learned however, that Staff from other stores were there temporarily to gain experience for their own respective location launches.
Fans of Target‘s Archer’s Farm line of Edibles might be slightly disappointed with a lack of selection up north (I could only find Fruit Snacks among the few offerings) , but hopefully this will improve soon.

In total, 124 Target stores will be opening across Canada this year, with four to open here in the City between March and April at Centre Point Mall, Cloverdale Mall, East York Town Centre and Shoppers World.
