retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Wall Street Journal reports that Target has reached an agreement with Canada’s Fairweather Inc. that will allow the US discounter to use its familiar bulls-eye logo when it begins opening stores there next year.

Fairweather operates 15 stores called Target Apparel, which use a similar bulls-eye logo. While they will keep the name pending a trial that could start before the end of the year, the stores will discontinue use of the logo.

Details of the deal were not disclosed.
