"The Target Road Trip was about getting to know our Canadian guests and
sharing something special with them along the way," said Livia Zufferli,
director, Marketing, Target Canada. "We are so excited to bring home one of
Canada's newest rising stars, Carly Rae Jepsen, to her hometown on the west
coast to help spread some holiday cheer this season."
"I'm so grateful to be back home in Mission where I've received such strong
support from day one," said Jepsen. "Target is known for supporting their
local communities and I'm thrilled to be a part of their tour for their stop
in Mission so I can help to do the same."
The Target Road Trip launched in Halifax, Nova Scotia on November 30 and has
since stopped in numerous communities including Quebec City, Toronto, North
Bay and Sudbury - to name just a few. The bus will continue west after the

Carly Rae Jepsen is a two-time Grammy nominated recording artist and
singer-songwriter from Mission, British Columbia. Although she's been an
established artist in Canada for several years — with a third-place finish
on Canadian Idol, two gold singles, two albums, and two Juno Award nominations
to her name — Jepsen was a virtual unknown in the U.S. when "Call Me Maybe"
hit it big. The 5x-platinum "Call Me Maybe" has sold more than 10 million
singles worldwide and climbed to No. 1 in more than 37 countries, including
the U.S. where it spent a record-breaking nine weeks atop the Billboard Hot
Target plans to open 124 stores across Canada starting in March/April 2013.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) serves guests at 1,782 stores
across the United States and at Target.com. The company plans to open its
first stores in Canada in 2013. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its
profit through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more
than $4 million a week. For more information about Target's commitment to
