Target's New CEO Is About to Make a Big Decision on the Retailer's Future - Losing $2.5B since entering Canada  New Target Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell is poised to make one of the biggest decisions of his professional career: whether to pull his new employer completely out of Canada, where it currently has 133 stores. The former Wal-Mart and PepsiCo exec foreshadowed that Target would communicate its vision for its future "early next year" following a thorough review of both the Canadian and U.S. businesses. That would suggest the fate of Target Canada will be shared at the very latest on the company's fourth-quarter earnings call on Feb. 25.

Suspected robber shot by security guard at Toronto jewelry store  A man with a gun was believed to be preparing to rob a jewelry store in Toronto when he was confronted by a security guard and shot on Thursday afternoon, police say. The incident unfolded at a plaza in the Eglinton Avenue East and Warden Avenue area, which is close to a courthouse. According to Toronto police, a male with a firearm walked into the Jewellery Exchange at 1921 Eglinton Ave. E., at about 2 p.m. Det. Dave Liska said the security guard spotted the man attempting to rob one of the jewellers inside the premises. "He was confronted by an armed security guard who was already on the site and he was ultimately shot," Liska told reporters on Thursday evening. The security guard fired shots both fired inside and outside the store. Initial reports suggested that the security guard and the wounded man had exchanged fire, but that did not appear as certain hours later. "I am not sure if the suspect fired any shots, however, a weapon was recovered," Liska said.
