Target To Close All Stores In Canada

There’s some bad news for those of you that may have pre-ordered Amiibo in store at Target Canada as the retailer has announced that it is closing all 133 stores in Canada. The move was blamed on poor supply chain management decisions and also a bad pricing strategy. I’m not sure when they’re closing, but you’ve got to feel sorry for all those staff that are facing redundancy.

Thanks, Eric

Canada Won’t Be Getting Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire At Same Time As US

JoeM86 from the NeoGAF forums has done a little digging and it appears as though Canada won’t be receiving Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at the same time as the United States. Gamers in the US will get the game on November 21st and Europe will get the game on November 28th. It’s possible Canada will get it at the same time as Europe, but it’s not confirmed.

Thanks to those who sent this in.
