Discount retailer Target says it will open 33 additional Canadian stores next month, including its first locations in New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Newfoundland.

The U.S. chain has been expanding across the country since March, when it opened its first Canadian locations in Ontario.

Target said Monday that it's preparing for openings in Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John, N.B., as part of a 31-store blitz on Nov. 13.
