Zellers is Canada's second-largest chain of mass merchandise department stores. The headquarters for Zellers are located in Brampton, Ontario. They have a mascot named "Zeddy", which is a teddy bear.

In 2011, the leaseholds of 189 Zellers stores where acquired by Target Corporation. Target acquired the leaseholds because they are expanding their stores into Canada in 2013 and 2014. HBC said that they will close most of the Zellers stores and would retire the Zellers banner from Canadian retail by March 31, 2013.[1]
