    While I'm glad to hear that you had been able to buy Target exclusives at Zellers, I hate to hear that Zellers is closing... I'd heard that some of the Zellers stores will be reopening as Target but others would close.

    Thank you for the update about Zellers.

    The one in my town is going changing to a Target. Should start seeing massive clearances shortly...hopefully some stuff I can take advantage of lol. From what I have heard, all the Zellers employees working there will be transitioned over to the Target store if they wish to stick around so that's also good news.

    The one in the next town over (10 minute drive) should also be changing over to a target.

    well bad news for me...I just checked the Target Canada website (target.ca) to see store locations and sadly neither of the 2 nearest Zellers in my area are being turned to Targets

    I feel bad for all the employees from the two Zellers that will be closing down in march 2013. They are just getting let go

    I am quite surprised that there isn't one opening in the region as this region has Canada's larget airforce base and would have been quite a nice customer base.

    Nearest ones will be either 45minutes/1hour to the east ways (Kingston, Ontario) or west ways (Oshawa or further Toronto).

    How about canon? I understand what it means, but what do the initials stand for, or where did it originate from?

    Good question, TopherDawg...

    From Wikipedia, canon refers to "the overall set of storylines, premises, settings, and characters offered by the source media text".[1] In this sense, canon is "the original work from which the fan fiction author borrows,"[2] or "the original media on which the fan fictions are based."

    The term first was used to in reference to The Bible.

    Applying that to the Cars movies, Cars that are canon appear as diecasts as they appear in the movies... so by theory, some of the released diecasts are technically not canon... The Deluxe Holley Shiftwell is one of them.

    As far as I know, it is not an abbreviation for anything.

    What does the EAA at the end of the # on the bottom of a car stand for?

    Example: 3021EAA

    EAA is the Factory code - the EAA factory... the 3021 means the Car was produced (made) on the 302nd day of 2011.

    Other factories have had codes of EA and EAB.
