Zellers Inc. is Canada's second-largest chain of mass merchandise discount stores, with locations in communities across Canada. A subsidiary of the Hudson's Bay Company, it currently consists of 273 locations across the country.

On January 13, 2011, Zellers announced plans to sell the leaseholds of the majority (up to 220) of its locations to Target Corporation, as the Minneapolis-based chain prepares to expand into Canada in 2013. Target is not buying the Zellers chain however, and HBC currently plans to continue operating its remaining 50-60 Zellers locations following the sale.
