Kantar Retail, a consulting firm in Boston, now predicts that Target Canada will generate $3.1 billion in annual sales by 2017, about half of what the retailer is promising today.

Nevertheless, Target officials say they remain confident about Canada’s prospects.

“When I look at the enhancements we’re making and the experience our team is gaining each day,” Fisher told investors, “I’m very optimistic that Target Canada will play a significant role in Target’s future — and will achieve our goal of $6 billion in sales.”
