The story of Target starts off in 1926 with two men by the names of George Lindsay and Alex McKenzie. They opened up a store in Geelong, Victoria, that sold furnishing, fabric, and manchester. It was in 1968 that Target showed up in the store’s name. Eventually, fast forward to today, and the Target division is a mega brand that employs more than 13,000 people across Australia.

Target loves to get involved in the Australian community. After the 2020 bushfires, they launched the Target Bushfire Relief Appeal. Overall, this initiative in conjunction with Kmart raised more than 1 million dollars to go towards the cause. This was split between UnitingCare Australia, The Salvation Army, and the Australian Red Cross. The type of support this goes towards includes counselling, financial aid, and support for dealing with trauma.
