Target used to carry yarns and other crafting stuff when they first opened up, but, when they sold and then sold again and then again, they did away with all of the fun stuff. They have groceries, clothing, bikes, tvs, other electronic, but unfortunately no crafts.
Not in my neck of the woods!
Unfortunately Target does not cary yarn or fabric. Perhaps you can start by requesting it fron the target comming to your community,and ask as many of your friends as you can to contact Target and request it.
I hate Target.. their policies go totally against everything I believe in. When they banned the Salvation Army's Bell Ringers from their stores is the second thing that sealed their fate as far as I'm concerned. I refuse to go into their store or even walk past them.
It's sad but that's what big monopoly stores are all about self-serving profits.

Do the Target Stores in the US carry yarn?
Target will be taking over some of our Zellers stores on Vancouver Island, 3 of our best stores for yarn will be closing in the next 6 months for the Target overhaul.
I hope we don't loose our yarn sections.
Even WalMart doesn't carry much in the way of yarn or needles etc. in northern CA - Chico. I don't like to buy online if I can get it locally but sometimes it is impossible to get what I want at Michaels, Walmart or Joanne's. Target doesn't have anything like that here locally. I don't know about KMart tho'.
I'm not sure of Target's policy, but if you knitters or crocheters in a small town get together and approach mgmt, they may just order in yarn for you. I know certain stores in our area carry more or less diabetic foods and mixes based on what sells, there.
A really big "good luck" here. But try anyway. As the saying goes, "how can you eat an elephant? just one bite at a time".
Hi, I'm from Norfolk, Virginia USA and there are no yarn or any crafting items sold at our Target stores, wish they would sell some. I get my supplies from Michael's or Wal-mart stores. Maybe they will sell yarn there, keep your fingers cross and good luck.
I don't think there is any yarn at our Target stores in S.CA. I like them for inexpensive clothes, closet organizers, plastic storage, etc.
Laurelk in S.CA
Have NOT found yarn in the Target stores in San Antonio. At least the two closest to me. Maybe we all need to email their corporate office and put the idea in their heads. Sell yarn get more happy customers!
Our local Targets have never carried yarn, that I know of.
We are losing our Zellers in Courtenay to a Target. And Our Walmart yarn Dept is going down hill too. We have two LYS , the yarn is beautiful but don't always need the expensive stuff for some projects. Will have to Go to the stash, but sometimes just walking through the yarn department is relaxing.
Sorry, Target does not currently carry yarn or craft supplies
What I have done is make a list of the types - brand and style - of yarns I like and find where to order them online. IF I find enough of what I want at a store, I'll buy it but most often I end up using the store to decide what I want then ordering it online. This works fine for me in the US. Don't know how it would work out for someone in Canada as some sources may not ship to Canada
I know that I can order through the Michaels stores but it takes much longer than ordering direct on the internet
Nan-ma, I tried the link and just can't get it to work. Could you test it and see if it is just my server. I'm always on the look-out for another good yarn source.
No yarn at Target in Atlanta, not sure our super Walmart has it either, I'm not a fan of Wally World since they started expecting local governments to use condemnation authority to get them property from owners that didn't want to sell.
I usually order about 70% of my yarn on-line, and buy the other in LYS. I've looked at yarn in the local JoAnn's and Michael's, but find that the wool yarns are priced about the same as the all-purpose wool yarn at the LYS and I do like to support the local stores when I can as I appreciate the classes and help they provide.

That is so disappointing. Maybe they might make an exception in Canada. I like to buy the mill end runs from the Bernat factory outlet. I started to going to Zellers because Walmart wasn't carrying that much yarn anymore. Maybe we here in Canada could send emails to Target and let them know we still want yarn.
Island Sue-I have two Target stores near me and neither one sell yarn. They never have carried it. Sorry to have to give you the bad news-however-if you find out some Targets do carry yarn, that's a plus for you. Email or write the Target corp and let them know the former vendor carried yarn and you want Target to continue. Customer contact can make a big impact. Good luck!!!
