There were rumors that Target wanted HBC, and the Globe and Mail actually reported that it was coming "this week". It never did happen. Roots is still Canadian, and the Forzani empire (Sportchek, Sport Mart, Atmosphere, Coast Mountain Sports, Sports Experts, etc.). So is Chapters, though I guess the number of chains is dwindling. But is it worth it to buy something just because it's a Canadian company? I mean, most of the goods sold aren't made in Canada, should that matter as well? Also, an American company, or a Swedish company employs Canadians, thereby pumping money back in. With globalization, does it really matter all that much?
