The old Target building at Polo Park is getting a new tenant.

On Thursday 24-7 Intouch announced it will expand into the building on St. James Street, previously occupied by Target.

24-7 Intouch is a global contact center and technology group.

The Winnipeg office already operates out of three locations on Taylor Avenue, Waverley Street and downtown on Kennedy Street at Graham Avenue.

Construction has already begun on the 55,000 square facility which is expected to be completed by mid 2018.
