    Looks like there's an official price match policy!


    • Price matching for any local competitor's flyer or weekly ad (print or online), and price matching for select online retailers, including Amazon.ca, Walmart.ca, Bestbuy.ca, Toysrus.ca, Babiesrus.ca, CanadianTire.ca, Futureshop.ca and Sears.ca.
    • Guests can now use popular apps, such as reebee and to price match, instead of bringing a printed flyer.
    • Price match can now be completed at the register instead of guest service.

    I think if you don't want to like Target then you're not going to like it lol. Tripling the space for NYX cosmetics for me personally is HUGE. And I just took a look at the new Altuzarra line coming in september and I want it ALL lol. I personally love target. I love their baby clothes too. It can only get better for me

    Target lags far behind other retailers. Target doesn't even offer online shopping! Seriously, is this 1998?

    Yes.
    Online shopping has to come from them.
    So they can compete with Walmart, Canadian Tire, Lowes, Home Depot, Sears.
    Even Home Hardware lets you buy online and ship to the store.

    C'mon Target!!

    Actually, I think the changes they are planning to make are very positive and will make a difference. I enjoy shopping at Target and try to avoid stores like Walmart and Canadian Tire -- their complete lack of customer service doesn't cut it with me. I find the Target stores in my area have friendly, helpful staff; they are clean and well-organized. I am glad to hear Target is tackling their inventory issues. Walmart and Canadian Tire should do the same as they always seem to be out of stock on a large variety items.

    I am not a big Beaver Canoe fan but I think Sarah Richardson will be a much bigger hit than Nate Berkus!

    I was glad to see the Altazurra capsule clothing collection mentioned in Sept. issue of Elle. Something to look forward to for fall.
    Also, like the Plus sizing news-wish it was coming by Nov 2014 rather than 2015.

    I was looking at the store's Twitter site and the chain has been at various stores comping customers' purchases ("This one's on us" photos). How do we find out which stores are in line for such treatment?
    The Twitter addy also mentioned that the new CEO's son encouraged him to apply for the job and his daughter is a Target fan. Maybe they'll relay some "bring the US stores to Canada" chatter to his ears.

    I'm not a fan of the Target store myself. The one in London is always half EMPTY (yup. feeling pessimistic today!) and any time I've gone in there for something, it's been out of stock...and I don't shop for highly unusual things either.

    I went looking for yoga-style pants for my daughter. Nope.

    I went looking for a new swim suit in the spring for my daughter. Nope. Nothing at all in the 7-16 size but oodles in the 2-6X sizes.

    I went looking for a new dish drain board. Nope. Not a one. It wasn't like they had 13 kinds of them but were out of the particular one I wanted. No. They literally did not have a single dish drain board in the entire store??? Not a one!

    lol. I even went to the Starbucks and asked for a tall dark roast coffee. Nope. Sorry. Don't have that either.

    Target kinda reminds me of Zellers for some reason...I think because they carry similar names (Cherokee, Mossimo etc) . Except they seem like an over-priced Zellers. I was never a fan of Zellers either so I suppose it goes to reason I wouldn't like Target.

    But it certainly doesn't help that the first 3 or 4 times I went looking for something they didn't carry it. Now I don't even consider going there at all because I've already decided it would be a wasted trip.

    On one person's blog post, she mentioned that Sears Canada is also comping shoppers' back to school purchases this month. Would like to know when that offer is coming to Hamilton!

    When Target first opened near me, I visited their store once a week for 4 months straight (I had a weekly appt at an office in same mall). Sometimes I was looking for items from the flyer, and sometimes it was just regular items that I needed so wanted to check their prices. And they NEVER NEVER NEVER had any stock on the shelves! At first I thought "good for them! They're selling everything!" but then I realized they just never got any stock in, so I gave up going there.

    Then a couple of months ago I heard about their new approach, how they realized they had screwed up and were going to do things better. So I decided to start reviewing their flyers again and making weekly visits again, because I still go to that mall once a week. Did it for 7 weeks and gave up - they still NEVER NEVER NEVER had any stock on the shelves.

    I don't know what they are thinking - how can you run a business when you have nothing to sell to people? And I'm disgusted that I wasted so much of my time with them. They'll have to do a lot to get me back into the store.

    I like Target's baby shopping section, the prices are very reasonable even without coupons. It all depends on what you are looking for.

    YESSSSS! sorry that got me excited because one of the makeup brand I was excited to finally see sold instore was NYX and I was so disapointed when I saw the selection they had. Basically all the products I wanted to buy weren't sold there! so crossing my fingers now

    *also I hope they extend the elf products they carry too eventually*
