    never made it to a target's store here, ooopppssss
    did like the one i was in in the states
    am very sorry to see anyone losing their job
    but think we are bugged as shoppers,

    sorry this link is ridiculous - unless you get to huge look, ie 170 - 200
    then one sees how target just came up here to rob us and them,
    and of course the people working for them - ass holes

    i do wonder why they even set up here, seems very odd if they couldn't be bothered to stock
    and yet had the same terrific staff to help --- kind of creepy

    They will be getting a nice big tax write off in the states I assume.

    We all know they were half arsing it, but to be so callous about their actions, or lack of, doesnt make me so enthusiastic about running to the states specifically for target. We still have ikea for home items and i looove ikea for my mid mod fix.

    Anyone remember mr. Fischer from target saying early on that if Canadians didnt like what target was offering then we should simply shop at the US stores. I have a feeling that attitude was something they just could not move past.

    Lucky. I had to go to the bank which is in the same plaza as Target and the parking lot was full and people were circling trying to find a spot at 9 am. Maybe next week I'll get to go to Target in peace.

    We will be accepting returns on any purchases before Liquidation started (Feb 5) WITH RECIEPT or if your receipt comes up with a card lookup (i wouldn't count on it though, those are really hit & miss.)
    Anything purchased Feb 5th and onward will be final sale no matter what.

    And i picked up one single nyx shadow this morning, that is it. But it is a pretty color, im happy!
    All cosmetics had been opened, so nasty. Dirty ppl just open up a product and start swiping it on themselves. Ugh.

It is crazy they did that and shows you how out of touch there marketing in Canada was. They could have put it at 40% off and it still would gone instantly.

    Before Christmas I was looking for a set and Lego Star Wars rarely went on sale. Either here or in the US. Maybe the odd set was 10% off but it was rare.
    You are right. The marketing was always weird. Last year I couldn't believe the amount of toy clearance in January, Central City had 4 aisles worth, downstairs from the toy section where the seasonal usually goes. No real signage saying "huge toy clearance". No advertising. This year same thing (though it stayed in the toy section) but this time it included Lego and Barbie. If they had put out one ad that said "Up to 70% off Lego and Barbie", the masses would have come and maybe they would have seen the great home decor and clothing at the same time.

    And why would you ever put Lego on that deep clearance? No one does that.

    But I thank them for it.

    Target clearance was weird. When the portable heaters appeared in store for the season, they immediately had a $229 Honeywell infrared heater on clearance at 70% off - great deal, buy why? I picked one up.. the all disappeared from the stores. Then several weeks later they were back on the shelf, in the flyer on sale at $199. They continue to have them on the shelf in the store.. even now.

    Would you do price adjustments? Thanks for all the information
    Thinking of opening an ING account use this number 35728975S1 and both of us get a $50!! dollar bonus.

    All the items I bought yesterday were red sticker deals. I stalked them out before the sale started.

    1 item still had the sticker the others did not.
