A few weeks ago, just before my holiday I headed to Target. If you haven’t heard, they are closing all the Canadian locations within the next few months and prices have been reduced to 40-60% of the original price. I have to say, I am more than disappointed that Target is leaving after two years. It is unfair (ok, maybe that’s a little personal) and it’s just too bad. In my opinion, it was definitely bad planning on the company to expand so quickly with so many stores and so little stock in such a short period of time.
But, what’s done is done and all that is left to do is to hit the sales. So, when I entered the store, I couldn’t believe how stocked the shelves were. I’m not sure where they were hiding all the merchandise, but it definitely wasn’t in any of the stores over the past couple years.
So, I’m sad to report on this day that I didn’t buy much except for some small items from the dollar section. I wish I had bought the acrylic ball lamps like this:
Because when I went back last week, they were gone! Fast forward a couple weeks and the shelves were pretty much empty. In fact, they were selling the shelves! Yes, they were!
Here’s hoping a few of those shirts might just be at my store. I’ll keep you posted.
