An eerily empty Target store

Empty shelves everywhere. No employees in the aisles. One cashier on duty on a payday Friday.

I can't help but wonder if Target is in financial trouble.

A Halloween decoration at Target
  • Square, black keys?
  • CLR/HOME key?
  • INST/DEL key?
  • RESTORE key?
  • RUN STOP key?
  • and cursor keys?
  • Dedicated currency key?

Yep, the Commodore PET has been immortalized as a Halloween trinket at Target.

In keeping with the Halloween theme, the HELLO, HELP, and Escape keys have been highlighted.

Off Target

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 Alive 17,448 days

I mostly stopped shopping at Target a while ago because it hardly ever has anything in stock.

I tried again today. No change.

It canʼt even stock the most basic of basics: eggs, sugar, flour, and cooking oil.

Wait till they get to Kohlʼs

I think I’ve figured out why three-year-olds in Target shriek like it’s the worst thing thatʼs ever happen to them.

It’s because they’re three years old, and going to Target probably is the worst thing that’s ever happened to them so far.

Iʼve noticed an increase in empty shelves and lack of product choices at Target, Safeway, and Kroger stores over the last six months.

Itʼs starting to look a little Soviet out there.

Data doesnʼt lie

Today I learned that Target doesnʼt carry silver polish.

I guess Target thinks itʼs unlikely its shoppers would own silver.

Proof that there are stupid questions

Target wants to know how Iʼm enjoying the gift I bought. The gift I bought for someone else. That I had shipped directly to someone else.

So, I guess the correct answer is “Iʼm not enjoying it at all.”
