semi-fake crisis at target

You can’t trust very much. Sometimes things are, sometimes they ain’t.

A friend posted a pic of a huge empty area in Target claiming it evidence of crisis. It was the day after back-to-school and Target was switching it out to Halloween. I went by later and took pics of the rest of the store bursting with merchandise. gyaahd.

Friend claimed that shelves were barren store-wide. I pointed out that in the distance in their very own photos that the store looked heavily laden. Friend then claimed that store was nearly out of Keurigs. lol

I wanted to say, “what is up with you?” but decided it was better to let it go and just mock in secret on social media.

I had seldom seen a more beautifully stocked store.

Brian and I have made a game to see how long these expired yogurts will stay in the cooler at Target. 🎯

How to shop at Lawndale Target then Harris Teeter and only park once on the nice side.

I like parking near Target because it’s less entrapping than the Teeter side plus returning to Lawndale offers a nice curved ramp.

Shop Target then run things back to the car. Don’t get freezer items.

Take Target cart over to the Teeter and kinda hide it behind a column. You can’t take the Teeter cart over to the Target side without the wheels locking. Target carts will go anywhere. That’s why you see them pushed down embankments on Battleground even.

Have your fun at HT, then come out and offload into the Target cart and you’re free. I’ve never once found my red cart gone.

hostile architecture and design

I think this has plausible deniability as a social-distance separator, but I suspect it might be hostile design aimed at homeless. Usually hostile-design benches have higher hoops, so I don’t know. It drew my eye as a bit odd. Maybe it’s dual-purpose.

Me. 👍 🎯

I had the best luck at Target today. 🎯 I should go buy a lottery ticket.

I saw some socks and boxer briefs that I liked marked down twice on clearance. Nice brands and classy lookin’. The lowest clearance price was more than adequate, but I went to the scanner just to check. The scanned price was half of the lowest clearance price! I pulled my cart up and emptied the shelf. 😃

middle-of-the-night shopping run

I went by Target at 1 AM Friday morning just for the experience of being in a store at such an hour and to see what kind of people were out shopping at 1 AM.  I was just there to observe, so that made it OK, though I did buy two items.  lol.  The other shoppers looked fine, though some were drunk and loud.

Some of the prices were very good.  I looked at televisions and the Nooks.  Some were tempting, especially a Hello Kitty flatscreen TV, but I didn’t really need either in spite of trying hard to rationalize a purchase.  I had to fall back on an old shopping mantra:  sometimes the best way to save money is not to buy.  I ended up walking out with just a carton of orange juice and a pair of sweatpants.  The total was about $10.

Here is how the store looked after midnight.  I like how the parking lot light affected the camera.
