I love Target. I buy a lot of stuff from there. However, I am not happy with them right now.
Target debuted their Missoni line this Tuesday. It sold out immediately in stores and online. People waited in line when the stores opened, scores of people checked Target.com throughout the early morning to try to access the items, but I did not. When I checked the webiste that afternoon, all I saw was “out of stock.” I knew the line would be popular, it was very anticipated. However, I’m saddened that everything is gone, no longer available and the sale was seemingly managed poorly. There are many blog posts out there about people’s experiences and upset, this is a good example, but I’m not going to tell you how Target looked like the milk aisle after the Snowbird Report. Instead, I’m going to show the items that were not.
Here are the items I very much wanted but never found.
I did get the blue skirt. I was looking at the left overs (a few pairs of socks and two ties) at the store in Brentwood and a woman was trying on a sweater. It was an extra large and she had to be a small. She looked at me and said, “This is too big, yes?” I agreed and she asked if I wanted it. I said no but thanked her for offering it. Then, she said “Do you want a skirt?” My eyes must have bugged out when I said, “Yes!” because she said, “Follow me. I found one hidden in the work out clothes.” She led me straight to it. I almost hugged her.
Unfortunately, there are lots of pieces on eBay. I refuse to pay for them there. Did you get anything? If you find any of these pieces in a large or extra large, I’ll pay you back.
