I have a confession. I’ve been wanting to get this off my mind for quite some time.
Target Gets Me
Every single visit when I exit – I exclaim:
This Is It!
Then a few days later… I’m back crossing all the red lines and shouting:
This is LIT!!!
Target is legendary – which is why they:
Get All of Me Weekly
I’m talking “John Legend – All of Me” level. Yes – it is that serious!
In the parking lot, I have a prep meeting with the kids to let them know the mission:
“Kids, I am JUST getting this Item. That’s It”
We walk in aligned, but in nooo time… ->I start browsing the Bullseye Playground. That is when the kids start putting their foot down:
“Mom, You’re Getting Off The Mission”
I always tell them…I know…I know. Then I silence them by paying them off BAHAHAHAHA – you get a $1 item! you get a $1 item. My own budget friendly Oprah style flex!…Then BAM – I’ve gone from the front of the store to the jewelry section. This is where I get my:
The kind that doesn’t leave a cavity! After the kids sense my enjoyment – their inner radars start blasting & they are back on me. -> Mom – noooooo no more earrings – we have to get that:
Well, Public Service Announcement -> Today I got that One Thing…. and like 15 Other Things! Not my fault I’m committed to:
To make it all the better. On my way to say “Bye” ->Target caught my eye with a delightFULL greeting card display.
The cards made me feel lighter about my anticipated purchases :), life, and encouraged my spirit.
I recorded myself reading them to create visual art without adding the cards to my cart!
The ultimate cherry topper was:
A Checkout That Yielded Not a Single Pout
I was gifted the experience of:
Alejandro, Waukegan Target Cashier
He was incredibly kind and rocking a t-shirt that deserves to flood all the timelines!
I asked if I could take a picture & this is what he did naturally!
My kind of human! Flowin’ and Goofin; around!
My 6 year old picked up a Pikachu stuffed animal while I was shopping – I did not want to purchase the Pikachu today. Alejandro took the Pikachu in a friendly manner and exclaimed “I do Magic!”. Alejandro did a phenomenal magic trick by making Pikachu disappear without breaking my 6 year old’s heart. Then he recommended a brewery that does magic tricks! He quickly pulled out his phone, looked up the brewery, and allowed me to take a photo of his screen.
This is what serving others looks like. I hope to check out Wizard Works Brewing Company in Milwaukee.
On this thankful Thursday (8.11.22) I am thankful for Target:
- Providing affordable products that assist me in leveling up my home & education tools
- Displaying greeting cards that make me pause & give applause
- (BEST FOR LAST) – Employing amazing humans like Alejandro who take the time to connect with those waiting in line – helping customers to know that they will be just fine come rain or shine.
Ya know, I’ve never completed a Target survey, but today is the day I visited informtarget.com. It’s important to commend establishments & humans that serve and love others well. Feedback is a gift & that my friends is a target we cannot miss.
Let the record show that this is why Target hits the Bullseye! Keep that receipt.
Thank You Target,
