When moms complain, Target listens.
For so many of us moms, shopping at Target is more than just another quick run to pick up a few household items on a Thursday afternoon.
It’s an experience. It’s a process. It’s a moment.
You go to Starbucks and pick up your Caramal Macchiato (skinny, with ice) before checking out the dollar spot. You then pick up a few groceries, some items for your hidden stash of snacks (what?), check out all the cute tees you like to wear around the house and buy shampoo, school supplies, kids’ socks and new shower mats before making your way back to the cash register to check out.
And before you know it, you’ve spent well over $200 when all you wanted was bananas and sandwich bread. But you know what? It’s ok. Because you’re at Target. Without the kids. Ok?
And because so many people love the experience that is shopping at Target, many people were completely outraged when the company decided to test out kids’ shopping carts at a dozen of their stores. What they didn’t realize though was the test would not only ruin the harmony of the store, but cause complete havoc for some shoppers, too.
There’s a new report that Target has removed kids’ shopping carts after kids went wild with them.
