With its low prices and huge selection, this is truly a one-stop-shopping mecca. – In Short
Red-shirted salespeople guide shoppers through the bright, well organized stores. From housewares to lawn care, Target stores are always clean and welcoming. And with clothing lines by Mossimo and Isaac Mizrahi and housewares designed by noted architect Michael Graves, it satisfies budget-conscious college students and as well as young families.
Check the boxes before you leave! – I bought a TV that weighed a tonne only to find once I had taken it out of the box at home it was damaged and had to go back. Really annoying especially as they did not have the exact TV to replace it although the staff were pretty helpful and apologectic.
Where's the stuff? – I usually avoid coming to this location because many of the shelves are empty--especially in the housewares department. The parking lot gets crowded and Elston can be a traffic nightmare around there. It's a bit of a drive, but if I've got the time, I prefer to go to the Target on Howard. It's got a big, fancy Jewel right next door, which makes it very convenient.
cheap chic – great place for house supplies, toiletries, patio furniture, stereo equipment, socks, underwear, all that stuff. actually quite stylish. i buy all my workout clothes there. there's not much you can't find here.
Love/Hate shopping – It's a great one-stop store for various household items, but this store is ALWAYS packed. It's insane. It's to the point that I have figured out a secret parking space that's usually always open. The parking lot is mayhem, but at least there's also the garage in the back (hint). The staff is usually helpful, once you grab their attention. The store inventory is good, but sometimes pretty bare from so many customers.
