When I heard that my dad could get me a ticket for the special preview of the new Target store, I said, "Hook me up!" My dad's construction company built the infrastructure of a new area in town where the Target was built, so we got to go with all the other people who helped build the Target. I knew it was going to be cool, but this was cooler than I thought it would be.
Here's me all excited with our friend Megan, and my step-mom Kim. See that drink in my hand, that yummy lemonade? Ya, they gave that too us, for free!! They also had chocolate fountains, appetizers, candy (!!!), five cakes (shaped like the logo), clowns, and a woman walking around with a Starbucks on her back:
My dad gets a cuppa. Okay but then there is the cool stuff that you just don't think about when a store is opened for the first time. Every product is in stock in every size and color. Everything is in perfect order, and so so clean. I always wondered if they made clothes in extra small, guess what they do! I'm not really an extra small size any more but it is interesting to note. I went down the shoe aisle, they had my size, in every shoe. Plus, since it was an invite thing it was so not crowded, and plus I knew a bunch of the people. I could have gone really crazy, but since we were there to like talk to all the people and stuff we didn't shop too long. I got some interesting stuff. An X-Box 360 for Bj (he is so paying me back, or we're going to sell on eBay, haven't decided), a cool swimsuit cover up, some metallic flip-flops (on sale for 6.50), Target exclusive RED Peeps (ahhh I love Peeps!), and some Lebron James Lighting Lemonade Bubblicious (it was on sale for 44 cents, and just too funny to pass up). The cutest thing though were these little girls who came up to me and were like, "Look, look, we found these blankets, see they are six cents, and we asked a guy, and he said it was right!" They were these little fleece throws, pink with Xs and Os on them. Sure enough they had been mismarked at six cents, but the clerk backed it up. The joy on their faces was too cute.
