What I am trying to say is that the Targets out here are nowhere remotely close to the Targets I knew and loved back in Minneapolis. My Twin City readers will know what I'm talking about. A bad Target experience might happen occasionally, and then usually only around the holiday season. Perhaps it's our proximity to the headquarters of the corporation, or perhaps it's just our good spirited, midwestern nature, but shopping at a Target is never a hard thing to do. Carts are available (usually) and people have a general idea of how to deal with aisle traffic. The layouts, for the most part, make some geographical sense so finding things are not that hard. This is what makes Target so much better than Walmart (or at least one way).
But from my experience out here, Targets are no more than Walmarts with red paint and more narrow aisles. And oh god the kids and the families and the general lack of courtesy when it comes to navagating carts around. Ugh!
In short - if I don't find another, better Target, I may have to start shopping at Walmart because while it's probably the same, the prices might be a little bit better. And hey - who needs a soul anyways?
