desperate for shopping
You'd never guess our economy sucks if you check out our local Target. Our island's first Target store is holding its grand opening this weekend. Last night, they opened up for the first time, only to those who received special tickets. There was a line to get in the store. Today is what they're calling a soft opening, which means they're getting employees geared up for the big grand opening coming up. I hear they ran out of room in the parking lot and people had to park on the street. According to the paper, the next couple weeks at Target are going to be like Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving as far as shoppers are concerned. Angel #4 wanted me to take her there, but I may be nuts, but I'm not crazy. There's no way I'm going to fight with 3000 other people for the privilege of spending my money - I'll stick to Walmart until the fuss dies down. Once the kids go back to school in a couple weeks, things should settle down some and I'll go check the place out. Until then, no way.
