Target Complaint - False Advertising
EL CERRITO, CALIFORNIA -- I received a circular in today's Sunday newspaper advertising specials at Target. I went to my local Target to get one of the products, Home scroll jacquard window panels. I arrived before noon on the same day. There were lots of signs advertising the sale, but ONLY ONE package with one curtain. There were three colors advertised in the circular. I asked a manager to check on the availability of the product. They had NONE in the store save that one package. This is a classic case of "bait and switch" in which a customer is lured in to a store for one product only to be told it is not available, and then is directed to buy other, more expensive items. The manager at this store (El Cerrito, California) blamed it on "corporate" and did not even offer a rain check, the usual solution to an availability problem. I WILL NEVER SHOP AT TARGET AGAIN, and I urge others to avoid that store.
