I donít mind that they remodeled my Target store. In fact, Iím really glad theyíre finally finished with it, and the parking lot isnít choked with material and equipment every time I go there. Not that I go there very often. In fact, I didnít even know that they were finished with the remodel when I showed up on my errand run this morning.
As soon as I walked in the front door, I noticed something vaguely wrong. Everything was on the opposite side of the store from where it was supposed to be. But the greeting cards and wrapping paper were right in front of me, so I didnít panic. Those items were part of the reason I was there, and although the selection was pretty weak, I found what I needed.
Thatís more than I can say for the menswear department. What a mess that was. They donít have the socks I used to buy, so I had to settle. They donít have the T-shirts I used to get there, so I had to compromise. The selection looks to be about half as large as it was before, and way more upscale than Iíd expect to find there. We donít need another high end department store, especially if itís going to replace my Target.
Maybe I was already grumpy when I walked in, what with driving through traffic just to get there. But I was grumpier after Iíd been wandering around the store for half an hour (on company time). I guess Iíll get used to the changes. Either that, or Iíll find another store. Itís just that this one is so convenient. Or anyway, it used to be.
