Target secrets revealed
1. Be considerate of workers
Think about employees who have to clean up after you when you're shopping at a Target store. Things like leaving trash in the cart or leaving perishable food products in the wrong section of the store are complaints that Target workers shared in the above article.
2. Target Starbucks' are managed by Target not Starbucks
This is an interesting fact you might not know. When you see the Starbucks coffee shop inside a Target store, the people managing it are Target workers, not Starbucks workers.
This source says:
Starbucks doesn’t consider Target Starbucks to be Starbucks.
3. Customers can be mistaken for employees and it can happen a lot
The standard Target uniform is a red shirt and khakis. It's not a store-issued uniform so it varies from employee to employee and if a customer has on a similarly styled outfit, they can get mistaken for a Target worker.
Would you be surprised that this happens more than you think?
4. The best deals don't necessarily require you buy in multiples'
You might be used to going to a store and getting a deal like "3 for $5" or something similar where you buy multiple items for a collective discount.
While multiples' deals are advertised, you don't have to buy the minimum required number of items in the deal to get the discount.
For example, a 2 for $6 deal (or $3 each) doesn't mean you have to buy 2 items to get the $6 deal. If you only need one, you can buy one and get it for $3. Fun fact.
5. Undercover Target employees?
This happens to guard against shoplifters, according to this Reddit thread. It makes a lot of sense, if you think about it.
