Chain stores such as Walmart, Kmart, and Target are very popular for many reasons, from stocking up on trendy kitchen accessories, furniture, curtains, bedding, and appliances, to providing items like baby clothes and sunscreen. Target, in particular, is a discount retail chain store and Fortune 500 company that can be traced back to 1902. Today, it boasts around 2,000 stores throughout the U.S., as well as a bustling e-commerce site that caters for nighttime shoppers looking to buy the same stock on the internet.
There are many things that make Target stand out from the rest. For starters, it offers exclusive and in-demand products at reduced prices, including clothing lines by popular designers like Jason Wu, Isaac Mizrahi, and Zac Posen. The chain store has been linked to exclusive deals with many designers and name brands over the years, most notably partnerships with architect Michael Graves, Liz Lange maternity wear, and Converse athletic wear.
The extensive collection of kitchen supplies and appliances at Target is also very appealing to customers. These include Keurig single coffee machines (with K-Cups), Green Pan, Calphalon, Guy Fieri, KitchenAid, Rachael Ray, Chefmate, Farberware, and T-Fal. The Electronics department is also packed with a wide range of gadgets. Here, you can shop for audio equipment, TVs, tablets, digital cameras, computers, and other gadgets from Apple, Canon, Bose, Samsung, Beats by Dre, and Magnavox.
People also look to Target when they need things such as silverware, queen bedding, Eddie Bauer baby gear, and place settings to create a gift registry for memorable life events such as weddings and baby showers. The store actually helps customers organize gift registries for graduations. It also sells gift cards online, which can be quite good presents.
Target is currently offering REDcard, which works like a credit or debit card. You can apply to gain extra perks and benefits like 5% off on daily purchases, free shipping on Target.com, and an additional 30 days for returns. Target is also known for offering free gift cards to customers purchasing qualifying items like a specified number of diapers, cosmetics, or hair care products. The Target website (Target.com) is always preloaded with various temporary price cuts and free shipping offers.
