Target and The Great Save Event – plus a branding update January 17, 2010

Ahh, remember the good old days when Target sent buyers off to the Paris flea market or the Asian shores to bring us back treasures for our home in January?   Those days are gone in this post recession world; this year we get The Great Save Event!   If it happens to remind you of Costco or Sam’s Club or even Wal-Mart – no problemo!   Shareology dashed in last week to see what all the fuss was about:   

No Membership Fees

Club Packs Club Packs

Signage hanging from the ceiling near checkout reminds shoppers (‘cuse me:   Guests) to check out the back of the store.  And yes, as Shareology left,  headed out the door ahead of her was a woman with a shopping cart loaded with one of the largest packs of toilet tissue Shareology has ever seen.   Does everyone have storage for these club packs?    

Remember that Branding Opportunity or Ugly Concrete Posts? item Shareology wrote a few months back?  It seems for everything there is a season; even branding opportunities, or round red Target balls, have a winter season:   

even Branding Opportunities have a winter season

Life is now good in Minnesota; 30′s seem warm in comparison to the below zero cold of a week ago.  And as Shareology types this, the score is Vikings 34  Dallas 3.   For a snapshot in time, life is good.   

See y’all in N’awlins!
