NEW YORK (AP) Target is a victim of its own success.

Target’s website is very frustrating. I wanted to see if an item was carried in the FM area, so I used their “find a store” button. I put in 58103 zip code and got this message. “We are sorry, there is not a Target store within 100 miles of zip code 58103″ C’mon Target, get your act together!

You realize that means they don’t have it, right? If you select a store BEFORE you start shopping, you won’t get that “error”(at work, we’d call it an ID-10-T error).

Retailers need to get with the program. Allow one day for you to get a ticket for 1, 2 or 3 items in store then have a lotto and let the winners know they can purchase the item. Instead they would rather people be trampled and have their just resold on craigslist by vultures who don’t even frequent their store. I know they think it creates a buzz but what really happens is some short term excitement that will alienate and irritate the long term customer. If they were even smarter they would have only let Target card holders who spent at least say 4-5k over the last year have the option to buy this stuff. That way you reward the people who really keep your business viable. But they are foolish.

I haven’t figured out the great attraction of looking strange with a big designer tag sown on by the Chinese for less. The disruption of the Target site hasn’t affected my life one little bit.

Who is missoni? Oh some “fashion” designer who’s only skill is making a paper bag look worse.

Violated? Seriously? I’ve had some bad shopping experiences, but a rape victim is violated, someone who didn’t get their designer merchandise is not.
