We shop Target in Minnesota and in Arizona in the winter. They have a big problem in Arizona with out of stocks. You can almost plan on it. In retail out of stocks are lost sales.

IMO retailers are always disappointed no matter how much business they do.

You could even see it on Black Friday. People were there buying, but instead of a cart full, they had only a few items while waiting in the checkout line.

Target was trying to build up "excitment" for sales at their stores? Well, anyone could have seen that any step toward very expensive items would not have worked. Target is seen as a place to get handy things here and there. Not a place to find expensive presents! And VP Target People get paid big bucks for decisions like these? Target is seen as a step up from WallMart and that is where it will stay for a long time. It is very hard to change people's expectations in retail stores. Try another tack.
