BLOG BYTE – Target Drive-Up Edition
Ahhh…Target. The mAMA’s mecca. The parental paradise. Everything you could possibly need (and lots of stuff you don’t) under one bright, shiny, wide-aisled, and visually-appealing roof. And, some even have Starbucks! Ahhh…Target. (Cue eyelash fluttering). Anytime I get the chance to go and meander in its hallowed aisles, I take it.
But, recently, this mAMA was so bone-tired, weary, and sore – that a necessary Target run (legit necessary…like we-were-out-of-something necessary…LOL!) didn’t hold much appeal. Target wasn’t mad, though, it said,
“Hey girl…just jump on your app and tell me what you need. I got you.”
I did just that, ordered what I needed, and planned to do the pick-up-at-the-service-desk thing (which is pretty cool). The Target app then said,
“Nah, girl…I’ll do you one better…you don’t even have to get out of your car. I know you’re tired and sore. Just stay in your comfy minivan.”
Now, I’ve known other stores have this service and I had never felt the need to take advantage of it. But, this had been a long day of travel and getting baby girl in/out of her car seat multiple times. My shoulders, back, and knees were screaming. My husband was working, so I had to take her out with me – again – and she wasn’t really having it. So, I clicked on the “Drive-Up” pickup option. The rest was Target awesomeness history…
I told my husband about the experience and he said, “oh, so you’ll be doing that again, right?” I said, “nope…anytime I get the chance to go and meander in its hallowed halls, I’ll take it.” But, it’s nice that Target offers to help me when I’m feeling my old, bone-tired, weary, and sore self. Thanks for having me, Target.
