The BIG big news here all this last week (hey, we're a small town!!) has been this:
ETA: I edited the photograph, because I wan't fond of it and another poster inspired me......thanks!!
Target's incursion into Canada has been big news for several months now, but 13 of the new-to-Canada stores opened in this area in the last week. So far, just a "soft opening", ie no Grand Openings yet, but the stores doors are open and people are checking it out. So, of course, I had to do the same!
I was disappointed to find no Cherry Coke, and no Ro-tel...both of these are unavailable in Canada and I had high hopes.*sigh* No such luck. But I am keeping faith, as the stores are clearly not fully stocked yet; in fact, there are lots and lots of empty shelves at the moment.
I DID find my favourite underwear!...and, the prettiest ever set of plastic tableware for the deck, which I reluctantly left there as a) I don't need it b) I can't really afford it and c) I DO want to take that drive south in May.
Like all stores, there are great prices on some things ($7.99 for my fave shampoo, for which I usually pay $9.99!) and awful prices on others ($9.29 for the 1 kilo peanut butter...are you kidding me??), so you really have to be aware of your pricing.
But I think it will be a hit! I'll be back, and will probably check out the (much larger) store in Newmarket soon....
For now, why don't y'all check out the much-more-interesting curves of the other participants in this week's challenge HERE
