Target claims it just made 1,000s of items cheaper

Target – which is basically just Walmart with red signs and a Starbucks at this point,  announced Friday that it is lowering prices on thousands of things. This is probably because Amazon bought Whole Foods and lowered the prices on things there, which made Walmart lower some prices too. So now, everyone is getting into the act – which is cool, since you would probably prefer to spend less since this summer’s electric bills have left you without a ton of cash in the ol’ bank account.

Here’s what a higher up fella at Target had to say about what’s going on:

“We want our guests to feel a sense of satisfaction every time they shop at Target,” says Mark Tritton, Target executive vice president and chief merchandising officer in a blog post. “Part of that is removing the guesswork to ensure they feel confident they’re getting a great, low price every day. We’ve spent months looking at our entire assortment, with a focus on offering the right price every day and simplifying our marketing to make great, low prices easy to spot, all while maintaining sales we know are meaningful to guests. And guests are taking note, appreciating much easier, more clear—and more consistent savings—at Target.”

Sure.  Ok.  Whatever.  Just so long as I save some money, sure.

If you notice anything cheaper at the store on shopping online, let us know in the comments.
