and Target gave them a another one. I saw it on Fox, but can't find the link. Two gals bought huge toy cars for their kids X-mas presents, No-Go..............they called Budget and rented an SUV to get the over sized toys home.

I guess "It was on sale............" is where the thought process stated and stopped. Gotta get them Black Friday deals while you can, I reckon.

    We have no plans to fight crowds today, may go to a store or maybe not...........Mrs Chief is an Amazon pro shopper and naturally we have Prime for free (after paying a yearly fee) shipping on most everything.

    Black Friday, for me, consists of waiting for the brown truck.

    We just buy online and pick up in the store on Friday afternoon (sometimes Saturday) after the crowds and sales are done......

    I have to sneak over to the post office to ship that sistrum that sold - that's the ONLY reason I'm venturing out of the house today. Otherwise, I wouldn't set foot out the door until Sunday when I'm planning a range trip.

    We went pheasant hunting for black friday...no bargains (or birds in bags), but beats the heck out of shopping.

    :agree: Also do the online shopping, have it sent to the nearest store, and go pick it up when it arrives. But I do that the whole year, so..................nothing new. Why do women (and a lot of men) lose what little mind they have when it concerns Christmas shopping? It's like most of them are on a bad drug trip.

    Target gave them another one because it keeps customers happy and its a local news story which is good PR for them.

    True enough, and Target will likely turn around and charge their supplier for a TV broken 'in shipping', or just write it down as 'shrinkage' and pass the cost on to you and me as just part of doing business. There's no reason not to go for good PR, especially when somebody else has to pay for it.

    You know who won't pay for it? The folks who actually broke the TV trying to improperly load it into a vehicle.
