As many of you know, the website was down for many hours, with only periodic openings of being able to get on the site even as of this writing. After not being able to get on the site in the morning, I hopped in my car and made it to Target a few minutes before it opened. Dallas is a shopping town, so I expected throngs of people. Thousands of people arrived even going so far as spending the night at the mall waiting for the opening of Dallas's first H&M a few weeks ago. This baffled me, but Missoni is a one shot deal so I thought it would be even more of a mob scene.
To my surprise, there were only about 35 people waiting at the door. My aunt later relayed that there were 170 people at the Palm Beach Target where all the Palm Beach ladies stormed a Target in a less affluent neighborhood and went wild trading items from cart to cart. However, this crowd while small were focused. They pretty much snatched up all the inventory within 15 minutes. When I went at the end of the day to return a few items so I could look at my receipt without cringing, everything was gone, replaced by the usual Target items, like it was all a figment of my imagination.
My favorite scores: infinity scarf, shaker with martini glasses, and towels.
My misses: the flats. After hitting Home and Clothes the flats were sold out in smaller sizes at 8:07 am.
|I am not keeping all of this! Have to sort through my favorites!|
Anyone else want to share their Missoni for Target experience? I would love to hear about it, this whole phenomenon fascinates me.
