9. Under-one-Roof Convenience
Unless you’re looking for something so obscure like glow in the dark posters of Barry Manilow, Target’s got just about everything you need under one roof.

Of course the selections vary by location, but basically you’ve got everything from skirts to Skittles here. Whether your style’s more conservative or colorful, quirky or classic, we’re sure you’ll find what you set out for (and then some).

Whenever we walk in, we half expect to see random strangers high-fiving while R.E.M’s “Shiny Happy People (holding hands)” serves as the musical backdrop to our wonderful shopping experience.

Can you blame us?

Let’s see: all five senses are immensely satisfied:

First, there’s that very subtle, pleasant smell of popcorn that immediately greets us, yet never seems to follow us throughout the store (whew)! Within minutes, we’re off whiffing all kinds of rosemary mint conditioners and mandarin olive oil shampoos. As we’re deep-breathing, we’re catching glimpses of beautiful colors and patterns. We run our fingertips across soft jammies and rope-textured ottomans. We hear . . . pretty much nothing. (See # 11. It’s a good thing). And when we leave, we’re always fully satisfied yet still left hungering for more of that Target goodness.

11. Peace & Quiet
The other day, I heard an intercom announcement: team members should now gather for the Friday morning “huddle.” (“Huddle.” Don’t ya just love it!? Even their meetings sound fun).

That’s when it dawned on me. This may have been the first time I’ve heard a page like this—or of any kind—at Target. Typically, employees have walkie-talkies to communicate (because really, do we need to know about that “bird mishap” by the front door)?

Ahhh, so refreshing in a world often filled with ear-splitting, intercom run-ons: “housewaresinaislefive*click*”

Thank you Target, for respecting the inner ear.


So, let’s see. Great styles, plenty of room (and room for fun), terrific prices and affordable quality. Yup, we definitely love Target.

For more than one reason.
