Target store maps and doorbusters revealed.

Postby teknoge3k » Tue Nov 18, 2014 5:14 pm

Target has taken a leaf from Walmart's Black Friday book. The Target smartphone app will now feature interactive store maps! The app is available for free in the iOS App Store or in the Google Play Store.

The app allows users to create a shopping list that is tailored to their chosen location. You can then view whether or not an item is in stock, as well as see where it is in the store. After you've downloaded the app, set your store location. Then choose the store from the menu bar on the left and click "View Store Map". It'll show you a complete map of your local Target, down to the individual aisles.

Aside from the sweet shopping lists, you will also be able to locate doorbusters and store layouts come Black Friday! You'll even be able to plan out your store route. You can also open the app between 6PM on Thanksgiving to 8AM on Black Friday for a special easter egg.

Target also updated their website to reveal plans for a Surprise Doorbuster Sale that will run from Thursday November 22nd to Saturday November 24th. There are TVs and a few home theatre items that are included in the sale. One interesting tidbit that caught our eye - most of the items from the sale are not showing on Target's website yet. However, this Westinghouse 40" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV that will be $349.99 during the doorbuster sale is currently on sale for $50 less! The product page is showing the same TV for $299.99. This is probably a price mistake, but it was definitely worth pointing out.

The regular store maps are up. You need to make sure you set your default store.

When you open the app, click the menu in the upper right corner, go to "store finder" and select your store. Then you should have the following screen with the map:

This will be my first year shopping at Target on "Black Friday" and although I'm going to a smaller store and not looking for big ticket items their map looks like a clusterf--k. Who's the genius who decided to put DVDs and games right where lines form for the checkout? I'm hoping since it'll be after 8:00 by the time we get there that the crowds will be low or nonexistent. On the other hand, that may be the time everyone stops at Target after they finish at the neighboring Walmart & Kohls. :roll:

yea you'll be fighting the walmart crowd about then. be prepared to stay in line for about an hour. It's very organized and moves fairly quickly though. And they wind you through the aisles so you can find more stuff to buy as you go along :) haha

In my experience the DVDs have been in the little kids clothing area.

IIRC, it said the map will be available when the sale starts.
