The Target (Sunday November 13, 2016) Ad clearly indicated that there would be Nintendo Classic Systems in their stores (in limited quantities) today. Went to my local Target store in Cuyahoga Falls, OH (at 8:05 a.m.) and was told that they had no Nintendo Classic Systems in the store.

Furthermore, I was told that all systems was sold out on Friday November 11, 2016. I elaborated that the ad is only valid this week and that it starts on November 13, 2016 (today) and that the ad clearly indicated that systems would be available. The store employee and team manager stated that all systems was sold out on Friday and that they would give me a rain check (after asking for one) but floor manager stated "I can give you a rain check BUT I WILL CANNOT HOLD ONE FOR YOU WHEN THEY ARRIVE".

I am deeply disappointed in the store, first for falsely advertising the availability of the system, but also by the treatment of the store manager in not offering a solution to the problem.

Reason of review: False advertising on item stated in regards to availability .

Preferred solution: Permit the raincheck for the item in question (Nintendo Classic System) and hold the item for me when it arrives in store..

As someone who used to work for Target, it's against store policy to hold systems like that. We can hold clothes and specific items for 24-hours only, but no electronics or specific toys or things of that nature.

That is not the fault of the staff, that is store policy in which the staff can get fired for not following. I once put something on hold that wasn't allowed to be put on hold and got in trouble for it.

Why don't you demand a couple hatchimals while you are at it?

You stated in your complaint that the Nintendo's were in limited quantity.

So exactly how does limited quantify = false advertising, especially when you mention that in your complaint?

Where did you come up with this crazy idea?

I think the false advertising is selling the item out two days before they were supposed to.

So exactly what should Target do about this?

No false advertising involved here. The NES was released on Friday(11/11) and promptly sold out.

They then went on sale in the weekly ad that started on the 13th. OP is just QQing that quantities were limited.
