I went to Target on Seigen Lane in Baton Rouge early last night. I went for what I expected to be a safe and pleasurable experience. It used to be that way.
OMG I should have known when I drove up that something was different. Baskets in the parking lot everywhere. And, the store was filthy. First thing I saw walking in, flowers that should have been in the garden mortuary last Monday.
Merchandise in complete disarray. On the floor, tags ripped off, clothes everywhere. It looked like a Hurricane had gone thru the store. It was so depressing after the way a remembered this store.
I was not buying any food. I knew that. My family owns a wholesale grocery distribution business in Baton Rouge and this was horrific to see.
I would expect from this visit that Target is in serious trouble financially. I will go back to Walmart next time. It may not be as safe, but their store is a delight compared to this fiasco.
