I have always shopped at Target as opposed to any other competitor (and trust me, I am no young un), that came to a screeching halt yesterday.
I presented my check in the amount of $300+, much to my embarrassment, my check was declined.
I had two carts full of items, as we recently purchased a lake home and am in the middle of redecorating. When I called the 800 number I was told I had sufficient funds in our account (really) and the reason the were unable to approve the check is because I did not have a long enough history from the account (granted we did open a new account when financing for the property).
When I told the gentleman on the phone they have lost a customer for life, I received "Ok" then click. I couldn't believe this.
I absolutely refuse to walk into a Target again. I like their stores, they are clean and the layout is incredibly easy.
