Yea similar experience at my local Target along with the others. Went in and heard over the walky talkie of an employee, "Sold out, won't be getting any more in."
That's really not what a customer wants to hear. Perhaps maybe you might "try" to see if it's possible. The employees also seemed unconcerned about the problem. Almost to the point of annoyed with customers for a corporate problem.
Perhaps limit the amount of products some of the employees can buy. I would've preferred to at least have tried one soda. Also lost out on potential sales as I came in for a night-guard and some vitamins but decided against it due to my disappointment.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Monetary Loss: $5.
Preferred solution: Deliver product or service ordered.
