These people, who the mob of angry shoppers dubbed "The Vultures Who Ruined Jason Wu for Target," came in and took everything. And by everything, I mean everything except what the few of us were able to grab before he did. It all happened so quickly, none of us knew where everything went. We just saw a wannabe mastermind duo with two carts and everything from the collection in it. And that's when things got ugly.
A woman, who had been waiting in line as long as the rest of us, said she wasn't going to tolerate that and took something out of the vultures' carts. The male vulture showed her. Her husband threatened him. The police got involved. And then the insults started to fly. The rest of us who were shopping for ourselves with no plans to resell got mad. How was it fair that this guy was taking everything and then telling people around him they could "buy it off him outside?"
The angry mob called over the management and asked them to intervene. And they did. They took him aside and told him it wasn't allowed. But a call to corporate Target told them they were not allowed to enforce such a limit on items. And then we were back to square one.
Did they not learn anything from the Missoni for Target fiasco!?
Target had to have known they were buying it just to turn around and resell it. But, at the end of the day Target probably doesn't care because they got their money.
What do U think???
Should Target put a limit on how many items you can buy from a collection?
- No! It's first come, first serve. (19%)
- I'm not sure (9%)
- Yes! That way it's fair for everyone. (72%)
