Exclusive event features bulk bargains and designer brands This January, Target unveils The Great Save, a nationwide event featuring incredible prices on a variety of products, bulk-packaged items and designer brands in a warehouse-club-like setting without membership fees or ID cards. Target is hosting the exclusive event at all of its 1,740 stores January 3 through February 21, 2010. “The Great Save is a way for Target to offer our guests exceptional deals on everyday essentials—just in time for their post-holiday stock-up—and a treasure-hunt experience with a variety of exciting designer brands,” said Kathee Tesija, executive vice president of merchandising, Target. “This event is a fresh, innovative approach to meeting our guests’ evolving needs and providing them with the opportunity to save even more at Target.” For seven weeks, Target is offering a unique twist on its “Expect More. Pay Less.” brand promise. Guests will find a value-driven club experience—with a variety of affordable products and bulk-packaged items ranging from paper towels and granola bars to T-shirts and bath towels—and exciting designer brands not typically carried by the retailer. The designer brands include apparel and home décor and are available while supplies last at approximately 1,000 of Target’s 1,740 stores. To provide guests with added convenience, Target is showcasing all products offered through The Great Save in one central location of the store. The limited-time Target event will entice shoppers with fun, compelling in-store signing and the retailer’s signature superior guest service. It offers hundreds of national and owned brand products at incredible prices—such as a 35-pack of Market Pantry water for $3.59, which represents a savings of approximately 40 percent—and other household staples including food, health and beauty products, as well as home goods, apparel and electronics. Products offered through The Great Save are limited in quantity and may vary by store location. Some products also are available at Target.com.
