Target Continues to Amaze

I don’t know how I missed this the first time. I had to pick up some notebooks at Target today and they have an insane contraption to bring shopping carts up and down the escalator. This might be old technology but I’ve never seen this before. I guess I don’t go to malls that often but this is sweet.

I also went across the way and got a new camera at Best Buy. I’m pretty happy with the camera (this is a cellphone shot the new shots will be revealed next week) but Best Buy has an insane return policy. At least for cameras they do. I asked what the return policy was and they said 14 days but there will be a 15% restocking fee. So I said, then you don’t really have a return policy. And then the saleswoman and I stared at each other for 10 very, very awkward seconds. And I still ended up buying it. But is that normal – a 15% restocking fee? Sounds ridiculous to me. Maybe they could charge one after 14 days but from the start is kind of bullshit. Fortunately I was still riding high from discovering the shopping cart contraption that I still departed the complex happy.
