Oh good god, can you even imagine? It’s not like anyone with half a head can walk into and then out of Target sober without spending far more than the initial intention, but to add in a few glasses of de-common sense? It’s possibly the worst … and best … idea we’ve ever heard …
In an application dated Aug 24 for what Chicago calls a “Consumption on Premises — Incidental Activity License,” it’s reported that a new Target store in the city’s Streeterville neighborhood is looking to sell alcohol to customers. That is, open containers, to freely drink, whilst shopping for home décor and other sundries. A bar inside of Target, that’s where this is all going.
An obvious move to get customers to stay longer, thus spending more — a la Las Vegas — the chain had little to say about its application for the as-of-yet approved license, offering no further comment when asked by other reporters. Squares.
We pity the employees having to work the customer service lines — buyer’s remorse returns are going to be through the roof.
