So In Style Dolls Rang up $11.99 at Target!
I went to Target yesterday looking to see if they had the Barbie Basic 3.0 dolls stocked. This Target was in the process of restocking the toy section and had put lots of new fashion doll items on the shelf. I noticed the four So In Style dolls sitting all alone at the end of the aisle. There happened to be a worker there with a price gun on her cart. I had her scan the dolls, expecting to hear $24.39. But she said $11.99. WHAT? I picked up the Marisa doll and had her scan that one, too. $11.99! I was tempted to buy all four, but then remembered the Grace and Marisa doll were the only two on the list. (I have been pretty good at sticking to my list).
So the question is, has Target received enough calls and direct Twitter messages to start changing the price, or is this a fluke? I really don't know the answer to that. I started my Twitter assault just a few days ago. I imagine there were countless other people ticked off enough to call and send messages to Target, as well. My plan is to go back to the other Target that had them marked $24.39 and see if they are still that price. It they are marked $11.99 or something close, I will know that the change is not a fluke. If it is a pending change, it may take the stores that had them for $24.39 a minute to change the price. I have no clue how the whole Target coding system works. It just dawned on me, doesn't the Attorney General in each state handle price gouging issues? I will continue my research to see if the people were again able to affect a change. If the answer is no, I will continue my work to bring attention to the matter. Keep your eyes open in your respective areas. [You see what we were able to temporarily do about those pending bank fees. Power to the people!]
How fitting that Grace is in a pnk and green outfit. This is the reason I bought another Grace doll. Her mom, Camille Langford is a soror in the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority and these are their colors. The Marisa doll will be named Faith, because she looks just like Faith Evans to me. Especially when you look at her on the back of the box.
