Target's Great Save Event
Target started their Great Save Event yesterday (Jan. 2nd), which will run through February 5th. This is the second year of the event, in which the Bullseye takes the space where it typically sells seasonal merchandise and instead sets up a "warehouse club-like experience". For the next several weeks, Target's Great Save will feature items like 4-pack boxes of Life Cereal and 30-roll packs of Cottonelle Bath Tissue at member club (like Costco) prices.
As I wrote last year at this time, I was not impressed with the Great Save, and I'm not sure I'll shop it this year, either. We dropped our Costco membership over a year ago because we just don't have the space to store items in mega-bulk sizes. Furthermore, it looks like this event has replaced Target's Global Bazaar, which was something I used to look forward to each year at this time.
