I bought a watch back in August or September from the Target across the way from the office here in North Dallas. Well, apparently at 5:23 a.m. today when my daily "if you're not out of bed yet, you should be" alarm goes off, it stopped working. The LED is dead and the hands have quit turning. It's a Casio watch. I like it. And normally, I'm not one for watches; I just use my phone.
So I went back over to the local Target here in North Dallas today and guess what. Well, for one, they don't carry the watch any longer. And two, they're out of the battery and watch band business. I think all it needs is a new battery, but they won't even take off the cover and check.
The girl helping me said that if I find the same watch in another Target, they'll likely just replace it. Isn't that nice? It was a $60 watch and instead of them being helpful enough just to change the flipping battery, they'd rather just give me another $60 watch. Of course, I guess I'd have to take off the watch band I replaced when I bought it to give them back the one that needs a new battery since they won't do that either.
I had a better view of Target until about an hour ago. That's not to say I'll stop shopping there, but honestly, now I need to go to a watch shop in the mall to replace a battery. And I get to pay for it even though I've only had it for three months. Thanks Target. Maybe next time I'll just stick with Wal-Mart.
At this point, I sure as heck won't go back to Target to ever buy a watch again. Future sale: FAIL.
