this targat guy was just having a bad day, and he wanted to be a ass to you. to make his ass feel better, next time ask for the boss of this loser. cus thay have to sell you some thing if thay have it. thay can maby loose there job for not being helpful to you. i mean if someone has a fist full of cash, it is there job to take it and give you what you ask for.

That's been a Target policy for awhile. Just varies on the stores enforcing it. 2 of the 5 Target's in my area have the little sign up that employee's can't check/get items from the back room for "collectibles" because they wanna make sure everyone has a chance to get the items, so they will put them out when it's time to restock, which is firt thing in the morning and again in the afternoon.

Screw target. I got the same treatment when I asked for them to bring out the 3 boxes they had in back because the joe pegs were empty. They refused because I asked. The act of asking made me a scalper (I'm a casual collector) and target will not sell to scalpers, this is what I was told. It was the craziest most illogical conversation of my life. Heres the thread:
Target Scalper Policy
What the hell is wrong with target?

i think it suxs but for someone like me i never get a chance to get any cause there is always some that buys the cases so why should i go to that store if only going to see nothing cause some guy came in and smooth talked someone to give him the cases if your going to take a case take one and leave one for people like me im not saying its wrong but leave some for others thats all

i had a friend who got in trouble for pulling stuff from the back room before the product was set on the floor. he was taking a call for those exclusives back in april and when his boss found out he let a collector buy them straight from the back room (as in before they had a place set on the salesfloor), he was less than thrilled. he was threatened with losing his job.
i know it pisses off a lot of people, but frankly i would rather play by the rules than get someone fired for pulling something from the back when their bosses tell them not to. and my friend's store is one of those that also does not cater to collectors....and i believe the story about target getting an email about those exclusives.
just an FYI.
