Ive never had a issue with any of the targets here in jacksonville,FL. Now these stores never stock anything according to the street/set dates but all the items due eventually make it out on the shelves.. Right now I have 2 Conquest, 4 Rattlers and 2 complete red hulk ML sets .. Nothing but love for target.

As far as Target goes, they just seemed to be getting a bad rap, but if it were not for Target taking a chance on the first wave of vehicle exclusives and now the planes, who knows if we would have ever gotten vehicles.

i thought this was gonna be a real sarcastic thread. lol
it's not Target's employees i have a problem with, they're normally pretty friendly for the most part (minus older employees typically).
what i have a problem with is that they won't set back any merchandise. they told me themselves, "just call and we'll look for it to see if it's here for ya". then, i'm like, "can you hold it for me till i can drive out here?, cause i live about 30mins away."
the response is always, "no, we're not allowed to hold merchandise for any reason".
i've never asked, but i've wondered if they'd allow me to pay for the items with my credit card over the phone, so then they'd know i'm seriously on my way to pick whatever it is i'm interested in.

I don't have customer service complaints with Target. The issues with them for me is:
a. $7.99 for a single fig!
b. They never have any new single figs ever...except Cobra Commander and Scarlett
c. See b again
d. I suspect the employees are snatching the Joes before they leave the loading dock so they never hit the shelf. (Can I blame them? Not really. Would I also snatch Joes and get my employee discount if I had to work at Target? Of course I would. I still wouldn't horde all of them and scalp them online. I just want a single figure of each at the most. I like the simple things.)
By the way, I'm not implying that Target employees alone are doing this, I would guess it goes on at WM and TRU as well. That's why it's so damn hard to find these guys.

I've never had an issue with Target as well, other than their stocking quantities;)
I think it goes back to how you approach and handle adversity. You can usually turn a bad experience into a good experience with most corporate chain stores, IMHO. There will always be someone wanting the sale to make ammends to you if you've truly been wronged.
