Target To Offer Booze While You Shop, OMG

Nice Move


One of the great mysteries of life is how stores like Walmart, K-mart, and I guess any other mart are literally offensive to us on a deep level, while Target, which is virtually the same thing, is a little slice of heaven on Earth drawing us in, and forcing us to spend hundreds of dollars on meaningless purchases. It doesn’t make a lick of sense. But here we are, sipping our Starbucks green tea lattes, pushing our carts around, and deciding we simply must go home with some poster chalkboard, and a new kite, and every shade of lipstick, and tampons.

Well, now Target is giving us a legitimate reason to fuel our obsession. In a word? Alcohol. One Chicago location, opening in October, has just obtained not one, but two liquor licenses: one for beer and wine, and one for hard liquor. And what’s more, the boozey bottles will not just be available for retail purposes, oh no. Target is going to be offering drinks, in the store, while you shop.


Can you imagine the possibilities? Can you imagine the devastation to your bank statement? And can you imagine all the fun new items you’re going to go home with? This can only mean good things. Fingers crossed this starts rolling out all over.
