082108target.jpgThe tanking economy may be dragging retail businesses to a watery grave, but Target isn't going down without a fight. Though it is tough going; net earnings were down 7.6 percent in the quarter ending August 2nd. That's why the company is coming up with innovative new marketing strategies, like capitalizing on a previously unexploited synergy with September 11th patriotism! After all, the retailer's red and white logo is just one color away from Old Glory. So this year 9/11 won't just be a day to honor our fallen heroes, but also a day to check out Target's awesome new Go International private label collection at four pop-up stores around Manhattan. They're even calling them Bullseye Bodegas, though we'll probably never know the real truth behind the sales that day. [Jossip]
