Hey if anyone's going to be in the toy section, would you mind checking to see what their selection of Journey Girls stuff is like? (It's their house brand that fits American Girl/Maple Lea Girl dolls.) Dd is crazy to outfit her Maple Lea doll. We will be in the US in August and were planning on buying a bunch of stuff at Target then. We don't get a Target in NS until Sept. But it'd be nice to know when we're in the US if we are going to have the opportunity to get stuff when we go back home.

I'm excited just for the different selection. Shopping choices in Canada are very lacking. Do they have Circo brand kids clothes?

Yes a good selection. And I thought the prices were pretty comparable.

Hmm..... over the regular rates that Amex and other cards charge? That's ridiculous. I can understand if they are the same as the other cards but over that is just plain wrong. I might just stick with my Air Miles card then.

They do and the price was so good as well. It was 4.49 or something and I remember I paid 3.99 for each in the US.

I did also notice that they have a ton more Disney merchandise in every department than I have seen before. Funny thing is a few days after they opened we went to Walmart and they had some Disney T's for 5 bucks regular price. I don't think I've seen 5 bucks before unless end of season. This was short sleeved so spring collection. Let the price wars begin

I read this in the fine print when I got my Red Card a few weeks ago. That prompted me to check out our other cards -- it's consistent with them. So if you're shopping at a Target in the U.S. with a Canadian-issued credit card, the fee will be the same. That still leaves a 2.5 per cent discount if you use the Target card at Target (after the foreign exchange fee).

Oh ok I thought PP was saying above the regular charges. 2.5% of Disney GC's are better than nothing at all I guess.

I checked this for you. They had dolls called "Our Generation" and some outfits and accessories. I didn't see any Journey Girls stuff.

Thank you Damo!! And you're right, "Journey Girls" is the Toys R Us line. Duh. I will tell dd we will have some choice once we get home, but it sounds like she'll still want to spend a chunk of her vacation money while we're away.

I visited the East York Target for the first time today. I was halfway home before I realized that it didn't have a produce section or bakery or prepared food section. Do the other Targets have these?

We have gotten a few outfits at our new Target for the DD's American Girls. The our generation standard outfits were $12.99 and the fancier outfits (with a hat for instance) were $16.99 . Really cute! DH just shook his head....

I was in the Burlington store yesterday and they have a small bakery and prepared food section. No produce that I recall. It is a much smaller grocery area than Walmart.
