        Didn't they only recently renovate the Melb CBD store??

          It was definitely one of the nicest Target stores.

          Yeah, before Covid

    •  

      Yeah, in some NSW towns they're closing down Target stores and making em Kmarts. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong

      •  

        That is correct. Our local, Katoomba became a mini kmart - "K-hub". I think you can still click and collect target orders there.

  •  

    Surely this can’t be true?

    •  

      On the Target website it says the Melbourne CBD store will be converted into a Kmart

        Thank you. Some great deals to be had here!

    Feel free to post reciepts! Hoping I can price match elsewhere to save a trip into the city.

    •  

      Doubtful since it's a clearance sale.

    If anyone gets an Xbox controller can you post the receipt so I can try and price match at my local retailers?

    •  

      Would love one too please

    •  

      I'd also like one too as well please.

    •  

      Will do.

    •  

      Would also like one.

    •  

      If I could get one too that'd be awesome!

      Don’t think closing down sales will be matched anywhere.

    Is the switch lite worth it? Only ever played pc and some vr with a bit of wii and xbox but liked pc better

    • +4 votes

      For $164 definitely, although you can't play on the TV.

    •  

      that's a stellar price, but you have to really be into switch games to justify it. i was (and am) a pc gamer who was interested in a switch and was fortunate enough to receive the lite as a gift, but i dont touch it to much these days simply because i can't dock it and play on one of my monitors. i'm not much of a handheld guy, myself.

  •  

    bargains!

    Will try and get in on my lunch break, I wonder how much will actually be left? Wonder how much crap I will buy that I don't need…

    • +4 votes

      My prediction is that you got nothing from Target on your lunch break.

      •  

        Nada. Was a goose chase. Interesting to see how many upvotes this got given it was lacking any worthwhile deals by 1:30pm

        •  

          You snooze you lose I guess

  •  

    Wondering if there’s any chance to have anything good left by now

    Keep waiting on switch deal for a while

  •  

    Some people got lucky. Good find.

  •  

    I'll try visit tomorrow, but there will definitely be nothing good left by then. 😂

  •  

    willing to grab a switch lite black if anyone can buy extra!

    • +15 votes

      Would have got you one but they only had grey, yellow, aqua and coral left.

  • +13 votes

    No doubt the first person through the door will buy all of them to flip on eBay.

    Just went in, got myself a switch lite, they said that they had about 10 or so left, not many games left though

    •  

      I should have worked in the office today, working from home and miss out

      Thanks I called like 10 times and let it ring until someone finally answered, can't remember his name but he said Matt had some on hold out back for customers that ask for him directly because he's trying to boost his own sales to get a management position at a new store. Good luck, Matt!

    •  

      Thanks, finally found Matt.

      He was all "Huh I don't work at Target… wtf is ozbargain" I was like hahaha classic Matt

  •  

    Just went. All consoles out of stock. Still a few games.

  • +1 vote

    Switches still in stock at 11.51am (he said they had about 12 left)

    Guy said if anyone phones to ask they being told sold out to avoid disappointment

    •

      • -3 votes

    Wonder when Kippa Ring QLD is closing.

    I’m here now and they said none left

  •  

    Are target moving away from the gaming market like Kmart? My local doesn't have any games or consoles anymore.

    •  

      Target is closing. Kmart has actually gone down market. It is selling cheap and cheerful stuff. Say baby clothes, Kmart definitely is cheaper for similar product although Target has better organic cotton stuff. Seems like people are purely focused on price these days, therefore Kmart is doing well.

      You would think Target might do well in the middle market (for middle class) below Myer and David Jones. I'd say Target is closer to Big W than Kmart. Big W isn't making money either.

    Any joy cons or games left?

    Any other accessories worth mentioning?
