Mini Target Stores

 

Target recently announced plans to open four new small-format stores on or near college campuses, with three more set to open this fall. And by the end of 2017, Target plans to open nearly 30 new small-format stores in dense urban and suburban markets and on college campuses.

Since many of these smaller stores are located near college campuses, they will be filled with college student essentials like food, dorm essentials and decor, tech and more! And each location will offer locally relevant products and even convenient hubs to pick up online orders.

Self-checkout kiosks will be near doors to provide quick and easy access to purchases on the way to class. There will also be a Starbucks with charging outlets and cozy seating.

Solar Eclipse Aug.21- Where to See It and More

Have you heard about the full eclipse coming soon? You can check here to see if you are in the path, or how close you are. The lucky states are: OR, ID, MT, WY, NE, KS, IA, MO, IL, KY, TN, GA, NC, SC. Click on your state name here. Only limited parts of each state are included. Scroll down here for detailed tips for viewing in each state. 


The closer you are to the very center of the path, the longer the total darkness will last, up to about 2 minutes 40 seconds. If you are out of the path, you won't see anything without glasses.  If you plan to view the eclipse, it’s important that you have the right eye protection as looking directly at the eclipse can cause serious damage to your eyes! According to NASA, unsafe eclipse glasses are being sold in the United States so it is super important that you look for an “ISO” Icon with reference 12312-2 on the glasses. NASA recommends buying from one of the following five companies to ensure truly safe glasses: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium (AstroSolar Silver/Gold film only), Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17. See NASA safety info here for more information.

For those in 100% darkness, it will be just like nighttime, with stars shining and crickets chirping.

 

Even if you are in the path of 100% darkness, you still need the glasses, leading up to the 2 minutes of totality.

 Click below to check them out!

I've also read some libraries are giving them out for free. It might be worth calling your local library to see if they are participating.

Battery Class Action 

This class-action lawsuit alleges that several battery manufacturers fixed their cylindrical lithium-ion battery cells’ prices. “Individuals and businesses may have paid more for certain products which contained these lithium-ion batteries,” due to the alleged collusion, the settlement website explains.

The defendants, including LG Chem, Hitachi Maxell and NEC, deny the claims but settled the case for $44.95 million. Now it’s your turn to request a piece of the payout.

How to Submit Your Claim

To submit a claim, visit reversethecharge.com and click “claim form” at the top of the page. Select your applicable products or replacement batteries — choose from laptops, mobile phones, smart phones, audio players, cameras, camcorders or cordless power tools — and verify whether you purchased those items for yourself or business purposes.

Enter your name, email address, ZIP code and phone number, hit submit, and you’re done!

Target Restock

Target wants to encourage customers to order more everyday basics online, and to order those items all in one single shipment. That’s why the retailer wants you to fill a box that’s roughly the size of a shopping cart with non-perishable food and household goods, which will be delivered to you the next day for five bucks. Does that sound like Amazon’s Prime Pantry? It should, except that Restock’s shipping is slightly cheaper and a lot faster.

So far, the program is only open to people who have Target’s RedCard and who live in the retailer’s home state of Minnesota. Customers can fill the giant box with their household products, food, or baby and pet supplies, and then have it shipped for a $4.99 flat rate.

The beta version of Restock has a separate site to shop on and its own inventory of items, like Prime Pantry. Orders placed by 2 p.m. will arrive by the end of the next day.

Abby's Review: Truly Pawsome


Recently Abby got to try Truly Pawsome. Truly Pawsome is a monthly subscription box of 4-5 hand selected natural, eco-friendly and quality doggie treats and toys.

Truly Pawsome offers doggie parents the chance to select items by size of their dog along with a variety of subscription options - 1 - 3 - 6 - 12 month plans. Truly Pawsome offers free shipping and partnering with one canine rescue center, Rocket Dog Rescue, which receives 10% of all proceeds. How awesome is that?
Abby received a box of toys and treats for review. All opinions are our own.
