Not sure you’ll be able to get up in time to hit the stores the day after Thanksgiving to buy all the action figures you’ll need for the holidays? Darth Vader can help. (Thanks, Target!)
In a move that is drawing national attention for Target as its gears up for its two-day after-Thanksgiving sale, the Minneapolis-based discounter is offering customers pre-recorded telephone wake-up calls.
Shoppers who want to hit the sale early can register at target.com/wakeup to receive a wake-up call on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. Options include hearing a crowing rooster, crying baby, male heartbreaker, and several celebrities including Ice-T, Cheech Marin, supermodel Heidi Klum and Star Wars bad guy Darth Vader.
