My Target upped the price to $10.99 a week or so ago. I see that the shelf tag is still $10.99 and on my receipt it said the figure I bought yesterday was $7.99 marked down from $10.99. But the sale tag on the peg says on sale, down from $8.99.
Sounds like a case of the sale tags being printed prior to the price increase. Still have no idea why Target bumped the price $2 when all they had were a handful of wave 4 peg warmers like Tunnel Rat, Scarlett and Ripcord.
On the plus side, I walked into Target on Sunday and smack into the middle of a case 3 restock. Score one Storm Shadow!!
