The Target in Brick, NJ has had the punch-in, whether or not there is more in the stock-room type price scanners for over a year now - so it's not one of those cases where they just put new price scanners in.
Perhaps the computers were just acting screwing as a side-effect of pending reset.
This is the same Target where they have over-run their Star Wars aisle with all manner of crap simply because they don't have the SW stock to fill the aisle.
You know - Hasbro PAY$ to have a "feature aisle" like that, Target just doesn't GIVE them one. Granted some of that "pay" may be in the form cheaper cost to Target for exclusives, more exclusives, etc.... nevertheless, Hasbro still gave Target "something" to have that aisle through August.
Now since Hasbro can't get the stock to the stores fast enough, they've filled the aisle with toys from all of Hasbro's competitors.
Good job Hasbro!!!
