On Target

I LOVE this store, seriously I could just about live there. It has everything, and it has the added convenience of being located just a 5 minute drive from my house. The people that work there recognize me on site (the ones that have worked there more than 5 minutes anyway), they are always friendly, and their prices aren't too bad. I do however have one large complaint. Every time I go through the check out line and have finished my purchase I feel like they can't get me out of the line quick enough.
I don't know if I expressed that correctly.
Here let me explain...
I went there on Saturday
(twice, and S went once. Note to self: check pantry before running to store for cake making supplies)
I got what I needed, and was asked by someone if there was anything that they could help me find at least once.
I stood in fairly short line that was moving pretty quickly despite the full cart of the woman in front of me.
I was greeted warmly by the person who was ringing me up.
I was not offered a credit card for my purchase of 5 bags of powered sugar, or the cocoa I purchased on the second trip.
(It is always a good trip when NOT offered a credit card)
I paid for my purchase and before I could be handed my receipt the checker was already greeting a ringing up the next person in line.
I was trying to gather my bags and there was already one sitting there for the person in line behind me.
Is it just me?
Am I the only one that find this to be extremely impolite?
This happens every time too!
I have been tempted to go an complain to the management, but I have a feeling that the management is the one forcing them to do this. In this rushed society we live in more and more stores are doing this, but I have to admit that as much as I love this store, they are definitely the worse!
That is however my only complaint about this place.
Other than that I absolutely love it!
By the way, do not tell me to go here, I am completely boycotting this store because well...
I have my reasons.

Is it the one in Layton? 'Cause that happened to me the other day. I'd barely finished and started to ask a question and they'd already started on the next person - before I'd even moved!

For Rude!!

It was indeed the one in Layton! Glad it isn't just me.

I SO agree! But for me it's not just that store, it's every store. I can't even open my wallet to put my credit card back in or my money away before they've already filled the next person's first bag. I feel like i'm in the way and so inconveniencing everyone else, but can I have 10 short seconds to pack up before I'm shoved outof the way??? Yes, you said it, girl!
