I may actually use this one. There's another one opening on the Upper East. If they carry basics like Bounty in bulk I may go for it, but some of the Manhattan locations are grossly overpriced for such basic things. You can get a better deal at CVS.

Are the prices for items different than pricing at Targets in Queens and Brooklyn? That seems unfair.

They most certainly are. I go to the one in Tribeca sometimes to look for an item or two after I stop at Whole Foods and am just amazed. Sometimes I opt to get it at another Target entirely. The mark-up on the Manhattan locations compared to Queens and Brooklyn is just ridiculous. I went to buy some razor blades and even those were marked up, but the cashier did something and gave them to me based on the price online, which can also be lower than what the stores charge.

I saw a lot of people on Yelp complaining about it too. Supposedly if you ask at the store, they can offer you the price online, but some people have been shot down. Likely depends on the employee. Since I carry my own bags, I do get the maximum allowed on the bags though at the register, which is $.20.

Duane Reade/Walgreen stores in Manhattan have different pricing depending on it's location (stores in the more touristy areas are pricier) so I can imagine prices being different at a different borough. H&M too vary in pricing depending on the branch all within the same borough, Manhattan.

I don't either. I only shop for the bare basics, and mainly food staples like organic cereal. If you like Cascadian Farms, you can get a nice deal on a few boxes. Their organic selection in terms of meats is almost next to none, so I don't bother with that, and most the fruit selection is not great either (not local most times). The only thing I really go for there is to get the Harry razors. They are kind of expensive, so I either opt for the 4 pack or the 8 pack, but they do last a while so it sort of evens out. Aside from that I may pick up some bottled water and maybe a few snacks, but overall their selection in terms of GMO free and organic is pretty lackluster. They have stopped carrying certain brands too so I come out with less and less. However for Bounty and toilet paper, it's still a decent deal to buy there in bulk depending on the location, and I do like that they have self-checkout now, so I can shop and checkout quickly.

If you aren't going for food and other basics, I find that just about everything there is made in China.

Most of the Duane Reade's are now closed and for good reason. Grossly overpriced and the cashiers had some of the worst attitudes. Stopped shopping there years ago... At least with CVS they do have some deals and there's self-checkout.

The prices at the Lower East Side Target are the same as online and any other Target I've gone to, including but not limited to Chicagoland, Cambridge, Indiana, and New Jersey. I don't buy in bulk, so I have no reason to really go to any other Targets other than the closest one. I'm confused.

They may have stopped with the mark-ups in some locations because of customer backlash. When I saw the mark-ups on some things, I simply walked out without them. That's the whole point of shopping at Target in the first place...
