Target no longer price matching/ Moving Starbucks stuff to floor

According to this, the Starbucks stuff didn't get trashed like that other thread said. (Unless they just trashed the food?)

Also, in case anyone was wondering, there will be no price matching during the liquidation. (I have no idea how reliable this link is.)

Edit:
I guess I can't say smart canucks here... :(
Target have not yet announced store closings and official liquidation has not started, but they have made some changes in stores. Stores are no longer price-matching and many stores are already saying items are final sale. Some forum users mentioned that staff have said gift cards will not be accepted after February 1st despite their original promise to accept gift cards through liquidation.

They have also closed Starbucks in all Target stores. If you love Starbucks mugs and other items, they have been moved into the store so watch for them once liquidation starts!

Wow that's shady. Didn't they just give out gift cards with the Ipad minis? And now they won't accept them after Feb 1st?

Where did you read this as it states on their website you can use them right through the liquidation period.

No updates on changes to the gift cards.
I'd consider any news via team members to have a high degree of reliability.

Creditors will be in line to score some of the Target money when liquidators run the stores.

@spham -stock up on Old El Paso taco kits ($2.99), 2 for $7 pop cases and other munchies for Super Bowl. Get some nice home decor and your $120 is spent.

In the link the OP put up it says some staff members have said that. And I know Target said they would still honour gift cards, but their word means nothing to me considering their company will cease to exist very soon. I'm going to use it ASAP and would rather not take the risk. Besides, more stock is available now to choose from.

Damn I was hoping it was syrups and stuff. I want to get my hands on the frap base because a friend likes their fraps and I'm curious to see if I can replicate it without having to spend $50 on eBay.

Honestly if I had a gift card I'd be using it now. Once they go into creditor protection all bets are off.

I can imagine Target's final sale on Jan 31: Get the equivalent value in Gift Cards for every dollar of your purchases. So buy $100, get $100 Gift Card.

In microscopic print: We no longer accept gift cards starting Feb 01.

some places stopped price matching, even though liquidation hasn't started yet.
