LAST UPDATED: February 3rd, 2023

Officially created in 1962, Target was one of very few stores that combined fashion, quality, and service with the low prices of a discount store. As time went on, Target became more and more popular and began to branch out all over the United States. Now known for its motto of “Expect more, pay less”, Target strives for just that. This company wants their customers feeling like they are receiving a strong amount of quality for an appropriate price in all of their products. Target may not be just a furniture store, but they do have home furnishing options that may just entice the everyday customer.

The Good

  • Range of products
  • Practical and affordable
  • Return policy

Target has many great values going for them. They are a department store ranging from products in clothing and food, to things such as home and furniture. Selling furniture in their stores allows customers the convenience of purchasing items from all different departments in one place.  The categories of furniture they sell include lamps and lighting, rugs, bedding, bath, dining and entertainment and kid's home. The furniture sold at Target stores is found to be practical and affordable for those looking for the simple or temporary lifestyle. Other products are more durable and satisfactory for the everyday home. The combination of these products create shopping opportunities for all customers.  One plus about Target is their free shipping option. If customers pay for over $25 in merchandise they are eligible for free shipping which is very appreciated by many people I'm sure. With their slogan being "expect more, pay less", it's not a surprise to find promotions or deals popping up everywhere on their website. They are working to help customers find what they are looking for at the most convenient cost they can. Another benefit Target brings is that they have a solid return policy. They offer a standard 1 year warranty for all of their store-owned products. Products that are not store owned may be returned within 90 days of purchase. Target also offers a RedCard that may be beneficial to some. Customers using a RedCard become available to receive 30 extra days to return items. These cardholders will receive 5% off every purchase and free shipping on every purchase. Another plus that Target is able to do involves price matching. If a customer brings in a coupon or proof of the same product that target owns that is priced lower than what Target has it priced at, Target will price match. They are willing to price match for their customers, but will not match any special promotions or deals that may be going on at another stores, only standard pricing items. Target has a lot to offer the everyday customer and brings options to those looking for quality at a reasonable price.

The Bad

  • Selection
  • Delivery
  • Additional fees

Although Target has many perks, there are a couple things that make buying furniture slightly more difficult through their store. Since it is a department store and has a variety of many other products, the furniture section is not as large as some might prefer. They have little options compared to other furniture stores that strictly focus on selling furniture and home accessories alone. Two other categories that were found slightly concerning were the advertising/sales category as well as their delivery category. Individuals were complaining of issues regarding purchases not being dispersed correctly on their debit cards, as well as other troubles including honoring promises/promotions that were made on their website. Delivery issues consisted of individuals not being able to track their items after they were shipped, not receiving their items in a timely manner, and not being able to communicate successfully about delivery concerns with any representative from the company.  Customers complained of spending countless unnecessary hours on the phone or via email negotiating or brain storming solutions to their predicaments. Something else to be cautious of might include the extra fees that may be added to the price of the furniture purchased if it is excessive or is being delivered to a home that is farther away from the distribution center. The website might say free shipping, but it is a good idea to always check into the fine details to ensure you know what you really are paying for.

The Bottom Line

We suggest Target as a quality store to purchase your home furnishing needs from. They may not have the largest selection of furniture that other stores may be able to provide, but what they do have includes quality products at a reasonable price. Target has a free shipping option and hassle-free return policy that helps cater to customer's needs. "Expect more, pay less" is very apparent in Target's advertising and promotions. Again, Target strives to provide their customers with the best. Potential customers need to keep in mind that those complaints are very minimal in comparison to the total amount of transactions or purchases that are made within the company. Overall, we recommend shopping for furniture at a Target store.

I've always enjoyed shopping at Target and have for many years. Their products are to my liking, and if I need help finding an item someone is there to help. If I have a return (seldom), they comply immediately.

Target always has a nice selection of home goods and kids clothing. Prices are usually good and the app has a good rewards program. I still get annoyed, however, that Target does not accept Apple Pay, only through their app, but I don’t want to load money onto it.

Generally like this store but not happy with their electronic gift cards which can't be used if you have fee dollars left and want to pay cash in addition to the card to purchase something priced as more than that so basically you lose those few last bucks on each card

I've been a Target shopper for years, purchasing from every department from electronics, to make-up, to clothing and groceries. I'm always pleased with the selections of brands, including their exclusive in-house brands. Their regular pricing is competitive, but the best deals are certainly the sale prices. I'm always pleased with the customer service as well. Their staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Recently I've been using the Target app to shop online and during covid lockdowns, heavily used the delivery pick-up options. This has become my preferred way to shop at Target, especially as we enter the holiday season. No more fighting the crowds! The app is very easy to use and I've never had any issues finding what I need. Again, the employees come through with excellent service.

Love Target! I can find everything I need under one roof (especially at Super Targets). I will say I'm not a big fan of their apparel section. It seems to have gone downhill in recent years, but what they lack in fashion and accessories they make up for in housewares, decor, food, etc. I love the app as well! Being able to order online and pickup in store is perfect for busy professionals or parents of little ones. The rewards points are amazing too!

Bought an iPad and an Apple pencil. Target shipped via FedEx. I got a delivery notice from FedEx but never received the package. My security camaras confirmed that NO package was delivered. Also, according to the FedEx driver the package was signed by H HENRY. This person doesn't exist in our house or for that matter our neighborhood. FedEx did want to do anything about it and Target just said it was delivered. I lost the money. NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE CROOKS!

Target usually has slightly nicer stuff than a place like walmart with a small increase in price. I don't go too often because I can find nicer household items for cheaper at places like homegoods and cheaper food at many grocery stores.

Much better alternative than competitors in my opinion. Normally has clean parking lots, clean aisles and items are stocked/shelved in an orderly fashion. Occasionally I've found food that has surpassed its "best if used by" date but this would be the exception; not the rule. My preferred place for casual household shopping.

Target's dedication to customer service is admirable. Once I step foot into a Target store, I have employees asking me "how are you" and "can I help you with anything". It is truly refreshing not to have to hunt down employees for help. Target also ensures that if they don't have the products I want in-store, they'll order it for me making my shopping experience as seamless as possible.

For smaller home goods and small furniture pieces Target is hard to beat. I like that they do not skimp on quality like other econo retail stores. If Target sells it-you can trust it to last. I like the fashion forward feel of their inventory. It's all very plush and modern. No old fogey stuff here. I also like how helpful the store associates are, very knowledgable.
