Did You Shop the Vineyard Vines Collection at Target? If Not, You May Be Out of Luck…
The Vineyard Vines collection for Target launched on May 18th, both in-store and online in the wee hours of the morning. And just like their Hunter for Target Collection that launched in April 2018, many of the highly-anticipated items sold out online within a matter of hours!
The experience at many Target stores across the country was not much better!
We sent a team member out to their Target store early on Saturday morning, and they discovered a HUGE line of customers ready and eager to shop this new collection as soon as the doors opened.
Good News & Bad News!
The good news I was just at my local Target store in Reno, NV, and spotted quite a large selection of Vineyard Vines items still available to purchase, including the Vineyard Vines Wooden Whale Cut-Out Wall Decor, Vineyard Vines Flag Whale and Gingham Bean Bag Set, and more!
The bad news is that Target reps have stated that the Vineyard Vines collection will not be replenished, so if you missed out, you’re out of luck for now. See Target’s Twitter comment below:
Check out what Hip2Save readers experienced on May 18th:
Went to my local target at around 8:45 AM on May 18th (just routine shopping) and it was madness! I overheard one of the managers speaking to a representative from Vineyard Vines, and the rep. said it was the biggest opening he’s seen (over 100 at 8:00 AM). The funny thing is that I live in a smallish town with less than 8K – who knew?! All of the clothing and most of the home items were long gone by the time I walked in.
I walked in my store at about 8:05 AM, and the whole area was packed already. There just happened to be my size left in what I wanted. The only thing I really wanted that they didn’t have was the pink half zip, I did get one for my daughter. I am happy I didn’t get anything online because I probably would have ordered the wrong sizes. I usually wear size 4 shorts and the 0 fit me perfectly. I never would have ordered that size. The home items weren’t selling that fast, still had plenty when I left, and they were restocking the bags. And the baby stuff was still there.
So I made it to the store a few minutes before they opened with only a few other ladies waiting outside. Got all the things I wanted except the polo which that store didn’t receive, and checked out, all within 15 minutes! Got lucky!
I checked at 4 AM central time, and they were sold out of the shirts I was wanting to get my boys.
Items are all gone, no restocking. You can check back to see if anyone returns anything, but more than likely it will be sold on eBay for 3 times the price before it is returned.
Another Target fiasco. Limited I understand, but selling out in 10 minutes, as you are checking out in the middle of the night in the east. Over 400 items already on eBay. Go Target! 🙁
