Have you ever met a Cashier / Customer Service Rep who went above and beyond their call of duty?
While we were in Grapevine, Texas last week, we headed to Target the night before BlissDom, a blogging/social media/pr media conference we work for, began. There were a few things they needed to get for a couple of the sponsor suites and we wanted to hit one of our favourite department stores in the US while we could.
Thanks to their free WiFi, I was able to take a few pictures of dresses I thought my daughter would like but I had to make sure she’d like them… she’s 12 after all! So I snapped and uploaded to Facebook and waited for her response. It’s a great way to shop and much cheaper than incurring my Canadian-Phone-Provider-Hates-USA-Roaming data charges.
It was easy to lose track of time among all the great deals us Canadians rarely have access too.
We called our hotel for a shuttle but were told they weren’t picking up at that time of the night. We were about to call a cab when the kindest soul in the world offered to drive us back to where we were staying. YUP! She asked if we wouldn’t mind sticking around until after she was off, she’d drive us back.
SHE HANDED US HER CAR KEYS and told us to load up our things and she’d be out shortly.
Did you get that?!
She trusted these three crazy strangers from Canada with her vehicle.
When she was finished with her work, she drove us to a place where we could eat dinner. In all our US-shopping-glory haze, we’d forgotten to eat… we convinced her to join us for a burger. We had a great time getting to know Debbie from Target in Texas.
If you don’t believe me… check out the pictures.
I am writing a letter to the Grapevine, Texas Target to let them know what a GEM they have in Debbie.
Now when we think of Target in the US, we’ll think of Debbie and each time we think of Debbie, we will be reminded that there are still GOOD people in this world!
This has become their brand/logo to us. Target = Kindness. 🙂
