Clever move and one that could be a sales builder if well executed. I keep an Amazon wish list and many times buy from it. This will be another easy way to add items to it to review in more depth later and buy if it fits my needs!

Competing with Walmart on price isn't a winning strategy. Focus needs to be more on how Target can differentiate their offering based on their core strengths. Otherwise, Walmart will simply adjust on pricing and Target will once again be at a disadvantage.

This seems like something that could be used in various circumstances, like showing the build of the crown during an event or grand opening. It could also be used to show local produce growing, for example. There is always an application for these types of things but to what...
