Target, Beloved by Regular San Franciscans, Opens New Store October 14th – Gift Card Giveaways Until Then

Friday, September 28th, 2012

I’ll tell you, there are two kinds of San Franciscans:

1. People who know / care about who the current Mayor is; and

2. People who think the Mayor of San Francisco is still Gavin Newsom or Willie Brown or Dianne Feinstein*

A third of the first group welcomes the new City Target store, a third doesn’t care, and a third opposes this corporate chain-store invasion, man.

And the second group? They either don’t care or they welcome this store.

Golfing for Gift Cards and Bullseye doggie dolls:

*Which you know, isn’t too far from the truth, IRL.

(Oh, which of the two groups listed above is larger? The second one.)

I, for one, welcome our new corporate overlords.

As does Charlize Theron:

Feel free to continue shopping online until October 14th.

(And hey, where’s our Masonic and Geary Target, when’s that one coming?)

See you at the City Target on the Second Sunday of October 2012!

That’s How They Get You: San Francisco’s Costco Sells Jollibee Gift Cards But Our Sole Jollibee is All Shut Down

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Now, you’d think that San Francisco would have a straight-outta-Quezon City Jollibee Chicken & Burgers fast foodery but you’d be wrong. We used to have one down near that whole Lapu Lapu, Mabini, Bonifacio, Rizal alley maze situation in the SoMA, but  it’s gone. Our sole JB is all gone.

So what’s the point of getting this card to give away for Christmas if all you’re doing is forcing the recipient to journey to another county or state to cash it in?

Next thing you know, our Costco #144 will be selling Sonic gift cards.

Anyway, that’s how they get you.
