I know that there has been discussion about Amazon's poor shipping practices when it comes to vinyl, but I haven't yet seen anything regarding Target. I've ordered a few records from Target over the years and have never had an issue until this week. I took advantage of their Black Friday B2G1 sale and reserved some for in-store pickup. About half of the records I reserved were no longer available, so I opted to have them shipped instead. Sunday I received one of the records in an oversized cardboard box with no protective packaging. Frustrating, but there wasn't any major damage. Monday rolled around and I got a second album shipped the same way. Today two more of the albums I ordered showed up, each shipped in a big plastic bag - like the kind you'd get clothes shipped in - not padded or anything. Naturally, they're in horrible shape with bent corners and rounded edges. I went to start the return process on their website but they only offered to reship the item once I send the damaged ones back - no in-store option - so instead of doing that I canceled the return and will be going to the store. I believe Target ships some items from their actual stores so I get that not all of these employees may be pros, but one would think it'd be common sense not to ship fragile records this way. I have a few other albums on the way and I'm really hoping they are packaged better. I also ordered glass ornaments with one of the vinyl orders and I don't have high hopes for those either Just wanted to make you aware if you are considering ordering vinyl from Target!
