remain calm

Slight Update So, while I don't have any specific news from method to tell you yet (sometimes even they don't know, and have to do a little research! Who knew?) I will say that as of this moment only one of the three Targets around me have the listed method items on clearance. But as I've said before, every Target store runs on it's very own clearance schedule (something I've always thought was mighty weird.) So, I have a feeling that sooner or later, the others will catch up. If you happen to see a bunch of method products go on clearance, let method lust know!

I don't think this is a case of Target no longer carrying method products; more so they're just clearing a large group of them out. BUT that's never a good thing (less opportunities to find the items!) I did see that white tea body wash was part of the clearance as well (I missed that one on my list below) and it looks like the baby line is safe. More info. as I get it!

Alright everyone. Breathe deeply. We'll get through this together, I promise.

Ok, on my latest trip to Target, I've discovered the retail store seems to be decimating their method line! Clearance stickers out the yahzoo! I'm talking the omop, omop all purpose floor pad, omop wood pad, omop sweeper duster cloths, glass, granite and stainless steel microfiber cloths, go naked dish soap, go naked and pink grapefruit smarty dish cubes, almond flower creamy hand wash, almond flower body wash, squeaky green kids crisp apple body wash, fuzzy peach body wash (I didn't get a chance to check out the baby line), almond flower and white tea soap bars, and more! All on clearance! Gah!

What's going on here? I'm checking with method and will soon have a report back to let you know if these are going away at Target (forever?!), or making room for updated product (which would be the case with the dish cubes, I'm betting, since they're in new pouch packaging.) More information as it becomes available (cue news bleeps here!) These are only on first markdown at my local Target (but markdowns vary store to store.)

Do what?!

I need to get my hiney to MY Target and see what's up, too!!! If anything, I need to stock up! ;-)

I was at my Target last Friday and all was normal. They better not stop carrying Method!

I really hope we hear something soon! I'm starting to freak out...

The kids line of body washes are usually in the front, with the adult body washes (only the baby line is separate in the stores for some reason.)

Just talked to Todd at Method and he assured me that Method isn't leaving Target. Some stores are going though a re-staging and have things on clearance before the re-staging/realignment of their displays.

Todd also mentioned a new product coming soon. Gotta admit I am pretty excited!

Nathan Aaron said...

Yay! Thanks for the Target news, Jamison. Still seems a tad odd of them to clearance out SO many items, just to (I guess) bring them back? We'll see...

On the new product. Patience, Jamison! Patience! I'll have lots of details very soon! Didn't your mother ever teach you about patience? Ha ha!

I'm sure you already know this, but Lowe's has a HUGE Method selection, at least mine does! They had an entire endcap dedicated to Method: laundry (including Squeaky Green detergent and dryer cloths!), cleaning, oMop, microfiber and hand soaps. Only thing I didn't see were the quilted soaps, body washes and baby/kids' lines. But also as a heads' up, Lowe's had an entire line of something I'd never seen before: Simple Green cleaning supplies (not the basic SG concentrate) but floor, counter, hand, NATURAL CARPET AND UPHOLSTERY cleaner (something lots of us have been asking Method for), bath, dish, etc...... Just a heads' up. I'm loyal to my Method. :)

Oh silly Nathan! I know the secret new product. I'll be kind though and not burst your bubble and allow you to tell our fellow Method Lusters.
