Dear Target,

I just wanted to say thank you for reopening your mall entrance. I was shopping around on Friday buying some last minute essentials for my son's third birthday party (at least that's what I told my husband). I may have hit up Bath & Body Works for 30 minutes doing some non-essential shopping...but, when wall plug-ins are 5 for $25...it's kind of an essential trip--you get it.

(Anyway, back to my point)

I was fully prepared to have to exit through the child's play area doors where the germy children play, drop off my shopping bags at the car before re-entering through the main doors at the front of Target. I wasn't happy about it, but we're all making sacrifices.

I was kind of in a time crunch because I just spent way too much time in B&BW. When I got to Pretzel Maker, I looked up and noticed that, like a sign from heaven, your doors were open again.

I was so excited, I almost cried out. I had a really stupid excited look on my face that was luckily covered up by my mask. Honestly, if you don't at least share in my excitement a little bit...are you even from central Minnesota?

I rushed into the store, grabbed a cart, and immediately ran over to the toy aisle to do some last minute (and I do mean last minute) birthday shopping. I did notice that instead of the closed door, you had a sanitization station set up instead.

I just want you to know, Target, that I really appreciate you and I'll never take your mall entrance for granted again. It's just too convenient for a mom who doesn't like cardio.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Your pal, Ash
