Looks like most Target don't carry this. Obviously Target is trying to get back Walmart by posting this Lego set most of their Target stores don't carry (or removed?) and they know people will just price match at Walmart.
Got one at the Everett, MA store. Rang up at reg price, brought it to customer service with the flyer and the manager overrode it with no problem. I had the $5 off coupon from the catalog so total was $25 plus tax. There was one set left on the shelf. Thank you OP! This will either be a gift to my son or Toys for Tots. Depends on how many more deals like this come along.
Looking online it isn't showing up as being sold at any local stores! Strange, seeing as how there are several to choose from. Is the ghost train in the print ad too? It's listed as being $30 but shows up at the right price when you click on it.
***PRO TIP FOR LOCATING A STORE NEAR YOU WITH THIS ITEM IN STOCK ON THE TARGET SITE***
When I tried to search by ZIP CODE, it said "SORRY, BUT NO TARGET WITHIN 100 MILES HAS THIS ITEM IN STOCK" (Yes, I double checked the ZIP code)
Then I used CITY/STATE SEARCH instead and it showed me all the local Targets and which ones had the item in stock
Hope that helps!!

First of all, Reps and Thumbs Up to OP 1) Printed screenshot of my local store Ad on Target site showing zoomed view of this ad. 2) Went into Target after checking stock online. Grabbed 2 off the shelf, at least 3 left. 3) Went to register, they rang up at $85 each, I presented the ad. Guy laughed and called manager. (Not a bad attitude, he said "I'm sure they will honor it, I just need a manager to approve") 4) Manager came over, read the ad once or twice, shrugged and said "Go ahead and discount it". I paid my $65 and waltzed out a happy SD'er.
Nice catch. I didn't even bother with Target. I first tried calling Target this morning, but they were closed. Then called Walmart, but spent 30 minutes on the phone just to find out they didn't have it in stock. After that, I realized you can use the Walmart app to see which stores have it in stock. I went to a different store and picked it up for $30. They asked to see the ad and made sure that it wasn't an online ad, but an in store ad. A much better deal than Amazon's special deal.
thats for the info on the walmart app worked great to check store avail by me...
Hot deal. Good luck finding at a Target store. I was able to find 1 at Walmart and 1 at ToysRUs and both price matched without any significant issue. Walmart didn't question at all. TRU had to think about it and call 2 Managers, but they gave it to me. They were curious about the ad saying normal price of $39.99, but gave in when I pointed out that the Lego # of 7962 was a match.
Our Target doesn't carry this anymore, the ADVENT calendars are in its spot but I was able to PM at Walmart. I do wonder if this was a little payback for the Mine Set a few weeks ago! Either way we win!
local walmart priced matched with no issue. customer service rep was "wow!!!!" when she saw how much walmart retail it for...at my store it's $69.97, "rolled back" from $89.97. she did scan the ad pretty carefully matching the set and checking the expiration date on it.
got the zombie set put aside at a target not close to me - no problem picking it up or using the $5 off coupon.
as info, when i called a target that said they had limited stock the rep i spoke to said they no longer sell it and that it has been, i can't remember the phrase she used, but equivalent to clearanced. i wonder if this set is being discontinued?
