Their stock locators have been doing that all week. When it says no store within 100 miles, it more likely just means the locator is down right now. If it was working, it would still show you out of stock in all stores if that was the case.
"Sorry. There are no Target stores located within 100 miles of the city San Francisco and state California.Make sure the information you entered is correct, or try a new search."
The only retail chain I know of that has forensic tech advanced enough that the Secret Service and FBI outsource work to them, but can't get a inventory checker working well enough to even detect their stores in a given location.
I got one. Rang up $9.99, didn't even need my print out from Target.com.
Store availability first said that there weren't any Target stores within 100 miles of me!!! Not, as in, non in stock, but trying to tell me that there were no actual B&M stores within 100 miles of me. Obviously not correct. I tried again and saw limited stock at all the locations close to me.
Went to my favorite Target. Couldn't find it on the shelves- couldn't even find a place holder for it.
Flagged down a 'Red" and gave him the DCPI. He said that they had a few in the stock room. He went and got me one. Score!

^^^^^Same story here (store availability no B&M store in 100 miles, but input new zip showed limited stock at nearby 10 stores and 1 out of stock.) Drove to one, none out, asked employee with DPCI and brought 2 out of the stock room. Scanned $9.99.
