With August in full swing and many cities reaching critical limits when it comes to energy usage, we really have to hand it to large, big box retailers who are doing their part to be conservative. When leaving our local Target this weekend, we ran across this sign:
Although all of our small steps to conserve energy are fantastic and make a difference, all of that hard work can be washed away from retailers who are turning the AC up in order to keep stores cooler.
We actually found our local Target to be more enjoyable with lights dimmed, less registers and cashiers and more associates on the floor to help customers. We didn't miss the extra light or couple of degrees on the thermostat and applaud them for taking a stance against a much larger issue.
