While perusing the local ads this weekend to determine who is going to have the new seasons of Fringe and Grey's Anatomy at the lowest price, we noticed something new in the Target circular. Installation, delivery and tech support!

Although Target might be known for it's great prices and convenience of shopping, it isn't exactly known for it's customer service. Helping you find a product — sure. Installing it or answering actual tech questions about it — that's best left to the nerds down the street.

Although many of us might scoff at the idea of having someone from Target talk you through an installation or having a team member come to your house to do an install, we know many folks are intimidated by large electronics stores or hiring independent professionals and would appreciate the service. Plus, having helped many a homeowner try to fit a big screen tv in their pint sized vehicle (ex-Target team member representing!), we're 100% positive there's many who would take advantage of delivery!

Do you think it will take off for the red and white bullseye retailer or fade away as if it never existed? Sound off in the comments below!
