    a DCPI number is Department Code Product Inventory look up number or something to that effect for Target only, you can enter it at one of those old school price check scanners or walk up to a target employee and ask them to key it in and look up inventory for the store or surrounding stores.

    for the scanners you can just scan the product or shelf tag and it will tell you if there is backstock or not.

    SKU is the product UPC code or product for a specific store, SKU's usually are for bestbuy, toysrus or barcoded items that been transfered to shorter digits,to simplify.

    It's DPCI, not DCPI. DePartment, Class, and Item number. :) 

    I have no idea why that bugs me so much, but 90% of the time, people seem type it the wrong way. And no, I don't work at Target.

    Not that it really matters, at least for the Target one, they are only updated once a day, so they have no idea if its accurate or not. Unless of course they have alot of what your looking for somewhere else. IE: don't go all the way across the county to a Target that indicates 1-2 in stock. Now a dozen is worth it.
