    So...

    Are there any Targets near the Botcon locale? I honestly don't know, I live in a country devoid of that chain.

    Main thing is, I need to hit some form of Target to get a couple extras on my DS moviegames. >.>

    There are Targets in every state but Vermont, Alaska and Hawaii. You can go to the Target website and go to the store locater. Type in the address or the zip code of where you are staying to see the closest Target to you.

    ANSWER: Not IN Providence. However...

    There are Targets in Smithfield, Lincoln, Warwick, RI / Seekonk, & Attleboro, MA.

    I was at the warwick and smithfield Targets just 2 days ago and they were fresh out of any Robovision Optimus Primes. You should call them to see it they have it before you go there.

    There really isn't any toy worthy place in Providence except for the KB Toys and Newbury Comics in Providence Place mall.

    If you want stores like Target, ToysRus, Wal-Mart, KB Toys, Kmart, etc then you'd have to go to Warwick, Smithfield, Cranston, etc.

    Ask me which store you are looking for and I can give you locations.

    Well maybe they could bribe driving people with beer and get a ride.

    In the name of safety, buy the beer after the trip... well actually drunken out of staters would probally drive better than the locals...

    I have a car and know where most of the stores in the area are. I'm up for doing a toy run at some point.
    Though most of the stores in Southeastern MA are picked over and low on stock. Hopefully theyh will be restocked soon.

    As of 2008, that statement will be incorrect. Anchorage, Alaska is going to be getting two Targets next year. Woo! I'm thrilled!

    But that does nothing to help us now, does it? :p 

    EDIT: Badabing, first post!

    We stayed in Seekonk, MA. We had close access to Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, and Target within walking distance. Wonderful if you needed something on the fly.

    When we visited Providence downtown area, it was typical for a city where you can't easily find this stuff. However, we did not visit the mall during normal operating hours. Maybe they had something?

    During Botcon? Hell No!
    I live in Providence and me and my brother checked all the stores. Picked dry by convention-goers. Even the Hot Topic employees were sent out to other Hot Topic stores to retrieve Transformer Shirts for their store because their stock was depleted. Barricade shirt was the first one to go. :(  The only store that had TF movie stuff was Newbury Comics. And even that was a bleak selection.
