NEW YORK — While the weather last weekend hardly made for perfect shopping conditions, aboard the Target Holiday Boat, things were rocking. Literally.
The inclement weather kept crowds at home, but the retailer’s "boat store," docked at Chelsea Piers, is set up to accommodate long lines and hoards of people — although the only way to get there is by taxi, car or crosstown bus. A large white tent leading up to the boat was erected and decorated to evoke a Target-like feel and included red artificial-turf flooring, white walls and the Target bull’s-eye logo on everything from the employees’ sailor hats to Santa’s outfit.
