North American retail chain Target has announced that they are halting the sales of Pokemon cards on Friday at their retail units. The move comes as demand for the cards has skyrocketed during the pandemic leading to chaotic and sometimes violent events. The retailer cities “an abundance of caution” as their reason for not selling the cards at their stores. You can still purchase Pokemon cards on the Target website. The Pokemon Company previously released a statement back in February saying that it is “aware that some fans are experiencing difficulties purchasing certain Pokémon trading card products due to a very high demand and global shipping constraints impacting g availability.” Good luck if you are trying to get yours!
