A Jefferson County woman has filed a federal lawsuit against Target Corporation, claiming two area stores did not give her full credit for manfacturers’ coupons she presented for purchases of baby wipes, frozen meals and baby food in September.

Target’s treatment of manufacturers’ coupons — not giving full value for the coupons — has been the subject of news stories since this summer.

Amy Reilly, spokeswoman for the Minnesota-based store chain, told The Birmingham News on Thursday that the chain had implemented a systemwide fix for Target stores nationwide to address the manufacturers’ coupon issue. “We certainly regret the inconvenience to guests,” she said.

Target often blames glitches in its computer system to account for the company-wide behavior “but they never correct these glitches,” according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Birmingham on behalf of Michelle Norris against Target Corp. and Target Stores Inc., seeks class action status in order to represent others nationwide who presented a valid manufacturer’s coupon for merchandise since Nov. 1, 2004. The lawsuit was filed by W. Daniel “Dee” Miles, III, who heads the Consumer Fraud Section of Montgomery based law firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C.
