(The Birmingham News) – A Jefferson County woman has filed a federal lawsuit against Target Corporation, claiming two area stores did not give her full credit for manufacturers’ 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.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
