I've been calling my local Target every couple of days to see if they have received any of the new Mini's. I purchased an original mini when they had the trade-in offer, and was planning on returning it for the retina mini when they became available. Anyone found one at a Target store yet?

Nope didn't find one. Just like you I did the exactly the same thing and I have found none in fact in my area they do not have tags for the iPad mini Retina and they have not received their first shipment either. I call every day ask them to check and give them the DPCI number.

I too did the same thing. Bought an original mini and would like to exchange it for a retina mini but no stores have them near me. My target receipt says I have until 2/24 to return it so I'm hoping they will get some in stock before then.

I did the same thing but bought a mini 1 with the trade gift card. Luckily my Target had 5 white 16 gb rMini's in last Sunday and I grabbed one. I am located in The Philadelphia Suburbs.

Well I checked with my local target it now seems they have replaced their display case with the newer iPads. They told me maybe this week or next week they may get some in according to the store personal.

Yes my target store also updated their display units. Under ipad mini retina it says "coming soon". I asked around but the employees didn't know when they would be coming in.

There are 16 GB and 32 GB Wi-Fi rMinis at my local Target. Curious whether they'll carry LTE models in store though... They have LTE Airs, so I suppose it's only a matter of time before they stock LTE rMinis too.

Some of the models of Retina Mini are available on Target online. I had done the same as some of you - traded in my iPad 1 and bought a regular mini to trade in for a Retina mini. I returned the regular mini to the store, got a gift card and ordered the Retina mini online on Tuesday. It came today - 64GB Grey.
