Their blurb:
April 20, 2017
Wa-hoo! Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Switch launches April 28, and we’re juuuust a little excited. While our fave mustachioed plumbers gear up, we’re over here dodging banana peels and flying turtle shells, and racing red carts up and down the aisles to bring you some extra-special fun—only at Target. Starting today, 650+ stores across the country are going into full game-on mode, with larger-than-life Mario action.

Target has been guests’ go-to Nintendo destination for 30+ years. From scooping up the 1985 original NES to scoping out this spring’s highly-coveted Nintendo Switch, Target is often fans’ first stop before hitting start on a gaming adventure. So, we’re out to make the shopping experience just as fun!

If they do this at our Target, there won't be any trolleys left after the first couple of days!! :D

I can already see people getting thrown out of the store for racing up and down the aisles in teams, one person sitting in the cart and another pushing.

I'll probably be one of them.

The big red orbs out front of the store have Mario & Luigi heads covering them, & when you go through the entry doors, they play the race-start signal sound.
Downside: Only a handful of each store's carts have the decals.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Haha, my Target has so completely given up on ever getting more Switches that the case they're meant to be displayed in has been housing Ones and PS4s for the last month. I'm not sure they ever got a shipment after the pre-orders.

I didn't notice decorated carts when I was there today, but it's a city store, so not many people use carts to begin with. Might've just missed them.
