MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio middle school teacher says an employee at a local Target store told her she couldn’t shop with about 25 students buying items for charity.

Sandy Bean tells The Plain Dealer newspaper she and other Mayfield teachers have for about five years taken students to the Mayfield Heights Target to buy items for a Cleveland-area crisis nursery. She says they spend about $2,000.

She says she called Monday to tell a manager they’d be coming Friday and was told there weren’t enough cashiers.

The Minneapolis-based Target Inc. apologized Tuesday, saying the store leader contacted the teacher and the students will be shopping there Friday.

A phone listing for a Sandra Bean in Cleveland rang unanswered Tuesday evening. A message seeking comment was sent to her likely Facebook account.
