KARE-TV reports the Minneapolis-based retailer recently released an updated version of its app that labels whether the price next to a product is "online" or "in-store."

The app's location-tracking function lets users find nearby stores or where specific items are located. But it also appeared to trigger price changes as users entered Target parking lots.

Target said in a statement that the updates to the app make it easier for customers to understand pricing policy. The statement also said every page of the updated app featuring a product will link directly to the company's policy of matching competitor prices.
