Angelina Jolie with her children

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went shopping for budget buys

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt surprised shoppers this festive season as they stepped out onto the high street on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia to do some last minute Christmas shopping.

The couple, along with their six children, eschewed designers stores and headed to budget retailer Target to stock up on gifts and goodies.

‘They made sure no one was around to blow their cover,’ a Target employee told the Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper. ‘The store manager waited until everyone had gone home and opened it up secretly for them at 7:30pm on Sunday.

‘She said they shopped for around an hour and a half to buy presents for their children and friends. Who would have thought people like them would do their shopping in Target?’

Stuart Machin, Target’s Chief executive, also confirmed the rumours on Twitter: ‘Team at our Target Robina store are thrilled that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their children shopped at Target today.’

Even though the movie star couple are worth an estimated $300million, they obviously can't resist a bargain.
