Target questions

I forgot to pay my Target bill in 2008.  Before I realized it 30/60/90 day lates reported in Jul/Aug/Sept.  The reason I overlooked them was the fact the balance was so low and I had just signed up for the paperless statements..  Even after the 3 months of not paying plus the interest the balance was only $17.  I obviously paid it off as soon as I realized the mistake. 


My question is has Target been good about removing lates?  If so anyone have any good contact info (addresses, emails, etc)? Should I just call them and ask them nicely? 


They also closed my account.  Do you think I have waited long enough that they might approve me again?  Not a huge deal but I shop there enough that the 5% off would be pretty sweet.
