I didn't know target was a place people shopped for clothing. The Target in my town is about 90% or more household goods, with only a small clothing section. More like a small corner. TJ Maxx is where the locals seem to go for cute, inexpensive clothing.

I love Target, too. I had to buy a new purse in an emergency, so my first go-to place to buy a cute purse at low cost was Target. To replace my prior Target purse (that I got lots of compliments on). I got a cute low cost purse that I love.

I got quite a few 100% cotton cardigans for work in gorgeous colors. I have a lot of Merona clothing items...jeans, tops.

Mix Target items with pricier items, and the whole outfit will look high end. As nice as anything I could've gotten at Macy's only lower cost.

Target also has a great pet food & treat section. A much larger selection than any other discount place, at low cost.

I got my favorite casual jacket at Target a few years ago. A barn coat...darkish green w/navy cord collar and turned up cuffs. Awesome jacket at low cost.

I get household items, though, at WalMart. Cleaners, doodads, some groceries, etc. Bigger selection at better prices. Target's food section is more of a convenience, rather than a full stop grocery place.

But I've saved a ton of money over the years by buying clothing and accessories at Target, rather than at Macy's and other department stores. WalMart doesn't compete with this standard. It's not intended to. No one would guess I bought that clothing at Target.

Seriously?

Here, they are at least half attire and shoes and accessories. At least. This is true of every one I've ever been in.

Walmart isn't an option for me. I'd pass 4 targets by the time I drove the 12-30 miles to Walmart! And I am not exaggerating. We don't have many Walmarts in the Bay Area. And definitely not. Y part. I went to Walmart this weekend while visiting my parents in a lower code more rural/suburban part of the state. I was amazed at the crazy packaged foods.

Clothes at Walmart are ugly! I have only gotten a few things Walmart over the years. They didn't last and were much lower quality than the Target equivalent she. When I lived near a Walmart I'd try to get some basic tees and tanks; they lost shape instantly!

Their children's clothing is too tempting for me.

Target's clothing, housewares, cleanliness everything is a lot better than Walmart.

I can't stand it when my husband drags me to a Walmart. At least at Target I don't have to stop in front of the store to have my receipt checked like a criminal. If you need to buy razors, some feminine products you have to call someone to unlock a cabinet. Makeup and certain beauty products have to purchased in that area. Oh and the last time we went to a Walmart they asked for both of our I.d.'s. for a bottle of alcohol. We're almost 40 and while I look good for my age you wouldn't mistake me for being under 21 and my husband looks older than 40. What if I didn't have my purse? If it was just me and my 11 year old would they ask her for I.D. which she doesn't have and then tell me I couldn't purchase alcohol? Walmart is beyond ridiculous anymore.
