I especially like Target's home goods department with its Shabby Chic bedding and all.

ahh.....let's see...$21 BILLION in sales last year...$6 BILLION in gross profit and $1 BILLION in net profit. I don't think the company is in jepardy of going under.

I don't know where you are at, but they are busy where I am. I am guessing you are a guy. Ask some women if they like Target.

Nop. Their brands are really common but their prices don't reflect that. (Less) Products similar to Walmart's but higher prices. Not worth it.

And arguments like "I go to Target instead of Walmart because their stores are empty, I have coffee closer, and I don't see fat/ugly people"... please.

I do love Target. The stores are clean, well staffed, and have pretty cool products that are well designed. The WM in my city are dirty and not at all welcoming. I think it comes down to style. Target has it and WM doesn't.

I stopped in at Target recently to buy groceries; I was amazed that their prices are not that cost effective, plus their supply is very limited and not that diversified.

And as previously mentioned, the times I have shopped in Target there's just a handful of customers; which does make it nice as far as not being crowded.

Target is the only retail store I will ever shop in. It's so great and all the other retail stores are a nightmare. Now I want a hot pretzel.

I like the general "vibe" of the Target near me. Its clean, bright, and I enjoy shopping there.

As for the groceries, I couldn't do all my shopping there because there isn't a wide enough selection, but when I do go, I always make one trip through the grocery section and usually find some great deals.

I take full advantage of the 5% off using their RedCard.. since their prices are already comparable to Walmart and quality is a little higher, Target is my "to go" place to buy something if I can't find it on sale elsewhere.

It's the popcorn & diet coke special for me. It's better than most movies !!
