we shop there for household goods, toys, and pharmacy, not the clothes.

I stopped shopping there about a week ago after hearing that they were selling TShirts with slogans promoting same-sex marriage or relationships.

Us target lovers do not mind one bit that you are no longer around.

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.
I'm a woman and I don't shop at Target. If they have something I need and nobody else in town has it I might buy it there though, if the price was right, otherwise I'll buy online.

There are a lot of us, though. I'm sure it matters quite a bit to Target, regardless of what some of their customers might think.

I shop at Target. Their stores are cleaner, more organized than the alternatives in my area (Walmart) and the people are always much more pleasant.

I'd rather have my head run over than shop at Walmart.

There was a recent study in which the same items were bought at Target, Wal-Mart, and K-Mart. When the researchers compared the prices of the like items, they found that in MOST cases you can get what you need cheaper at Target.

That said, I do MOST of my shopping at Target and have actually done my own comparing between the 3 giants. In having done my own comparing, I've found that study to be spot on. Most things I buy at Target are indeed cheaper.

I feel when I buy at Target, I get more for my dollar.

Low prices aside, another thing I like about shopping at Target is how they end up putting food on on clearance whereas Wal-Mart doesn't usually do that.

That said, you simply CAN'T beat Target. (I know there's people out there who disagree with me and say Wal-Mart is better, but I know it's not.)

You heard, but didn't verify?

Just imagine the day ALL retailers do this. Guess you won't be shopping anywhere, will you?
