I think stop shopping at a place just because you don't agree with something they sell or are doing is a bit extreme.

What would you ladies do if EVERYONE did what Target is doing? Then where would you shop? To be honest, you WOULDN'T be shopping anywhere, would you? How would you even survive?
K-Mart sells those too.

I just use discretion when choosing to support businesses that are in direct violation of certain beliefs that I hold. The lifestyle that the shirts support has caused irreparable harm and despair to my family. I probably won't stop shopping at Target altogether, but I will stop until the shirts are removed or are out of stock for good.

I don't understand how anyone could be apprehensive about self-checkouts. Instead of standing in a line, having yet another stranger handle your items, you can quickly swipe them through, swipe your card, get your receipt and go. The Wal-Marts that have self-checkouts are great because not many people use them.

We definitely agree here. Maybe it is an effort to keep labor costs down. Who knows?

I have noticed that they're more common in some areas than others. I think higher crime areas tend to have fewer of these scanners, which would definitely explain why Chicago is lacking.

I LOVE Target & I'm about to live across the street from a nice one in my city. I've always loved Target...can't stand Walmart & go there as little as possible.

Walmart always has this hectic feeling. Target is nice to stroll around & is nice, calm & more upscale. Believe it or not, I do see a different element of people shopping at each of the two stores. Honestly, there's more unkempt, sloppy-looking, maybe ghetto people shopping at Walmart. I'm not ashamed to shop at or be seen in Walmart. I'm just not thrilled with the ambience of the store.

Love Target for everything except the clothes. Hate the "women's" clothes. Their t-shirts are thin and always have stupid sayings or graphics on them. You have either the front of the clothing section for juniors (more stupid sayings or graphics) and the end where it is for the more mature woman. Very little, IMHO, for the middle.

I do buy my son's jeans there occasionally, and a few workout pants for me, but for clothes, that is all I buy at Target

Last time I went to Target, I walked through the whole store and could find nothing to wear that I would be caught dead in. I sometimes go there for coffee and we have tried their food but found it lacking too. I consider it a teenybopper place. Guess they are catering to the age that spends most of the money.

Oh, and I asked where their dresses were and they didn't have any. No dresses. None!

When I am looking for clothes for myself, I go to Belk's.

I shop at both. The two stores that I go to are in the same shopping center, and I see the same people at both stores.

I don't buy clothes from either one of them, though.

Always shop at Target, good value and price, I have had no problems with Target at all. If I had to take an item back, I have the receipt and had no questions/problems.
