its interesting reading this because its so different I guess in the mostly rural or suburban areas. in this huge basically one large city that is the area from Boston to Richmond it's sooo different for the most part

What does that mean exactly? There are a lot of Targets in the Boston area (not many Walmarts, though).

What time of the day do you shop at Target? If I go to the Target near my house on the weekday at 9:30 in the morning, the place is dead. Go to the same Target on the weekends, and the place is steadily busy.

Your statement of "the store is pretty empty" remind me of a time I worked for a major supermarket in my area. The supermarket is in a suburban/exurban area and there was times I would get the early 6 am weekday shift. At time there would be customers would come up to me and say "how dead this place is" or "where are the customers?" Do you expect the place to be busy on a early Wednesday morning while majority of our customers are probably at work?

Anyway I do shop at Target for certain items.

Funny you should ask.....

I went to Target last night for the first time in ~ 3 years. I find the stores clean and pleasant, but the prices too high! Even my dd noticed it---the prices! Ok, I found a few sale items, but in general, I "prefer' Walmart because its cheaper. However, I refuse to use the bathrooms at Walmart yeech!
