thomps: walmart's supply chain management is just too strong.
Hot Carl To Go: The crappy products I have bought at Target seem to be of a slightly less-crappy quality than the crappy products I have bought at Wal-Mart. Bookshelves come to mind as a good example.
seniorgato: Bizarrely, I've had really crappy luck with Target. I've actually got better quality from Walmart.
dittybopper: Ironically, you can buy targets at Wal*Mart, but you can't buy targets at Target./False advertising.
Cheesus: Almost everywhere I've lived, Walmart is closer and open 24 hours. Produce/meat/etc. I'll go to a grocery store for, but I'll usually get a bulk of my items at Walmart.
ontariolightning: First ever Target will be opening soon in Canada. They bought out all the Zellers.
suziequzie: ontariolightning: First ever Target will be opening soon in Canada. They bought out all the Zellers.Yep - I wonder what it's going to be like. If it's less crowded/crazy than the Walmart that's 5 minutes away from it, I'll use Target./Walmart makes me feel punchy//and stabby
MBZ321: I shop at Target and Walmart almost equally (not very often..maybe once every 2 months if that). No matter what I buy that is electronic/electric/uses batteries from Target, it ALWAYS breaks. A Philips VCR lasted about a month before it crapped out. I bought a digital timer that was defective right in the package, but according to the Amazon reviews, they were made like this (wouldn't hold the program!). Then had a Remington beard trimmer that was so awful, it basically broke in half when I first used it. Walmart...meh....I've never had to return any defective/shoddy product there. Target does have some good stuff (the loss leader bookshelves are actually made in the U.S.A. and are quite sturdy), but their prices on health and beauty-type shiat and general household merchandise is outrageous. I can buy cheaper non-food items at the grocery store.\Has downgraded to Kmart (closer to my house) and Family Dollar for "in-between" purchases\Don't have to get all dressed up
invictus2: dittybopper: Ironically, you can buy targets at Wal*Mart, but you can't buy targets at Target./False advertising.I know it's like going to a mom and pop pottery barn and trying to buy pot.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 450x401]
Geotpf: dittybopper: Ironically, you can buy targets at Wal*Mart, but you can't buy targets at Target./False advertising.But you can't buy walls at either of them.
angry_scientist: dittybopper: Ironically, you can buy targets at Wal*Mart, but you can't buy targets at Target./False advertising.True, getting a few boxes of subsonic .22 with groceries? Priceless.
