Target: $.96 per share.  Actual $.95 per share.

Big whoop.  They still made profit.

Yes, but now they have an excuse to cut hours for the people that actually do productive things for the company - their store employees.

You might be thinking of Wal-Mart. Generally speaking, Target is a pretty good example of how to run a store offering affordable, basic products (apart from that whole unionization thing). The stores are clean, the staff are friendly, and they don't grind their suppliers into the ground in search of every last fraction of a penny of profit.

They also do some socially responsible things that aren't always well publicized. For example, clothes that have gone through the markdown/clearance cycle without selling don't get trashed, they get donated to Goodwill.

The one near me has a shiatty selection. I stopped going because just over half the time I had to go to walmart afterward to get what I wanted. Their outdoor dept blows.
