Last time I shopped at target was about 8 years ago, and I think somehow they managed to leak my CC info as well. And I used cash.

I suspect relatively few people actively hate and avoid the store.

I don't have any hate for them at all. Still last time I was there, was 8 years ago. I just don't see how they fit in anywhere on my buying list. Grocery? I don't think they even carry any. For everything else, there is Amazon and Costco for me. What do people exactly buy from Target?


Some groceries; and then stuff.  Lots of stuff.  A cornucopia of stuff, all in one place.  In fact, you can probably find just about any kind of stuff you might be looking for there.  Things too.  Lots of things.  Things for the home, things for the car, things for the kids.  You can walk in there and can easily come out with things and stuff.  I think some areas even have ordinances that compel anyone walking into a Target to spend $50.

/Don't underestimate America's appetite for stuff.  and things.

I just go for the ambiance.

The one in our town had a small lunch counter that served a mean microwave ham and cheese.



I'll say. The last one I ordered chased me down to men's clothing with a meat cleaver, before I hit it  with a clothes rack right between the rye.

Hehehe, rubes.  Sooner or later those idiots will learn to use the internet and get their identities stolen like normal people.

As someone who just got his B.S. in IT/IS and who lives an hour south of the Target corporate office I eagerly await the job openings.

In my area, it's MILF's loading up carts with stuff that they could easily get cheaper somewhere else, but don't really care.
Personally, I hate Target. I never find what I'm looking for half the time, and anything electric/electronic I have bought from them ends up breaking a few months later. The clothing prices are ridiculous. $20 for a basic polo shirt? Come on! I had a $25 gift card so I did stop in one the other day, but couldn't find the majority of things I had on my list. I mainly used it on food (for whatever reason they turned 1/4 of the store into a mini grocery store) and cleaning supplies (and paying the balance in cash of course). Believe it or not, I wish they never closed the Kmart in my town.

And upskirt shots.

The data thieves got millions of upskirt shots of customers using their credit and debit cards with PIN.
