Target failed big time in Canada, filing for bankruptcy after losing 1.8 billion dollars :eek:

I heard about that. From what I read, they tried to open their stores in buildings that were something else before. Out here all the Targets were built from scratch.

Really simple: Target opened a few dozen stores in Canada, but couldn't get their supply chain act together, so they failed miserably and lost about $1 billion.

There is no Target within 300 miles of me. Meanwhile, there are about 15 Wal-Marts within 300 miles.

Meijer is practically next door, target closed down, wal mart sometimes has different stuff than meijer, but usually amazon is just as good.

Target is less crowded and Walmart is a bit less expensive.

You never know what you will see at Walmart. :p

Walmart all the way. Good prices and you're likely to get entertained by the crazies.


I got to target about once every 2 months.

Neither.....I do not feel safe at Target and do not agree with what they stand for and Walmart does not treat their employees well. I only go there if I can't find what I need at my usual stop

Wal-Mart for basic stuff - deoderant, toilet paper, a new broom, whatever.

A real grocery store for food.

(Assorted places online) for stuff I really depend on - shoes, computers, a new phone, earbuds, etc.

No Target close to us. Guess nobody hit the Target.

What's your usual stop? And why dont u feel safe at target?

Out here, target is like where all the hipsters with lots of disposable income shop and walmart is where sometimes you see scary people shop. I don't even like being in the walmart parking lot because there are sometimes beggars hanging out there and they will come up to you as you're walking to your car.

Walmart, I love it! :p

I like Target too...but Walmart is way better. I can get anything I need at Walmart. At Target, I feel like there is less variety.

Target is nicer, Walmart is cheaper. Target is cleaner, Walmart has more variety. But I like thrift stores the best! You can get designer clothing & shoes, and high end kitchenware & home products for cheap.

Looks like they're just in the midwest, think of a smaller version of wal-mart with a fairly good grocery section and you're probably pretty close.
