The Target boycott is costing more than anyone expected
« on: August 27, 2016, 12:23:19 PM »
Target is no Chick-fil-A....   :lol:


snip~
Cathy Smith, the company's chief financial officer, added: "Traffic performance showed a meaningful change from prior trend. I want to pause and make it clear that we are not satisfied with our second-quarter traffic and sales performance."

In the past, even the most widespread calls for company boycotts have tended to blow over within a matter of weeks to months.

I am not a shopper, but I will not shop at Target and will encourage my wife not to also.

My wife don't like shopping, can you imagine that.   :lol:

I do 99% of the shopping and Target is on my do not shop list.  When I go into the big cities, Richland or Yakima Washington all I see in there parking lot now are about 10 cars, 5 cars must be from the people working there.  They always have parking for about 50 cars.  This is back to school shopping time with only 5 cars.

I didn't shop target before the boycott. Prices were too high, limited supplies and I couldn't find what I wanted.  :thumbdown:

I asked Toy to avoid Target years ago, but when it comes to sales, she's all woman, but all that changed when Target pulled the tranny love bull shit.
She hasn't been back and promised to never return until they apologize to thinking Americans and completely reverse their stance in promoting deviancy.

Mothers and children, that's that human nature thing libs just don't get, you don't fuck with mama bear's cubs, ever.

Wow.  Good to hear.

I didn't intend to join an actual boycott.  But when they announced that they were letting perverted men go in the girls' bathroom, I decided I just couldn't shop there.  I don't have any daughters, but I feel very sorry for families that do.

But I miss shopping there.  I've recently been thinking of writing to Target to apply gentle pressure to get them to wake up from the most monumentally stupid corporate decision ever.

Don't waste your time. The CEO is a liberal. The stockholders will take care of him.
