People May Be Unhappy With
Target, and It´s Starting to Show

The Street, by Brian Sozzi

Target has long been loved by people because it´s a fun place to shop. At least it used to be a fun place to shop. Customer satisfaction with the total shopping experience at Target has declined for a fourth consecutive period, according to a new survey of 2,500 people done by investment bank Cowen. Declines in customer satisfaction were seen across the board, led by drops in customer service, merchandise selection and product quality. Overall, Cowen says customer satisfaction at Target plunged 383 basis points to 66.7%. It appears unhappy Target shoppers could be taking their business elsewhere. On Wednesday,

4 straight quarters of declining sales. No mention of the policy to let creepy men hang out in the ladies´ restroom.

FTA:""Our view is that the company may need to focus on optimizing customer satisfaction."

You mean focusing on 0.0000004 of the population is NOT a credible market strategy?

That´s Unpossible!!!!!

(marketing tip for the Exec floor.....gay dudes shop in boutiques, lesbians shop in Walmart or Duluth Trading)

We have three Target stores near us. One is my old favorite because it’s been there a long time and the people who work there are so nice. Another is also good because it is newer and more attractive.

I don’t agree with some of their policies, but I very much like shopping there when I need certain things. In all these years, I have never seen their restrooms. Couldn’t find them without asking.

I stopped entering the stores when they stopped allowing the bell ringers. It really wasn´t a big deal for them to be there but it was a big deal to eliminate them. Sam´s Club and Walmart still allow them.

The reporter cannot be this stupid, he must be colluding with the American left in covering up the true story and it´s consequences, i.e. Target´s extremely silly pandering to the LBQT etc.etc.etc. issue of the moment, and the distaste many Americans felt for Target as a result. Or the reporter lives in a liberal bubble where so many other reporters reside.

btw, Target has a long history of political activism. Apparently, 3 decades ago they permitted "environmentalists" to sit outside their stores with sweet pictures of animals collecting the money which helped to seed the radical environmental movement. Later, Target banned the word Christmas or the playing of Christmas music during the Christmas season, which resulted in so much negative push back from customers that the store reversed its policy. I go out of my way to never shop Target.

All that glitters isn´t necessarily gold. I boycotted Target a long time after they started all that PC nonsense. And yes, Sams Club and Walmart may allow bell ringers but allow me to share a quick anecdotal story: Just the other day I was in Walmart with my newspaper ad in hand to request price matching on a few items. It was pointed out to me that Walmart will NO LONGER price match local competitors. I was stunned and of course did not purchase the items. I headed over to Target to test their price match policy. NO PROBLEM they said to me. They price matched the items and saved me from having to go out of my way to buy the items from the store selling the sale items.
Regarding the women´s bathroom issue - Target does have UNISEX/FAMILY bathrooms posted which a single, sex-confused individual can use. Walmart has embarked upon a number of small, irritating policies and changes that finally came to a head the other day with this "no price match" policy. It all added up to something as significant as PC nonsense practiced at Target. At this point and for most things, Walmart is NO longer my number one go-to place.

To remedy the problem of men who feel unsafe sharing restrooms with other men, Target rushed to provide their male customers with a "safe space" otherwise known as the ladies room.

Accommodating men at the expense of their female customers was a choice Target proudly made.

It´s paying a price for expecting female customers go go along with their PC culture.

Target is PC driven, liberal, political active store front that has finally suffered from it´s stances and didn´t pay attention to who shops and spends money, conservatives.
The non-Christmas stance ended my shopping in Target but the confused gender men in women restrooms took the cake. Now Target has reaped their rewards. I haven´t been in Target in two years and last week was looking for a specific piece of camping equipment. I walked in and the place was a total waste land void of customers or people checking out. I didn´t see what I was shopping for so I left. I hope the entire LGBTQ establishment can keep them afloat because us ´deplorables´ sure won´t.

The banning of Santa Claus, the ´No Firearms´ allowed sign and finally letting gays, trans and other animals use whatever bathroom they want . It was at least a decade ago that the Santa thing did it for me. Plus, the housekeeping ,décor and inventory is needed some work.
What do you expect from a store that born and raised in liberal Minnopoless.?

The smartest entities keep their noses out of the political arena. Why would you deliberately irritate half of your customers, or in some cases, all of your customers to make a pulpit statement? Besides dropping Target, Disney and others over their cave-in to the confused sexuality crowd, I no longer look at GM cars, gave up Ben & Jerry´s long ago, which, from a scan of their meager presence on ice cream shelves, seems to have been dropped by many others. I avoid ALL new movies, awards shows and TV shows because you can´t find one without a gay, lefty, token black or activist, avoid all alphabet news programs and am slowly weaning myself from Fox. I will never buy another VW because of their hypocritical emission cheating scam. NFL, NBA, MLB, all gone.

I still patronize Walmart because the average bang for the buck is still there, they don´t play politics and they strongly oppose labor unions. Life is much simpler.

I don´t know about most folks, but at our house I do 90% of the shopping. Naturally, when Target decided to allow men into the Restroom I usually visited when shopping there, I didn´t feel safe. Now, I realize the men who now were using said Restroom now DID feel safe, so I hope there are enough of them coming to Target to make up for me and thousands of other women who no longer care to darken Target´s Doors! I know my husband never went to Target, so I´m wondering if the Trannies shop as men or women? If they´re still shopping as men, well, Target you just made a huge error in judgement!

I used to order "everyday essentials" from Target, free shipping when we used their charge card but after they embraced the liberal/gay agenda, I switched to Walmart.

My other issue with Target is their pricing at our local mini-Target (that´s not the term they use but that´s what the store is). Everything from toothpaste to laundry detergent to milk cost more at the mini-Target than at the full size stores.

I think it´s probably 10 years or so since we´ve been in a Target. And yes, it all started with the Salvation Army bell ringers. Nothing they have done since has changed our outlook. I don´t want social justice or any of its sad sisters when I shop.

Of course if I were being completely honest with myself I would also be eliminating Amazon...

I really do not remember the last time I entered a Target Store. Perhaps about 6 years ago. They banned the Salvation Army bell ringers. I blew up, first at the store manager. then wife and I had a strong discussion about Target. She loved the dang place. Got ehr Rx there and always bought gobs every time we had to pick up the meds. That was the end for me. Finally, wife also agreed and switched to another Pharm. We have not entered a Target since and over the years, Target kept announcing this or that lib-tarded policy. The Bathroom-gate made me laugh becasue only a few years after that, that Target was boarded up and have never re-opened as anything. Just a big old derelict vacant building. We consider it a monument to liberal activists everywhere.

Wife agreed, we made the right decision way back. That and our decision to boycott Sears.

Also, we bad- mouth Target often. She tends to be quite vicious when she gets on board a cause to support traditional American life. Can you imagine?

Target is apparently owned by a very liberal family that decided the place for Target was smack dab in the middle of politically correct politics. The perception that they were making it possible for creepy men to hang out in the ladies restrooms no doubt did them in. That should be a signal to other such entities to keep an apolitical public posture or risk loosing a good percentage of their customers.

Based on the reality and effectiveness of determined consumers to avoid Target due to its political correctness policies, most especially the restroom debacle, the same collective determination to not tune in to any of the evening national cable/television news broadcasts may be a way of letting the shameful mainstream media know that Conservatives have had enough of their dishonest, malicious, fake news and will seek real news, real facts, elsewhere from trustworthy sources.

Before the bathroom debacle, before denying the bell ringers, I left Target for good once I learned that they are major supporters of the so-called ´Family Equality Council´. This LGBTQ organization is seeking the destruction of faith based adoption agencies because they ´discriminate´ by requiring a family to consist of a male and a female set of parents. They claim they "are dedicated to creating a world where all loving families are recognized, respected, protected, and celebrated."

Target sells rainbow apparel that supports them and the FEC website proudly displays Target as a major donor (alongside HBO, Tylenol, Capital One and others). I won´t support Target because they don´t represent the values I cherish.

I love shopping Target and shop there over Walmart whenever possible. They have their problems, but so does Walmart. Target has an excellent pick up in store service that runs circles around Walmart. It´s ready on time, there are no lost packages or not in stock items, if Target says an item is in stock it´s IN STOCK, unlike Walmart. I hope they can pull out of this and continue to grow and thrive because the thought of having to shop again at Walmart gives me the chills...it´s THAT bad where we live.

It´s not just men in the ladies room, but they have unisex dressing rooms. What really ticked me off was two years ago they stopped playing music overhead, especially Christmas music. When I contacted their home office I was told it was to ´provide a pleasant shopping experience´ Translation: my closest Target is full of Muzlims.

While I was not a fan of Target, there were several things I bought there that were either less expensive or seasonal. But, I can do without. Can they do without US?

The sun has set on students’ request to change the date of their prom.

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie." But Clinton is doing more than just talking about Trump as a once

Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure.
