The weird thing is, I go to the Target that's basically right across the street all the time and it's fine.
Yeah that Walmart is pretty sketchy. I used to go there only to get dog food, b/c it was cheaper there. But ever since I had to change my dog's food for medical reasons, I don't go there anymore.

I like the Target a lot, it is also very close to my house.

It's no shocker that your local Walmart attracts a lot of undesirables, because they intentionally try to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Target is like a high end Walmart, people actually have expectations when they go in there, like a clean store, helpful customer service, etc. The only thing they don't expect to find in Target is lower prices than Walmart.

My local Walmart/Target are the same way, I still shop at Walmart moreso than Target but that's because my income level dictates where I shop. I did work at Target for 10 months a couple years ago so I'm familiar with the expectations they have there.

My local Kmart is disgusting. The store is always dirty and understaffed, and the prices are just as high as Target's. It's like combining the worst of Target and Walmart into one big crappy retail store. Hence why I never shop there.

I don't understand? Could you repeat yourself, about 26-ish times? Thanks.

i dont know if that is they're specific marketing strategy, appealing to society's undesirables. They wouldnt be in business long.

I didn't mean it like that, I meant like their main selling point is low prices so as to attract more business. That's not Target's MO.

LOL @ "undesirables." Walmart's target market is not homeless people. It would be if they had money though.

I would be using Amazon more often if they used PayPal, but as I understand it PayPal is owned by E-Bay and with E-Bay as one their main competitors, well safe to say it's obvious to see why they don't accept it.

Personally I'm just more comfortable going through PayPal to complete online transactions, especially in regards to Netflix, Hulu, E-Bay, etc.

I LOVE me some Paypal. Just makes it so convenient to not have to remember my credit card every time I want to make a purchase.
