Pron beat me to it. Buyblue.org is an excellent resource.

Bummer that Target is also a pretty Red company. Yes, that is a BAD thing IMO.

Well, I think WalMart was the first to jump on the dating scene aspect:

Walmart does allow the formation of union ... In China; not here.

Good point, Kap. When the butchers at one store tried to unionize, Wal*Mart responded by firing all their butchers nationwide and buying meat prepackaged.

And of all place, it's COMMUNIST China! What does that say about the power of our workers and their unions? A very sad state.

I once read somewhere that WalMart is the 8th or 10th largest trade partner with China.

A single company greater than many nations!

Target over WalMart.

If WalMart is what the shopping experience is evolving into; I'll stay home and buy online.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

I probably shop at Kmart a little bit more often than Target, and rarely if ever go to WalMart. I've noticed that the local Target now has a lot more stuff in the bargain bins at the entrance so I'm tempted to go back more often to see what's new. I picked up several $1 CDs of holiday music a few weeks ago, for instance. I'll probably shop at the Kmart less, and only pay cash - I used a credit card there for a once-in-a-blue-moon larger purchase recently and ended up with three other fraudulent charges on my credit card.

I would buy KMart as it WAS a hometown store; now it's owned by Sears. I prefer Target over Wal-Mart but no matter where I shop I look at the label to see where it's made. If it's China, I boycott it unless I have no choice. The PRC is hardly Communist any more. It's simply a capitalist country run by totalitarians. I will still boycott them until that changes.
