I think that one of Target's problems is that it does not carry much clothing in big and tall men's sizes. Some can be found on its website, but there is little to none available in stores. Target is also lacking in large and wide men's shoes.

Note to Target: Quit trying to jam all your generic items at your customers. You are confusing us: You want high end brand tie ins with Neiman M

How in the world can one of the largest and most visible retailers in the nation have such a horrible website? I swear it must be the worst, most annoying and user unfriendly one out there. Can someone in upper management at Target please get a clue and so something about it?

Note to Target continued: Your customer base is not the same people that are in WalMart or Aldi. Your pushing of your generic brand is annoying and opposite of your approach with tryinig to co-brand with high end label makers. The Market Pantry and Up brands are getting too much shelf space, and squeezing name brands that your customers know and trust out.

Target's clothing dept is depressing. Target should go after the Kohl's customer more

Everyone's earnings are hurting this quarter. Higher taxes, higher healthcare premiums, higher gas prices (yes I know oil is dropping but the gas prices are the same as last week). Get ready for a lot of blown earnings not just Target.

All i have been hearing from the kool-aid slingers is the "Recovery" is ongoing..And if 2014 doesn't work (as 2011 didn't work, nor 2012, and now 2013), there is always 2015... and then 2016... and then 2017... of course by then the world will be on QE 293834? From Goldman : However, the current slowdown in the economy is clearly worse than expected at this stage... Enjoy it folks more to come.
