30+ years of loving Target is not easily undone. Still loveTarget.

Target has been a great "corporate citizen", is a quality Brand and recovered as best they could in the breach. I am glad that most people realize this. The liberal extremists can whine and threaten all they want.

Did not poll me...good-bye! You do not understand customer service...AND according to the article this week, when the guy who discovered the breach tried to reach exec headquarters...took just a bit of time to get back to him. NO trust!

I quit buying from Target when they started supporting some of the biggest homophobes from the republican party.

35% of Minnesotans can't even name the Vice President of the United States. Why would anyone think in our age of low information Americans, they have a clue what problems Target had?

Diminished to no shopping for 16% of Target's customers does not bode well for Target given the narrowness of margins and its fixed costs. It has considerable work to do--and undo--especially in a not particularly robust retail environment. If in the end it should turn out that Target's IT efforts were less than robust--oh boy!

I have a feeling there are a lot of closet Target shoppers out there. Actually stop shopping there? Then you are to blame for the losses in donations they make to the community.

I'll choose Target over Walmart any day. Walmart is not immune to a credit card breach.

When it comes to being a cheerleader for corporate Minnesota, no one does it better than the Strib. In any other world an 18% drop in business would be a sign of a disaster.

Not company is immune to a credit breach. We can all be grateful it doesn't happen more often.
