Boycott Target Stores, Buy from SEARS!

It was last Christmas that Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front of their stores.
Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.

'Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our
spring recognition event. We received the following reply from the local TARGET management:
Veterans do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action groups,=gay & lesbian causes,
and education.'

So I'm thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and veterans in general, do not meet their donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.

As a follow-up, I e-mailed the TARGET U.S. Corporate Headquarters and their response was the same. That's their national policy. Then I looked into the company further. They will not allow the Marines to collect for 'Toys for Tots' at any of their stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment, they would not allow families of employees who were called up for active duty to continue their insurance coverage while they were on military service. Then as I dig further, TARGET is a French-owned corporation.
Now, I'm thinking again. If TARGET cannot support American Veterans, then why should my family and I support their
stores by spending our hard earned American dollars? And, have their profits sent to France?

Without the American Vets, where would France be today? They, most likely would be speaking German and trading in Deutsch EUROS.

Please send this on to everyone you know to let Target know we don't need them either!


FOLKS, this is 180* from SEARS. SEARS will do all that it can for the military, military families and veterans, even to the point of extending health care for the families when a military person is away.

Well, I said that it would be difficult for Sears to survive just with Craftsman Tools. Now they went and done it. They sold Craftsman Tools to Stanley Black & Decker. Sears & K-Mart won't last two years, there is nothing left that will make you want to go there.
