Free delivery.

    But there are many more workers now than before they raised wages and benefits. The store looks much better,too. With Kroger,Meijer and Aldies in the area they have to keep up. Both of those stores have Unions and very happy employees. Ladies is discount, but they pay well.
    I do the same sometimes. I live 4 minutes from a Super Target that is usually very busy with long lines. If I just have a few items I go through the new self-check out (just started about 3 months ago). I sometimes also just buy straight from their website.

    There is a big signs outside their door that they are hiring.

    Good company to work for.

    I've worked there about three times I think and they always pay a good price, offer benefits and overtime.

    I have no idea why liberals hate them.
    Thanks from Southern Dad

    I worked for target also.

    They start you out way less than Walmart.

    The second time I went to get a part time job there I put Walmart on my resume and they wouldn't even interview me.

    I won't shop at target anymore.
    Thanks from Southern Dad

    The Target close to me closed. The store was new,bright and nice to shop in. The only one now is on the other side of Dayton,dingy. I do order online and pick up, but not often.

    I can even find Levi's for the men at Krogers. Meijer has the same merchandise I used to buy at Department stores.

    All are hiring.they have Unions,too. Walmart had no choice, now that the economy is good.

    The times,they are a changing once again.

    Good job by Walmart.

    This with their 4 dollar prescription should help to alleviate some of the liberal hate to them.

    They've had the $4 prescription plan for a long time now. Hasn't helped how the liberals feel. Walmart increased their starting pay to 30% over minimum wage, the left still hates them. Walmart committed to hiring any honorably discharged veteran that applied. Still no love from the left. The hate Walmart because it is an example of an American success story. The left believes that no one has a right to be that successful.

    I wouldn't know how many cashiers they have, don't shop there. Only losers shop there.

    I see. You feel that you are too good to shop at somewhere like Walmart that caters to the poor, takes food stamps, and such? Yes, the great unwashed masses. The minorities, those downtrodden. I can understand how you feel better than Walmart shoppers. Are you a Whole Foods type of shopper? Or maybe a Target? Yes, I will admit those stores are nicer, cleaner, and cater to a more upscale clientele. We'd hate to have you actually walking around with Walmart shoppers one of them might look at you wrong, hurt your feelings, or God forbid bump into you. Some people are too good to shop at Walmart.

    I agree with you.

    Walmart is also one of the few companies that will let their workers work 40 hour weeks after Obamacare passed.

    I don't "hate" them - it's just most of their stores are overcrowd with narrow aisles that you have a hard time getting by with your cart. Target has nice big aisles and let's face it, no tweakers shopping there.

    And contrary to your lies again...I know 4 people who work at Target and love it there. They are treated very well.

    I just feel bad for the Wal Mart employees that Southern Dad keeps referring to as "losers".
