Target Stores
Amazing Issue with Target Stores
If they have a good sale in their ads, take the ad to Walmart, where
they will meet the price.............
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 to have their profits sent to France. Without the
American Vets, where would France be today?"

Feel free to pass this along to whomever you want.

Sincerely,

Please send this on to everyone you know to let Target know how
AMERICAN'S feel about their non-support of America and
our support of them.
Isn't it amazing how people can forget when we support them.

This has been debunked a dozen times.
