I figured this would be a fun little thread to see what ya'll thought seeing as we'll most likely have a new one of each by 2010.

I prefer target.. and if they are next to each other usually I'll go to Target, however I won't go out of my way for one. For me, walmart is on my way to/from work. Target is about 15 minutes out of my way, unless I'm going to the Mall of LA, or Millerville.

I prefer Target over Walmart, but Target is not very convenient for me. Target stores are better organized and cleaner.

I like Target better; and it's also more convenient. Wal-mart may have cheaper stuff and wider selection; but they don't have everything.

We do the big shopping at Wal-mart; but make many smaller trips to Target.

I'm obsessed with Target. It's so much cleaner, less crowded, and you never have parents in there with screaming kids. And as an artist I really admire their willingness to work with designers and create special lines of clothing and dinnerware/household items.

P.S. The best thing about Target is: When the lines at the registers are long, they pull people from throughout the store to come up front and open new registers. What a simple and great idea! Why haven't other places implemented this?

Target is cleaner, better designed, and less crowded.

The downside is that their prices are higher.

That said, I do often shop at Wal Mart. I admire the company greatly. You simply can't beat the prices and that's why I go. I was at the Wal Mart on college at least once a week when I was living in BR. I tried to make it to Target when I need items like cloths and electronics and in Dallas, it's either Target or IKEA, or an independent dealer for furniture.

I find that Target offers many of the electronic brands that Best Buy offers, but they are able to undercut them slightly on the price. Wal Mart has the best prices, but only with the low end brands.

I buy most of my cloths from Target (unless it's tee-shirts, shorts, socks, etc...I get that from Wal Mart) and my nicer cloths from Dillard's. If you are 6'4" tall like myself, you'll find that Wal Mart offers only the mainstream sizes...their stock is also usually a disaster and they are out of many items they do sell.

I've found that the arguments that Wal Mart puts the little guy out of business doesn't fly in all cases....most of the little grocery stores are doing fine since Wal Mart will never offer that kind of experience. Wal Mart puts the other big guys out of business...Winn Dixie, Albertsons, Kroger, etc....stores that offer all of the drawbacks of a Wal Mart supercenter but with none of the value.
