    Walmart and Target: A tale of two discount chains - CBS News

    Real median household income in the United States in 2011 was $50,054.

    In 2011, the median earnings of women who worked full time, year-round ($37,118) was 77 percent of that for men working full time, year-round ($48,202) ? not statistically different from the 2010 ratio.

    Just curious but... how in the hell would walmart know what it's customers make per year?

    Wal-Mart Sales are waaaay down, the 4th quarter GDP sucked like a Hoover, consumer confidence is scraping along the bottom. Looks like harbingers of hard times soon to come.

    Obama aimed at the rich and hit the lower middle class with his tax policy.

    Let this be a lesson. When Obama talks about taxing the rich he means YOU Mr. Wal-Mart shopper.

    Re: Walmart memo details monthly sales "disaster"

    I shop anywhere I can save a buck or two. I hate Walmart, but because OMG THEY DESTROYED SMALL BUSINESS. I hate Walmart because the stores are usually dirty and unkempt, the employees, generally, are rude, the aisles are extremely narrow and filled with rude people who'd rather knock you over with a shopping cart filled with Twinkies than to actually say "excuse me." That's why I hate Walmart. That being said, sometimes they are a necessary evil.

    I prefer paying more, to shop at Target. The aisles are bigger, the clerks dont look at you like you've stolen something if you need to return it, and the 5% redcard discount makes up for the higher price.

    I also shop at Dollar General and Family Dollar. Anywhere I can save a dollar, I will. Besides, I have a Family Dollar and a Dollar General within 4 minutes of me. I prefer Family Dollar because they are cleaner and more well-lit, but the Dollar General is cheaper. It's about a 20 minute drive to Walmart and Target. For quick things like toilet paper, paper towels and paper plates, I'll stick with Family Dollar. Same price, less of a drive.

    I refuse to shop at Target. Used to work there (in between "real" jobs, after a layoff) and I know how that place works. As bad as everyone says Wal-Mart is, Target is worse. They just do a better job at keeping a low profile.

    Target OR Nordstrom?!

    The Target stores here in Kansas and Missouri (KC Metro) are only about a half step above Walmart. Wait until they come up with a "people of Target".
