Boycott: Target Begs Shoppers Offended by Bathroom Policy to Return

Since Target decided to go full retard with their bathroom policy in order to pander to the LGBT crowd, I’ve not set foot in one of their stores.

Apparently, I’m not the only one. Boycotts work.

Target is launching a first-of-its-kind one-day sale to try and boost back-to-school shopper traffic amid a boycott over its bathroom policy. The retailer is offering a 10% discount on everything in its stores and online on Sunday. Target is calling the event #TargetRunDay.

It marks the first time Target has ever offered a 10% discount both in stores and on its website. The sale comes after Target last week reported its first quarterly traffic decline in more than two years.

This is what happens when you blindly hop on the social-justice bandwagon without consulting your customers, understanding their mores, or giving a damn about what they think. Serves Target right. Drive by any Target store since the “transgender” policy went into effect and witness an ocean of empty spaces in their parking lots.

Target’s same-store transactions, which is how traffic is measured, fell 2.2% in the second quarter. Overall, sales fell 7.2% to $16.2 billion. “In the second quarter, our No. 1 challenge was traffic, which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said last week on a call with analysts.

Shopper traffic is falling amid a boycott over Target’s new policy, announced earlier this year, that welcomes customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matches their gender identity. The announcement triggered an immediate backlash. Critics said the policy opened the door for sexual predators to victimize women and children inside the retailer’s bathrooms, and more than 1.4 million people signed a pledge to stop shopping at Target unless it reversed the policy.

  1. Muslims are they that are a offended by the nude form not wanting the sexes to mix. The people that are complaining might as well be cannibalistic Muslims. People get used to being nude around another sex a lot easier than they think.

  2. Target installing more “family” single occupancy bathrooms isn’t changing my mind. Companies turning their backs on customers who made them successful must pay for it.

  3. Wulife, that’s why I walked on NASCAR
    Never joined the anti target deal. Never shopped there being a heterosexual man and all so it’s not like I could stop shopping some place i’ve never stepped into
