Which store do you prefer to shop in?

Target or Walmart?

Why?

definitely target! Our wal-mart is absolutely horrible! The majority of the time they only have 3 or 4 registers open and we end standing in line for what seems like FOREVER plus our target is much cleaner!

Target!!!! It has a nicer selection, they have Starbucks , it is always clean, and I just like their quality of product better.
BUT Wal-Mart does have the better prices!

I prefer Target for the reasons mentioned above (except the check out situation-target is worse that our walmart) but i started shopping walmart and we save MUCH more money a month on groceries. there are still a few things i only get at target.

Walmart near me is small... I go to Walmart for necessities, clothes and food...
Target.. I shop there for shoes, clothes (on sale or clearance), and some stuff. but their lines are horribly long so i end up going to walmart a lot.

back home in indiana.. i go to both for a lot things cuz it's super center target and wlamart... not here

I go to Target because we're not close to a Wal-Mart.

Everybody's talking about WM for groceries -- is it cheaper there than a grocery store? We always go to Ralph's for our groceries.

I love Target for clothes, shoes, housewares, Archer Food products, and I love looking at their baby stuff selection.

Grocery shopping is at either Walmart or HEB

Target for sure! We used to grocery shop at Wal Mart but thats about it... although sometimes if we need something in the middle of the night we go to Wal mart since ours is 24 hours. For clothes, household items and other stuff like that i just like the stuff Target has better.

I almost never go to walmart, but I think that's more because Target is closer.

I love Target better, but like some of the other girls mentioned it's SO much cheaper for groceries at Super Walmart--so I buy food there and just about everything else at Target. (But I'm addicted to Sam's club too--I'm obsessed with things in bulk!)

Target. I try to avoid Walmart at all costs, but sometimes you have to go there and get stuff that Target might not carry, such as a variety of tools/housewares, etc. So, when I have to go to Walmart, I go at a weird hour so that its not pack to the gills with folks.
