Target was founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1902. It is the second-most successful discount retailer in the United States, offering more upscale, trend-forward merchandise.
Target offers a quality
I go out my way to shop at Target even though their competitors are closer to me. Target offers a quality that most traditional discount stores still lack. I absolutely love their GO women's fashion line which that highlights up and coming designers.

My go to place
I nominate Target because it's my go to place for whatever I need. From the time I was 16 years old it has served as the place to get everything I needed for school, living and accessories as well as to serve as a place to pass time with friends.

Ever since I learned about Tar-zhay, I fell in love with the ads, the merchandise - and it is the one brand I can think of that never disappoints. Now that is a true Lovemark. I cannot think of a time I have gone and not been excited to find smart, well-designed merchandise at a great price! These discounts do not lose their luster once you bring them home either. Much of the clothing I have bought on impulse have become my most tried and true pieces of my wardrobe. Although the fabrics and materials used may be of a less expensive quality, they still last a healthy product lifespan whereas other more expensive trendy shops have fallen apart before they barely got much use.
What really hits the mark is its design-for-everyone credo. That alone is enough to turn Target lovers into a religion. What a beautiful mission and how revolutionary for a big discount retailer! Last night I went to pick up a lint roller refill because they truly have the best price for the quantity at any store I've found. I looked at the cards, stationery and office supplies, the bargain bins, the tupperware storage that had been advertised on sale, the shoes, the lingerie, the clothes, and the Valentine's section. I came to the register and when the checker rang up my lint roller refill, she asked, "That's it?". I said, "Yes, shocking isn't it?" I usually come out with at least $30 or $40 no matter what I went in to buy. I always come out feeling happy. Even when it's been messy in the aisles, it is never depressing. We laughed. And I'll be back.

I love everything about it
I have a deep, irrational love of Target. I love everything about it, from the time I walk in, to the time that I leave. Even bad Targets are good. I'm a senior in college getting an IMC degree and my professors have used me in several classes as an example of everything from brand loyalty to deeper consumer insight to product development. And why shouldn't they? I'm the perfect example of a college student who will willingly spend $20 extra to go to Target because she feels like every product there was made for her. If you don't like Target I won't understand till you give me a good reason and I'll probably still call you crazy.

When I shop it's Target
I first saw Target in this odd Frank Whalley movie, with Jennifer Connelly. It was an offbeat flick but they made Target seem like a neat place. And The BULLSEYE LOGO, wow. Their ads are awesome. Target is just the coolest place, the prices, the products, it’s way better than Walmart. I’ve worked in retail all my life, but when I shop it’s Target.

Hard to resist your charms!
Ah, Target. I’m so torn with my love/hate for you. On one hand, you’re nothing but another big box retailer from the Wal-Mart book of closing down local mom and pops and not contributing much back to the local economies of the cities and towns in which you thrive. BUT..... Oh, your STUFF. Cool, affordable, awesome. You make it so hard to resist your charms! Ah, the moral dilemma!

Thanks to Target for taking care of us all
When I go in Target I always think to myself that we should just let them do it. The store really caters to the widest group of shoppers. It's been a long time since that's been the case. I've been in retail for years, always feeling like I need to take care of shoppers' needs, things that I don't particularly like to market. Thanks to Target for taking care of us all and possibly enabling us to all rise up to a new level.

Target's coming! Target's coming! I'm so thrilled it's finally coming to Northern Manhattan/Marble Hill. I've loved Target for years and could only visit it once or twice a year when I went home to the midwest. Target means affordable accessories and really cool cosmetics in a big, open space...now that it carries Isaac Mizrahi fashions, I'm even more addicted. I also love their Target logo. It's like Wal-Mart prices with better quality design.

Infused with the same excitement
I can still remember when Target first came to my small town when I was in grade school. I couldn't understand why my mother was so excited to take me shopping there on Saturday mornings, but it wasn't long before I became infused with the same excitement. To this day, I still carry around that love and loyalty for Target stores. Where else can you find quality, superior products for discount prices? Every time I go in to pick up some small thing, the new clothes, stylish housewares or cute shoes beckon to me, and I end up leaving with a lot more than just my one small item.

Hate shopping, but love Target
There is no other store that rocks my world the way Target does. I LOVE this store. I'm not a materialistic person, hate shopping, but love Target. Its clean, bright, well-organized stores are a delight. If I have to go out and actually buy something, I always consider Target first -- and if i can't run to Target to get it, I try and get my husband to run the errand instead.
