Target Stores & Veterans & Poppies??????


I can’t be sure the article I have posted with this blog is accurate, not everything that comes up on the internet is always factual. What is factual is that there was a situation last year (2013) regarding veterans selling poppies inside the newly opened Charlottetown Target Store. The Legion were told they could not set up inside the store but were welcome to stand outside. Very considerate of them to allow aged veterans to stand outside in the cold of November. That in its self is enough to stop me ever shopping at a Target store. Read the article and then judge for yourself.

TARGET STORES ARE NOW IN CANADA , SINCE MARCH

OR APRIL OF 2013.
THEY HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ZELLERS STORES. TARGET

IS LOOKING FOR NEW AREAS AS THEY ARE GETTING A

VERY BAD RECEPTION IN THE U.S. MAINLY DUE TO THEIR

NON-CHRISTIAN ATTITUDES AND POLICIES.

TARGET STORES HEAD OFFICE IS IN FRANCE . THE OFFICE

IS  NOW MUSLIM CONTROLLED, WHICH EXPLAINS THE

NON-CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE. WE SUPPORT CANADIAN TIRE,

HOME HARDWARE, ETC.  THOSE WHICH ARE CANADIAN

OWNED AND OPERATED.

Target Stores What a surprise!  Wasn’t it last Christmas that

Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front

of their stores?

Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote:
Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud
sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial all during  our
Spring recognition event.  Remember, there are  also
Canadians occupying space on these walls.

We received the following reply from the local TARGET

management:
“Veterans do not meet our Area of giving. We only donate to

the arts, social action groups and education.”

So I’m thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, and

Veterans in general, do not meet their donation criteria, then

something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not

asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small

sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.  As a follow-up,

I e-mailed the TARGET U.S. Corporate Headquarters and
their response was the same…That’s their National policy!!!

Then I looked into the company further. They will not allow the

Marines to collect for ‘Toys for Tots’ at any of their Stores. And

during the  recent Iraq deployment, they would not allow families

of employees who were called up for Active duty to continue their

insurance coverage while they were on  military service..

Now, I’m thinking again.. If TARGET cannot support American

(or Canadian) Veterans, then why should my family and I support

their stores by spending our hard earned American or Canadian

dollars in their stores??? and, have their profits sent to France to

Support Muslim Organizations.

Sincerely,

Their computer system was hacked and 70 million people’s credit cards and personal

information was jeopardized and Target only indicated that they try and provide

better computer protection in the future.

Please send this on to everyone you know, to let Target  know
we don’t need them either, we’re all in a position to reduce sales to
these stores as soon as this gets around….

THERE IS POWER IN THE PEN AND THE COMPUTER EMAILS !!

God Bless and keep reading
