I wouldn't shop at Target if they paid ME. They have given tons of money to Michele Bachmann; that gives you some idea of their ethics and judgment. They have given to other Right-wing politicians. WE ARE THE 99% - BOYCOTT TARGET!!

I'm in the 99%, and I like Target. I shop local on a regular basis, support the local Farmers Market, contribute to local causes, but damn it, if I need toilet paper, you aren't going to make me feel guilty because I go to a chain store to get it. Leave frickin politics out of my toilet paper choices Ken !

Yeah for Target opening in our local neighborhood. I know it is a chain store but Westwood needs a kick to get itself into the 21st Century. Support our Village and make it a happening place once again. Madeleine who is Sold on Westwood

I am a local resident and I am thrilled that Target is coming to Westwood. I support my local shops, but our neighborhood is in dire need of an upgrade as far as local shopping goes.

Finally, no more driving across town. Best deals, should put Rite Aid and CVS to shame for the rip off prices.

I'd rather boycott you as an lcsw! Go shop online at NPR!

I just saw that Target is coming to the area, which I think is great. I hope! Traffic getting into the village is already a nightmare, so hopefully this store won't contribute to making it that much worse. Despite that inconvenience, there will be something like 250 jobs created by this one store. Boycott all you want Ken! You are probably working as a clinical social worker, and have a stable job in this economy, as I do (OTR/L). Look at it from the humanistic aspect. Approximately 250 people will be working, and no longer feeding off of the unemployment or welfare system.
