Guess Who's Not Going to Shop There?
Target Stores are now in Canada...since March or April of 2013. They have taken over the Zeller's Stores (previously owned by the Hudson Bay Company). Target is looking for new areas as they are getting a very bad reception in the United States...due to their non-Christian attitudes and policies.
Target Stores Head Office is in France...which is now
Muslim-controlled...and explains the 'non-Christian' attitude.
We support Canadian Tire (Canada’s largest retailer), Dollarama, Home Hardware, Hudson’s Bay, Sears Canada…and clothing stores of Holt-Renfrew, Le Chateau, Reitmans…also small business owners…plus 5 or 6 major banks, 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 Wall 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,
gay and lesbian causes 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 the 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 US 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, Dick Forrey...Veterans Helping Veterans!
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!
And this notice in today's Hamilton Spectator states:
Target Canada says Holiday Sales
will be the Key to its Future Here.
