Struggling to make up for deep losses, Target has demonstrated just how desperate things are becoming for the company that lets men use the women's restrooms and dressing rooms.

For the first time in its history, Target offered a 10% discount on every product in its stores and online this past Sunday. To take advantage of Target's sale, shoppers had to cut out a coupon from Sunday's weekly and take it to Target's stores. Online orders automatically applied the discount.

The unusual sale tactic came one week after Target reported a massive 7.2% drop in sales in the second quarter, following the launch of the AFA #BoycottTarget campaign.

Target CEO Brian Cornell admitted in a conference call with media that traffic is way down and that sales are hurting. "In the second quarter, our No. 1 challenge was traffic, which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories," he said.

Although he did not mention the AFA boycott by name, 1.4 million people have pledged to Mr. Cornell that they will not shop at Target.

If you haven't already, sign the pledge to boycott Target now! Target should not allow men to enter the women's restrooms and dressing rooms.

Call Target and let them know you've signed the Pledge. Call Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680, option 1, then 1 again.
