We realize that a great many American shoppers will begin shopping for Christmas this weekend and especially immediately after Thanksgiving.
Target is hoping that you won't care that they allow men into women's bathrooms and changing rooms and will do your Christmas shopping with them. AFA knows that you do care.
Here are three convincing reasons you shouldn't shop Target this Christmas:
Despite Target's denial that men entering women's rooms is a problem, the reality remains that it is a major problem. We have the proof.
Just last month, a man was charged with videotaping women inside a Target store changing room in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. AFA has documented at least ten other recent cases in which women have been exploited by sexual predators inside Target stores.
Boycott efforts are impacting the company
Target's policy is costing them money...big money. Since the boycott began, Target's stock price has dropped nearly 20 percent.
Target Corp. announced last week that it will close a dozen stores in 2018. The 12 stores, CNBC reported, are spread across Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota and Texas, and will close Feb. 3.
Stay the course with us
Any company as large as Target can withstand a short-term loss of sales. That's where Christmas shoppers come in. Target is banking on this Christmas season to turn around this trend for 2017.
Let's hold firm to our conviction that men have no place in women's restrooms and dressing rooms and continue our pledge to boycott Target stores, especially through the Christmas shopping season.
With Target hoping you'll do your Christmas shopping with them, send them the strongest possible message you can and let Target know, "Don't Count On Me!"
Here is what you can do that will make a difference:
- Forward this information to friends and family. Invite them to sign the boycott pledge at www.afa.net/target.
- Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073 and personally let them know you are boycotting their stores.
- Voice your concerns on Target's Facebook page.
