    Target stock dropped $1.5 billion in the 9 days since they went unisex - will this be their end?

    The boycott over Target's decision to make restrooms and changing rooms open to anyone has caused a national uproar, with over 1 million people signing a petition to boycott the stores.  Now today the company's stock is down $1.5 billion dollars, dropping 3% in just nine days.  Remember that Target started to decline several years ago after they kept an extended period of vulnerability in their on-line payment systems hidden and many Americans had their cards compromised.  It seems as if social engineering is adding another issue to their plate.

    I can't imagine what idiot decided this was a good idea for this marginally successful chain of stores.

    Most often decisions such as this are designed to attract a certain group of shoppers to their store.  I have no idea how many men would want to use the women's restroom or vice versa. But this has got to be a very small number that would most likely not boost their sales that much.

    So what they are doing is catering to a very small group of shoppers while driving away their regular shoppers.

    I would hope the individual whom made this decision would at least hear something from the stock holders regarding his decision making abilities.

    Target's stock is down a mere 3% since this stupid Bathroom Boycott thing started. Historically, this type of boycott has little or no effect on a store's bottom line in the long term.

    Wall Street doesn't seem to be worried. And, to put things in perspective, while one million signatures sounds huge, just their web site alone sees 8.9 million unique visitors each month, and over 2 million people shop there every day. 43% of the almost 125 million American households shop at Target

    I had forgotten about the compromised credit cards but now that you've reminded me I see the restroom issue in a whole new light. From one standpoint, this appears to be a really stupid decision and a strange area in which to take a stand. However, seen from the standpoint of a failing business whose executives don't want to accept blame for the causes of that failing, it makes much more sense. Left on its own without the restroom issue, the company would just slowly sink into oblivion and the company executives would have to shoulder the blame for the failure. Now, with this issue and a major boycott of the store, the failure can be blamed on the millions of unreasonable consumers who targeted (pun intended) their store leaving the executives untarnished resumes.
    I am always amazed at how the evil minds of big business work...

    It is hard to say what kind of effect it will have on Target, but I predict that it won't be good overall. To cater to the few at the expense of the many is just plain dumb. I can look at it only from the viewpoint of a small rural state who likes both Target and has a love/hate relationship with WalMart.
    Target has a big distribution center near my city, and it has just put in a couple of new stores that seem to be doing great business. However, WalMart is the biggie because Sam Walton was from here, and the headquarters are in Bentonville, Arkansas. A lot of people here don't like the way WalMart does business, so they support Target. We are also the buckle of the Bible Belt, and some of these "jewels on the buckle," may go ballistic over Target's decision and take all their business to WalMart. I think Target's decision may not hurt them in states in the Northeast and liberal states like California, but it will hurt them in the South and Midwest. We will just have to wait and see.

    This is the second move in choosing the LGBT over their customers. About a yr ago they came out in support of Gays. That is not what a business does, and after compromising their customers credit card information, they should be focusing on their customer's safety economic, and otherwise.

    I stopped shopping at Target when they came out of the closet over a year ago. I don't want to support a company that has chosen to lose focus on doing business with the public at large.

    It also puts the employees at risk of having to follow the company line, and many may have reasons not to do so. Then, will Target coerce them into submitting to their will?

    The courts have forced people to do business that is against their beliefs, and that is wrong. A business should be able to pick their customers. Now companies like target are pushing from the other direction of the courts.

    The tail shouldn't wag the dog, and that is what is happening with the LGBT. The problem is that the whole country is setup for 2 biological genders, and there has to be a simple rule to pick one of the 2 that makes sense.

    How do you tell the dif betw a TV and a TG?
    The LGBT used their political powers, to get the thin edge of the wedge to militantly attack the NORMAL. Now they want to pound the wedge further into Normal to make the Ab Normal the New Normal.

    That is very wrong because they constitute only a very small fraction of the total population, and that is reserved for the Norm.

    Trying to equate the LGBT with Heterosexuals is like trying to equate the Left with the Right. They are diametrically opposite.

    No, Unisex restrooms won't be the end of Target.
    Stocks rise and fall based upon the market's (fear) of "what might happen". Most people who shop at Target probably don't even go to the restroom. Few people would pass up a good bargain on products just because of restrooms. Target simply hasn't been as competitive as Wal-Mart, Sears/K-Mart, Costco, and Amazon.
    If I were in a restroom and a woman walked into a stall it wouldn't bother me. Most people don't go around exposing themselves in public restrooms. Toilets in Europe are unisex in many places.
    Apple just lost billions of dollars on the market and it had nothing to do with restrooms. The stock market is always a predictor.
    This is especially true if the product or service remains good.
    On the other hand Chipotle lost billions over persistent  E. coli and norovirus outbreaks people experienced from eating there.

    This reminds me of the Merry Christmas controversy a few years ago when some stores including Target decided to be more inclusive and told their employees to stop sayimg Merry Christmas to their customers and also dropping Chistmas tree in favor of holiday tree. It was a losing proposition which they reversed themself after public outrage. This bathroom directive is so unnecessary and a self made controversy. Are there going to be a bathroom police now?

    A sexual predator was allowed into a women's shelter claiming to be ‘transgender’ to assault, the women there. That happened in Toronto. Gay/lesbian/trans/cross dressers (sexual deviants)are only 2% of the US population yet, Christians are forced to bake cakes for 2 men 'marrying' (Religious Freedoms?)or pay huge fines which ruin their entire family's lives. These are also the same people who're in with NAMBLA freaks and trying to 'normalize' pedophilia. These sickos are being given privileges over the general population. Ever see, the crime stats of homosexuals(serial killer problem)? Many are depraved in other ways than sexually .It's a humiliating time to be an American. Imagine what other countries think of us! Target was never a store, I cared for anyways. There WILL  be assaults against women & girls if men are allowed in bathrooms, shower rooms, locker rooms. It's a free pass for deviates to harm our sisters, daughters, mothers & friends. LOOK at planned parenthood and the UN and their sick agendas.Watch:"Cultural Imperialism: The Sexual Rights Agenda" (StandForFamiliesWorldwide)& read;

Perverted sicko's do NOT have the right to use the same bathroom as my 8 y/o daughter. NO. NAMBLA should not be a LEGAL lobby group, fighting for their 'rights' to abuse our dear children, legally.

    Women and girls sharing restrooms with guys is not professional at all, from Target or anywhere else. People that are born male and decide they want to feel like a woman, should have their own restrooms. It's easy to just have 3 restrooms; 1 for people that are born female, 1 for people born male, and an extra restroom for others.

    Having unisex public restrooms is making it too easy for child-molesters and perverts to blend in with girls. So if a guy feels like he wants to dress like a woman today and go in the women's restroom at Target then he will. It seems Target is now "trending" because of this bad decision.

    Truthfully Target is simply trying to get more customers through there doors, in the attempt to profit more money, with the addition of transgender bathrooms. The corporation atmosphere in the United States is severly fierce , extremely intense, and highly competitive in todays times. With Wal-mart raking in the majority of the profits, many of it's retail competitors are perfectly willing to do just about anything to gain new customers. Theres quite frankly a retail and franchise corporate  war for profits taking place in the country today. The addition and installation of transgender bathrooms might temporarily boost Target's sales from the transgender community. In the long-term this approach will also come with business repracussion in the future. There are many fake posing  trandsgenders, sex offenders, violent rapists, sexual predators, and many other sexually perverted American citizens. Eventually after the trandsgender restroom is implemented and installed there will be many in the near future who will find loopholes to abuse the restroom situation for there own lustful desires.
