Shop Somewhere Else
I like Target stores. Our family shops there often. Not any more.

Target will no longer allow Salvation Army bell ringers to stand outside their stores. Apparently, the Salvation Army has been an exception to Target's policy against solicitation. They are now too weary to continue beating back other requests from crazies like churches and Scout groups, so they're just saying no to everyone. I know Target thinks a lot of their charitable giving habits (see the Tiger Woods commercials), but apparently the SA doesn't fit into their plans. So, unless Target issues a press release saying they're giving a sizable check to the SA to make up for the lost revenue, I'm shopping elsewhere. Here are some options from Annette Bauer, a Salvation Army spokeswoman in the Twin Cities.:
Bauer said bell ringing will continue at Marshall Field's stores, which Target Corp. sold this year to May Department Stores Co. She said it also will continue at such retailers as Sears, J.C. Penney, Kmart, large grocery stores and Wal-Mart, among other stores.
