Recent News
-Target announced in January of 2009 that they would be cutting back on thousands of positions. This also included their location in Little Rock, Arkansas. There has been questions about whether CEOs are included in the cut backs. The number of employees that are being cut equals about 9% of their overall population I have always prefered Target over Wal-Mart. My friends and I always go there for all of our needs and even to just hangout. The fact that almost all of them have Starbucks makes them even better. Sources
