Target Boycott Working: Stock Loses $10 BillionWritten by Michael J. Matt | Editor
"Did you hear that? When asked about over 1.25 million people who are boycotting his store he shrugs it off and uses the word "handful." Don't let Target's arrogance fool you. We are having an impact and the boycott is making a difference.
"Since we launched the Boycott Target Pledge April 21, over 1.25 million people have signed on. Another interesting fact, Target has remained silent on Facebook and Twitter. The most recent post on Target’s Facebook page came April 23, and their Twitter has been silent since April 19.
According to Breitbart News "Target's stock has fallen 20 percent - from $84 per share to $67 per share - since it imposed the pro-transgender policy on its customer base of families. That loss has chopped roughly $10 billion from the overall shareholder value of the company, according to a chart produced by Yahoo.com."
REMNANT COMMENT: I have five daughters, and if Target doesn’t care about my little girls why should I care about Target! In other words, it will be a cold day in hell before I walk back into a Target Store.
