    Ironic how everyone says "I love thus-and-such Store" but aren't patronizing the establishment, so employees and management are laid off and then it closes. People either don't have the money to spend or are hesitant fork over their meager earnings, which leads to more businesses folding. Double whammy!

    I live in Minneapolis and know some executive-manager level people being let go. Suck to be them. They were totally counting on their careers. Thank GOD Bush and his Doctrine are out so our great country and recover from this financial mess that has hurt so many people. Thanks W. For nothing.

    It's really sad, considering the bulk of the layoffs were at the Downtown Minneapolis corporate office. I work downtown too, and a lot of Target employees would ride my bus. The bus was a bit emptier today. Very sad.

    Oh, and it was 600 employees. They eliminated 400 open positions, so that's an additional 400 people who won't be hired. Still, very dismal, and the biggest layoff in Target History. Best Buy, which is based just a city over in Richfield, MN is also about to do some hefty layoffs, since not enough people were willing to have their employ be bought out.

    Re: MaggieMay – No shit on the Bush Doctrine… My gf works for one of their card issuance depts and THANKFULLY her dept hasn't been cut. From what I've heard all the layoffs are corporate level. I don't think they will be building new Target stores until things setlle down.

    Not a shock. They have oversaturated the market. There are FOUR Targets within a 15 mile radius. It's ridiculous.

    Typical uneducated liberal morons blaming Bush. Don't you know ANYTHING? What started this mess? The housing crisis and people unable to pay their mortgages. People spending WAY more than they earn. People who feel entitled to things for free (liberals). Who caused the housing crisis? Clinton and his "everyone deserves a house even if they can't afford it". It's finally catching up to them. DIdn't you go to college to know that it takes 8 years for a presidents actions to finally be felt? We are feeling Clinton's actions! This is not Bush's fault, it's CLinton's fault. Us going to war has NOTHING to do with people spending more than they earn and feeling entitled to a house that is beyond their means. It has to do with people feeling unrightfully entitled.

    FOR THE BUSH BLAMERS: YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE A LEGISLATIVE BRANCH IN OUR COUNTRY, DON'T YOU?
    ….
    THEY CREATE LAWS (OR FOR THE NOW DEMOCRAT CONGRESS, NOT!)
    THEY CONTROL FUNDING (THERE CAN'T BE A FIVE YEAR WAR WITHOUT IT!)
    ….
    OUR CONGRESS WAS DEMOCRATIC CONTROLLED THE LAST FEW YEARS. INSTEAD OF PASSING LAWS TO REGULATE BANKS AND GROW OUR ECONOMY, THEY SPENT 13 MONTHS DEBATING OUTSOURCING THE CONGRESSIONAL DINING HALL!!!
    ….
    TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY TOO DEMOCRATS!!! YOU CAN'T BLAME BUSH LIKE HE'S THE ONLY ONE IN THE GOVERNMENT!!!

    They are laying off 1,500 people because they sent their jobs to India where the pay is lower, and the supposed quality of work delivered is lower too.
