We have to have an insult level. We don't have to spend our money at Target. Only thing Target respects is the money.

TARGET - #CuttheCard
In 1998, Chesterfield Community Council(CCC), the late Bill Garth, Citizen Newspaper and Chatham Business Association led the effort to bring Target to 86st & Cottage Grove. On October 29, the community and city was informed by the media that Target is planning to close the Chatham (86st & Cottage Grove) and Morgan Park (117th & Marshfield) stores in a statement that these two(2) stores are underperforming and the stores are scheduled to close on February 1st.
CCC was shocked and dismayed regarding this announcement. This departure would leave a void in our communities by reducing some vital services including grocery, retail and pharmacy needs. Target is an anchor store that drives business to our areas. More than 100 people could lose their jobs; property taxes could rise; major retailers will be hesitant to open in our communities and the remaining retailers could raise prices for lack of competition. According to CNBC, August 22, 2018, "Target reports the strongest same store sales growth in 13 years". To add more insult, Target is opening a store in Logan Square and Rogers Park in Chicago.
Target has blatantly disrepected the African-American community and we are encouraging the community to BOYCOTT TARGET and #CuttheCard. DO NOT SHOP TARGET, ESPECIALLY DURING THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY SEASON.
