    Default Valley Stream Target Store Closing Kills Union's Great Big Box Hope



    "Eligible employees" will be invited to transfer to other Target locations or take an unpaid leave of absence and resume work once the store reopens, said Molly Snyder, a company spokeswoman.

    The union tells a different story. The most vocal pro-union employees have not been deemed eligible to return, union representatives said. Last week the union filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming that the store's closure is retaliation for employees' organizing activities.

    I don't shop in the one in my area because years back I had a run in with the store manager about where I had the truck parked while making a delivery to the mall that the Target was in..The truck was parked too close to his front door which it was not and he informed me that I should park out in the END of the parking lot and walk the stuff in..I told him ************* and he called the local Police dept and I was just leaving when the local cop showed up..I have not been to that store since and along with that other retail store Walmart ,it leaves little to shop at but we get by...I hope they unionize every big box store in America..

    Typical response Walleye, there is one reason why even a man of your high stature is there, the prices. Money talks but it can't walk to borrow a line from Neil Diamond. Either take the shirt off or walk out

    I have to shop at Walmart here in town as the only other store is Family Dollar. But I do wear my 492 shirt into the store (like yesterday) and it is interesting because lately I am getting some curious looks. On a funnier note, I have mentioned we have a Smith's grocery store here and Wells Fargo is inside the store. Had to do some banking and there was this construction type looking guy in line and did I ever get a big smile from him!!

    No matter what anyone says, it's all about the available money every family has to spend. Store selection is limited in many areas also.
    In today's world, the best we can do is pick and choose the items or purchases that in turn help support working families.
    Clothes, shoes, electronics, etc., and in some cases cars, are all made in foreign countries. We have been hog tied for decades and forced to choose between the basic necessities in life and paying the bills with the average working class income shrinking every year.
    I can't blame anyone that must support their family for the choice they make in order to keep a roof over their head, food on the table and a warm home.
