Oh ok! I never go there either, but they are a smaller store and was curious if they were everywhere!

Walmart is cheaper overall. I love Target though. I get great deals on clearance items. Especially clothes. Oh we don't have a Meijer here. I've only heard of it because my friend in Indiana goes there a lot.

We have Big Lots here. Long time ago, Big Lots used to be called Pic 'n Save. I liked the old name better.

Target definitely cannot be beat as far as clearance prices. I go just to hit the clearance endcaps.

I have to disagree- Meijer started here in Michigan and I believe we have well over 50 state-wide and that is not including the out-of-state Meijer's which are in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio. They have great grocery prices- but other household items can get pricey compared to WalMart. here in Lansing we also have a huge Big Lots by the Mall. I like that place too!

Fresh information directly from the store chains' own websites:

180 Meijer stores with 60,000 employees in five states

1,300 plus Big Lots stores nationwide

1,500 plus Target stores in 47 states, including 175 SuperTarget stores

4,100 plus WalMart facilities nationwide, plus 3,100 WalMart facilities in thirteen other countries



Meijer carries great produce at great sale prices. Their regular prices are not so great, though.

Big Lots carries such a variety of closeout stuff, that it can be quite fun to shop in there. There's also what I think of as the "Manufacturer's Hall of Shame"--goof ups, out of seasons, mislabels, underweights, discontinueds--macaroni and cheese that has lots of broken, cracked pasta; or comes in shapes for holidays or movies of the distant past (like Christmas tree pasta in May, or Star Wars III pasta shapes); labeling goof ups--the Smores on a Stick things recalled for unlabeled allergens--recently on sale at Big Lots complete with added sticker declaring the allergen; salad dressing with the wrong oil to aqueous phase ratio, so another extra sticker with the altered ingredient statement; Heinz salsa ketchup in huge quantities after Heinz pulled it from the market

Wal-Mart has decent prices on most of their items. I will drive the block to Aldi from Wal-Mart almost any day for grocery items and find better quality much cheaper, though.

Target has good sale prices, and their clearance endcap item prices can't be beat. Their clearance clothing racks, especially in the baby/toddler section, have some terrific bargains, too. The quality of the Target clothing seems much better than that at Wal-Mart. Some of their regular prices are not so hot, though.
