Walmart, Kmart etc?
Are they close to your house? If not do you think its worth the trip to say go 25 miles or more to get there?

Around here WalMart! When I was in FL it was Target! I guess it just depends on where I am at.

Mine are the Dollar Tree, everythings a $1 great for class gifts.
Walmart

And sometimes Kmart but lately they don't seem to be cheaper then the competion or have what they advertise, guess has to do with their "bankruptcy"

I guess Walmart. I LOVE Target but the closest one in any direction is an hour away so we only go there on bigger shopping trips!

Target has always been my favorite. It is now the closest to me (less than 5 minutes) so that is a huge plus. Then it wasoul be Wal Mart. I do not really like going into KMart anymore, they never have anything I want so it is a waste of time.

WalMart is less than 5 min away....Target is a couple of minutes away. KMart, I have to go to another city for...but when they have a sale it's usually worth it. I go to that city atleast once a week anyway. 'Most' everything else is within 5 minutes of our place...that's the way things were built around here.I went to a Family Dollar for the first time here a couple of weeks ago and it was more expensive than Target. I like going to the $1 store(everything is a dollar) around this time of year because they have great wrapping paper, and nick nacks for a buck.

Wal-Mart.

As RainMan said, "Kmart sucks.."

I don't really think of Target as a "discount" store.

And I like Kohl's when they're having sales, although I don't think of them as a discount store either.

All of them are within 5 minutes of my house.

WalMart, then Target. I never go to Kmart. They just don't seem to have anything anymore.

I also go to Dolor Tree, Dolar General and a few little dollar stores. But my favorite is called King Dollar - It's HUGE!
