So national chain stores like Target and Walmart are still claiming they closed stores because of shop lifting. Really? The real reason the small Target stores closed is because they were so poorly stocked. When half the shelves are empty it's a strong reminder that there are other stores to shop at. A recent search for a common skin cleanser stated that 3 different Target stores had the item in stock. Every store I went to did not have it in stock and no clerks would check to see if it was in backs stock. I ended up ordering from Amazon, not my first choice but one I did make that took a sale away from Target.
