To Jim McCallister, who recently wrote in to say that he shopped at Walmart in Rosemead because of low prices, and to others who plead that “low prices” will be great for Burbank: Interesting to note that this month, Target beat Walmart as the low-price leader in the nation, according to research done by Bloomberg Industries.

This is not the first time that Target has won the low-price wars, but this time, reportedly, the gap was wider than ever, with Target the clear winner.

Instead of wasting $8 worth of gasoline driving to Rosemead and back, perhaps McCallister should check out Target, a great retailer that has been serving this community, providing jobs and paying taxes here for years.
