Target’s CEO can deny it all he wants. What I want to ask him is with a 6 billion dollar loss in stocks since you announced pro-transgender bathrooms in Target stores, how is that pandering to the minority opinion working out for you?  MB

As retailer Target sees its stock plummeting and sales dropping in the midst of a boycott over its recently announced pro-transgender bathroom policy, the company’s CEO is insisting the weather is the cause of falling sales, not the company’s bathroom policy.

In a recent Wall Street Journal interview, Target CEO Brian Cornell pegged the downturn in the company’s fortunes to the cold weather as opposed to anything the company itself is doing or not doing.

“It’s been a very wet and cold start to the year and it’s reflected in our sales,” Cornell told the paper. “We haven’t seen anything from a structural standpoint that gives us pause.”

In other words, the weather is responsible for the downturn, not Target’s  “structural” transgender bathroom policy.

Indeed, a month after the initial announcement, the Target CEO came out to double down on the transgender agenda, so it appears the company is digging in heels instead of looking for ways at appeal to customers.

Still, Cornell’s weather assessment does not quite tally with other reports stating Target has taken a major hit since it announced its transgender policy.

Granted, most retailers have been down over the first quarter and the start of the second quarter this year. But Target has been on a downward trend exceeding the fall of its competitors. Target, for instance, says it will post a $1 to a $1.20 adjusted earnings per share, which is well below the $1.38 analysts expected. Further, at 1.2 percent, the company’s sales are below the 1.5 to 2.5 percent annual target it had hoped to realize. With the tumble, Target warned that its sales might be flat by the end of the second quarter.

A closer examination, however, shows that sales and the company’s reputation have taken a particular hit since its April 19 pro-transgender bathroom announcement, a decision that sponsored a major boycott movement that earned 1.2 million supporters in only a week’s time.

A recent Business Insider article noted that Target’s reputation has tumbled six points among consumers in the last several months. In the months prior to the bathroom policy announcement, 42 percent of consumers said they would shop at the department store chain. But in the month following the bathroom policy announcement, the number dropped to 36 percent.

The reports also found that consumer perception of the Target brand is at its lowest in two years.

Whatever the cause of the drop, since April 19, Target has lost nearly $6 billion in stock values.

  1. What an idiot – and this guy runs the show? Amazing how Target is willing to take such a huge hit because of the demands of a few misguided individuals, as compared the rest of the country.

    • `There are those who just flat out will not admit to being wrong no matter the cost. I hope Target plummets right into the pit. People have already been hurt because of their idiotic “policy” and they could care less.

    • Hi Sue and Greg, I just don’t understand why these major stores are willing to give in the demands of a few? It doesn’t matter that it puts young girls and young boy in harms way to have these type of bathrooms, they just want to be politically correct! The ways of God do not figure into any of their decisions. These are they things that are taking this country down and putting our children and everyone at risk! It doesn’t help that our “Commander in Chief” keeps pushing his LGBT agenda off on everyone.

      • Obama and his threats of defunding various agencies for noncompliance is ridiculous. Not only is what he is doing illegal, it’s downright immoral. Even if you take God out of the equation, should not common sense tell you that men don’t belong in the women’s bathroom?
