Perhaps you're one of the nearly 1 million consumers who have signed the Boycott Target Pledge. Maybe you're one of the many commenters on our Facebook page who have cancelled their Target credit cards and told the company exactly why. Or maybe you've simply shied away from the store, especially when nature calls. Where should you shop now?
Faith Driven Consumer, dedicated to helping Christians live out their faith in the marketplace, has offered 10 alternatives. All of these stores have a rating of at least 40 out of 100 based on Faith Driven Consumer's stringent Faith Equality Index scorecard. All of these businesses are far from perfect when it comes to catering to Christian shoppers, but they're ranking higher than Target right now.
Faith Driven Consumer has listed alternatives that they believe better fit a Christian's "values and biblical worldview" and are "either a direct competitor to Target or [offer] products in competition with Target," as their website states.

— Toys R Us

What do you think of these alternatives, and can you recommend others?
