When a store manages to get the credit-card details of some forty million customers stolen and has so far only said, "Ooops!" about it and "they're pretty sure they have plugged the leak," it doesn't bode well for their future.
This saddens me; I like Target, which has generally offered slightly better quality* and a lot more style than the usual overgrown modern five-and-dime. But I'm one of the forty million, waiting for the other shoe to drop and wondering what I ought to do next. If I do go back, I'll pay in cash.
* Though darned if I can find decent, long-lasting knee socks anywhere these days. And it's not even worth the effort to actually darn them.
