    Easy, Hobby Lobby! Personally, disagree with their stances so I avoid them anyway.

    I have little to no opinion on any of the aforementioned companies but Chick Fil A.

  • Options
    I could get rid of Hobby Lobby and be okay.  Chickfila has to stay for Saturday morning breakfast, Starbucks for airport coffee, and duh- Target is my happy place.
  • Options
    We only have 1 out of 4 so I'm going to vote out hobby lobby since ive never heard of it lol

    @kels0091:  Think craft store + decor.  Lots of "farmhouse" inspired decor right now (Joanna Gaines-type style).  The good thing is they run stuff 50% off ALL THE TIME (and have a 40% coupon you can use if something is not on sale).  The bad thing is they've done some questionable things with employee health coverage (birth control) and had a small scandal with "smuggling (maybe wrong word)"  antiquities to have in a museum about the Bible.

    I knit, but Hobby Lobby can go since I have lived my life without it so far (there aren't any in my area).  I don't know if there is a Chick-fil-a near me either, but I know a lot of people that love it,  Ironically the closest Starbucks to me is located inside Target.  Speaking of which, I'm heading there for school supplies, now. :)  I WILL resist the flair pens.  I WILL.

    Definitely Hobby Lobby. Then maybe Starbucks...maybe..
  • Options
    I am glad to see I'm not the only one who doesn't geek out over Starbucks. I thought I'd get flamed for that one.
  • Options
    Starbucks can go. Dunkin’ Donuts for life!!!!
  • Options
    I got 90% of my wedding stuff at Hobby Lobby. Chickfila is lyfe! And Target is my go-to place. So I'd probably have to say Starbucks.
  • Options
    I'm with @kels0091. Another deprived Canadian here. Have been to CFA once, it was ok. Never been to Hobby Lobby. Don't drink coffee or consume sugar anymore so SB is basically dead to me lol. I'd go with Chick fil a cuz I still think I like the idea of Hobby Lobby and would like to visit one someday.

    I'm pretty upset with Targets remodel so I think ill take it out on them.   :D
  • Options
    Starbucks. Even though I worked at one in high school. I can make better coffee/espresso at home. Hobby Lobby and Target are black holes for my money, but I still love them so much. I don't eat Chick-fil-a that often since we don't eat fast food much, but I do love it occasionally. I can make my own coffee, I can't make my own chicken sandwich and waffle fries like they can.
  • Options
    Easy one for me. Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee. 
  • Options
    Never knew much about Hobby Lobby’s scandals or employee health policies but from what I’m reading here, I probably wouldn’t support them in the future. Gotta read up on that more though, now I’m curious. 
    Also not really down with Chick-fil-A’s anti-LGBTQIA social affiliations so gonna have to pass on them too.

    Starbucks is overpriced but usually has a good vibe. And Target is life, so I’ll take them both and leave the other two:) 
  • Options
    Hobby lobby because I also have never been to one. Never Target. NEVER. 
  • Options
    Target goes. I love Hobby Lobby, live off Starbucks, and love those chicken sammiches!
  • Options
    Another vote for Starbucks. 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.
