We use the 'French' pronunciation of Target here in Minnesota
The first time I heard anyone say `tar-zhay' was the day before
yesterday. But the speaker is visiting from Maine and gives a French
pronunciation of her own family name, where her son gives an American
pronunciation. So, I thought, after I figured out what in the world she
was talking about, that she had gone to 'Target' and was giving some odd
pronunciation just to be funny.
Since Target is such a high-class place to shop, I go there all the
time. I have ever heard any of the employees not advertisements refer to
it by any other name than 'Target.'
