I have seen a couple of comments about Target as being "a high-class place

to shop." I considered these comments to be litotes, or at least

ironic. The Target stores here are the same as K-mart, so the

frenchification of the name has always been taken to be humorous around

here. The high school kids who can't find sloppy enough clothes while

"thrifting", i.e. haunting thrift shops, buy cheap baggy things at

Target or K-Mart. Is Target REALLY tonier than K-Mart in other regions?
