Wal-Mart or Target?

Assuming I have no other choices - and have serious ethical concerns about issues like fair pay and equitable treatment of workers (primary), environmentalism (secondary) and commitment to localism (tertiary) - should I shop at Wal-Mart or Target? [more inside]

Urban vs. suburban customer experience

When I go to a Wal-Mart or a Home Depot in an urban location (aka, lots of black customers) and then I go to suburban locations of these stores, I've notice that in the urban areas, the lines are longer, there are fewer staff to help, the store is generally a bit shabbier, and the employess seem to be less-well trained and held to lower standards regarding how they treat their customers.

What stores are ranked directly below Wal-Mart?

In this NYT article, it says "...Wal-Mart's $312 billion in sales last year exceeded the sales of the next five biggest retailers combined." How can I find out who those five big retailers are and how much they made? Are these rankings based on U.S. sales, or worldwide + U.S.? Googling gives me data for 2004, but I can't find anything for 2005.
