Target. In our area, they pay their workers better and seem to have a better staff. YMMV.

Target by far. Better selection and better quality, IMO.
No contest for me: Target. Better selection, much nicer staff and the store layout is really easy to navigate. Plus, I like supporting a company who actually treats their staff well.
Target, hands down. Though our one K-Mart isn't terrible.
I don't go to Wal-Mart.
In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
Between Target and Walmart, Target is a much nicer store to shop.
The nearest K-Mart is over an hour away, so I'm not including them in my comparison.

No K-Mart, Target hasn't yet arrived in Alberta, so I guess it's Walmart.

Wal-Mart. Target has less selection at higher prices and pretends to be something it's not, ie mid-range when it's just a discount store (and runs the most IRRITATING ADS EVER CREATED with Target Lady) and K-Mart is trying to be Wal-Mart without the selection. Target always seems dark and kind of disordered, too.
Of course for groceries Meijer is generally better but if you're outside the midwest they're not an option usually.
Target by far. Walmart in my area is not a nice store.
Target. I don't go to Wal Mart either.
Target for household/decor items
Kmart for clothes
Walmart for food
I like Shopko, too.

Our KMart closed, and I refuse to go to Walmart, so it is Target (when I can't avoid it. I find that some of the higher class thrift stores have nicer clothes at lower prices than all of these three stores).

I hardly ever go to a K-Mart, even though it is the closest of those stores to me (although none are very far away). I prefer Target for clothes and most household needs. I generally only go to Wally-World when I need a prescription refilled, and then I might hit their grocery area as well (though it is 50/50 as to whether the item I want is actually cheaper than my local grocery stores).
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
Even if Target just didn't feel somehow more downmarket than the Dollar Store (probably from trying too hard-seriously, if I want to buy "designer" clothes, I'm not buying them from your store, Tarjay, and if I want cheap clothes, I can get the same quality for less at Wal-Mart) the Target Lady commercials would have killed it for me. If I thought there were any actual chance of encountering the Target Lady, not only would I not shop there I wouldn't come within three hundred yards of a Target...
I normally shop at Walmart, but that's because the nearest Target is 100 miles away. But whenever we go to the city with the Target, I always make a point to go there. I usually buy clothes & some household stuff. Our Walmart is 2 years old, so it's nice, open & bright. But I usually won't buy clothing there as a lot of it is a little too Miley Cyrus for me (skinny jeans & distressed printed tees).
We have a Kmart, too, but the store is dark & dingy, the prices are usually higher than Walmart, but with less selection, and the buyer for our Kmart must be an old man, because the clothing selection is geared more for older people.
Walmart sucks. Almost everything in walmart is made in China. Even though I am originally from Japan, I live in the US so I try to buy made in USA products only if I can.
Walmart just because they're more of them and it's closer than the nearest Target. Plus, IA with danceronice about Target. I've often felt that Target was overpriced for the items they sell. Besides clothes (barely), I really don't think that Target sells better quality items that Walmart. They both sell a lot of cheap items but Target often presents itself as not selling cheap items.
I like Meijer too but all of the Meijer stores are a bit far from my home so I rarely shop there.
