The City of Carson is lucky to have two Target stores. If you are not familiar with them, you can get everything from underwear to potato chips to prescriptions to stereos, all in a one-stop-shopping experience.

Target offers a "REDCARD," which links to your bank accounts, and gives an automatic 5% off of your total purchase every time. 

They also assist local education by donating 1% of your total to the school of your choice. Sign up and help your son or daughters school, by linking to Academies of Education and Empowerment!
