Brooke shops at Target, and she's noticed that prices at one store can differ from prices at another, sometimes significantly. She wants to know: Why's that? I put the question to Target, and a spokeswoman explained that different stores in the chain have different fixed costs, such as the lease, taxes, staffing and security. This is common among most big retail chains. That doesn't mean all prices will vary among stores. The prices of discounted items featured in company advertising will usually be the same everywhere.
