Fewer shoppers are going to Target stores and the company's recent data breach is likely to blame.

Other retailers did not see a similar fall. Target isn't confirming the sales loss. But a retail analyst says this is the worst possible time for shoppers to avoid the discount retailer, since the final weekend before Christmas is usually one of the busiest shopping periods of the season.
