The American Family Association called Target’s nationwide 10 percent discount on everything in its stores a “desperate” promotion as the retail giant faces a continued boycott over its bathroom policies amid declining sales.

“Desperate! Target is discounting everything to win shoppers back amid #BoycottTarget. Don’t be fooled, their dangerous policy still allows men into the same facilities as little girls. Help keep the boycott going strong,” AFA wrote in a Facebook message, referring to its petition, signed by over 1.4 million people, that pledges to boycott Target until the company reverses its policies that allows individuals who are born male to use women’s facilities, and vice versa.

Business Insider noted that the #TargetRunDay discount on Sunday came in the midst of financial troubles, with the chain store giant reporting its first quarterly traffic decline in more than two years last week.

The company announced last week that it will address the bathroom controversy by spending $20 million to build new unisex bathrooms in its 300 store locations in the U.S. that don’t already have one, to allow more privacy for customers. The AFA responded, however, by arguing that the move would not be enough to protect women and girls from potential male predators.
