I went to the Concord Mills Walmart yesterday (Thursday) and I found it very different from the N. Tryon (especially the shoppers and employees). Seems to be the same layout as the NT one (food on left, household on right, electronics back middle), it also tells you on the front of the building which side you are walking into, the one NT does not. I also like the sitting area between the two entrances with the American Flags. Just seemed more open, bright (skylights). A much more pleasureable trip.

Do they have Count Chocula? The only place I have seen it in several years is at a Super WalMart in Rocky Mount, VA.

Not sure about Count Chocula, but a very good variety of ice cream, and frozen yogurt which if really love, but most local grocery stores don't carry a very large variety.

My husband and I checked out the new Walmart yesterday and were amazed at how different it was inside...unlike any other Walmart we'd seen. I liked how clean it was (naturally, because it's new) but didn't like the layout. Especially on the grocery side, we found that the non-uniform rows made it easy to miss an entire section. I like the simplicity of going up and down the aisles, not having to jut out to the side and then back to pick up where I left off.

Default Thoughts...

When I first moved here about five years ago, I used to go to University WalMart all the time...I was so naive I even went at night (Wasn't it open twenty-four hours then???)! Then I moved, and we started going to the nearest super center, the one on twenty-nine.

I was excited when I learned that CM would have a WalMart because the University WalMart was so ghetto I needed to have a handgun hidden in my pants not to mention a jack hammer to clean the sinks in the bathrooms before washing my hands.

The the faces of poverty are the shoppers at the one on twenty-nine not to mention the fact that most of the shoppers would be taken away if there were an immigration raid (seriously; don't mean it in the way some people will take it).

I really hope this one will stay clean, stocked, and that the people will be clean also!!!

The wife and I went to the one in Concord Mills last night. It was great, although I agree that the layout is very different. Still, the signage is better than "old" Wal-Marts, the aisles are nice and wide (although people still find ways to block them), and despite being fairly busy, checkout time was as good or better than the Harris Teeter.

As far as 'higher-end' in terms of product mix, I don't think there will be much difference (even though Walmart do alter their mix slightly, depending on which community they are in)

I think you are right, the WalMart in Tega Cay is nearly identical to the one in West Charlotte (Wilkinson Blvd). Yes I've been there and came out unscathed.
