Is it in Concord Mills or the one that is going to be on Derita Rd? There is also a new one on N. Tryon, has anyone been in that one?

The one on N. Tryon, I'm sad to say, has already been converted back into it's successor. Same clientele, same employees. To top it off, it seems as though WalMart is trying out a new strategy or something with the store. Far fewer selections of products...wayyy fewer.

There is just a little bit of hope that the Concord WalMart will hold out from becoming a crap hole like a lot of others do.

When you have companies like Walmart and McDonalds opening up new locations and hiring people for low wages, this is a true indication of where our country is going. Im telling everyone to wake up and look at the current events. Just remember current events form future trends. I have a feeling that America will never be the way it was.

It's not already. No need to wait and find out. Just look outside right here today!

Why do you think I just bought the Band of Brothers DVD's last month? To show my kid how people used to be!

Well maybe if people would work hard, get an education, and try to better themselves, WM and MCD wouldn't have any perspective employees? But...people would rather have a good time taking the free ride through life. Its even easier when Uncle Sam pays your tool on the road of life.

Blame WM and MCD? No way...blame the morons who put themselves in a position for a McJob life. Life is full of choices. Should we play the blame WM and MCD if people make the wrong choices in life?

Last time I checked this was still the "land of opportunity". If you let the "opportunity" pass you by, that's your own fault. And yes, I will have fries with that!

WalMart and McDonald's are supposed to be starter jobs that few progress into and become managers. that's it. Nothing more. As uber said, it's the people who shoot only as high as front end money taker at a WalMart for their highest potential in life that bring themselves down. As far as bringing the whole country down? Nah. There are still plenty of teachers, engineers, lawyers, doctors, bankers, and yes, even construction workers right here in America. We'll be ok.
