They are doing great. The only retailer that is really putting up a fight against Amazon. 2 day free shipping without a subscription plan, free grocery pick up, cheaper prices then any other brick and mortar including Costco and way ahead of the game with automation, AI, blockchain and other key technology

I’m always amazed when the subject is Walmart, what a trigger word it is.

Because those seven letters (and the optional asterisk) completely encapsulate almost every major fault of our socioeconomic system.

Good thing your opinion doesn't matter.

Never have claimed it does. But I'll stand by my statement anyway.

There is still demand for low prices. Walmart locations are probably convenient for most people, so it isn’t a huge burden for people to shop there. I believe they have same-day delivery(??) on many goods and also an in-store delivery program.

This chain is wonderful.

An American success story.

Target won me over with their cleaner store, built-in Starbucks, and the clientele seem to respect what's on the shelves a little more when picking up an item.

Success is the seven letter word they encapsulate. Some on the left do not want anyone to succeed.
