I call our Walmart, the pajama Walmart It's not really judging, just observation, sometimes you can't help but look, but I don't spend time wondering about their life and putting a "title" on them. I don't label them either.

It has to be by area because we have several WMs in the county I live in and have never seen any of these so-called trashy people.

Wal Mart is like the internet; it brings together a big mix of all kinds of people who would normally never associate, or come into contact with each other. Many of those people experience a bit of culture shock

Based on the amount of times I have seen it, it seems to me that Wal Mart had something to do with popularizing going out in public wearing dirty pajamas, slippers, with greasy bed-hair.

Sad part of pointing fingers at and judging others, some of those people may very well be some of the nicest and most genuine people one could ever meet, yet people would rather cast negative first, and all because of looks/dress/other.

Poor people are just less sophisticated than those with more money - Walmart is full of poor people looking to get buy - so don't expect to see kings and queens and the gentry wandering up and down the isles...it is what it is. Why worry about the "trashy" people- what does ithave to do with you?

Because Walmart has more poor people shopping there than pretty much anyplace in America outside of Kmart. Poor people are trashy in most cases.

I've seen the People of Walmart website. It does get the definite over the top folks. If it just showed the average middle class Walmart shopper, who would look at it? There are 2 Walmarts near me. I rarely see any of these pajama clad people in either of them ( I have noticed a few). Normally they are full of middle/upper class people. The parking lots have just as many, if not more, Mercedes, BMW's and Lexus' in the parking lot as I see beat up old pickups. I've have seen a CEO of a Fortune 500 company in Walmart. I know people that have seen NBA superstars in Walmart. Even rich people like to save money.

As for the difference in Walmart and Target. There are certain things I would probably go to Walmart for first, and other things I would definitely go to Target for. I don't think they are really trying to go for the same market share. I think Walmarts goal is to always be the cheapest at what they sell. Target tries to market themselves as a fashion forward, trend setting bargain.
