I have 2 Wal-Marts within an easy drive. Both are clean. the satff friendly. If your Wal-Mart is in an not to attractive area, the store will reflect that.

They just announce d another store openning several more miles away. That store will emoloy 450 people. For tose that deride Wal-mart, would you rather they NOT open and keep these people un-employed?

The pay is on par with the work done. If you think not go into any smaller store and ask what they are paid and other benefits.

Yeah that's one of the main reasons I prefer Wal-Mart over Target; the selection choices. But I realized I was comparing Super Wal-mart to Target. When I was living in NJ I preferred Super Target over Wal-0mart for the same reason. The Target near my house is expanding to become a Super Target so I'll check it out since it's closer and see if I like it.

As a general rule, I also find Walmart stores to be a war zone, and generally chaotic and frenzied. The Walmarts in this area are messy, disorganized,and provide you with the warmth and charm of a glacier.

I do prefer shopping at Target---cleaner, a little less chaotic, and the service is a little more corteous. Sometimes at Walmart you get the impression that you are infringing on the sales associates and customer service reps with your presence. The image of teamwork and family that Walmart enjoys promoting is not quite in touch with reality.

I dont enjoy shopping at supercenters---too impersonal---too disorganized---too uncaring. Yet if the choice is Walmart or Target----Target it is.
