When I look for a "best" store, I'm looking for a place with friendly and helpful associates, a "thank you" at the end of the transaction, clean and uncluttered aisles, stocked shelves, and not a lot of loud noise.

When I think of a "worst" store, I'm talking about many rude or negative associates and customers (they can really feed off each other,) dirty and cluttered aisles, empty shelves, blaring music, dirty produce...you get the picture.

I went to one here in Omaha and when I pulled up shopping carts were all over the place. I went inside and me and a friend were buying notebooks and a refill of label tape. The asiles were cramped and crowded, and the store was loud and bleak with the high cement and steel ceilings. We got what we needed and brang it up to the cashier. Because I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart my friend was going to pay, and we started counting notebooks. I miscounted and tried to correct my friend's count as I re-counted. Then the cashier rudley told me that I was wrong. No smile, just a look of disgust on her face. She rang us up and we left without so much as a goodbye. SO GLAD I don't shop there.

I've never been to a great or even good Walmart; they all sucked (ive spoken like a true Target employee). One that really stands out in my mind is in Forest Park, Illinois....talk about nasty and rude

I've been to some sucky Wal-Marts, but they didn't seem any worse than the K-Marts or the Ames they replaced.

In my local area, the Wal-Marts are clean and well stocked. The original smaller Wal-Marts were pretty bad though, sort of like K-Mart and Ames..lol.

We don't have any Targets around here, the nearest one is 35 miles away so most residents in our city shop at the Wal-Mat Supercenter. I hate it there, the store is so bleak. Aisles have boxes for stocking etc. When ever I go to Target there so store is so inviting and smells great!

Target blows the doors off wal-mart any day!

Just watched the trailer. I already knew they sucked the life out of communities, but I didn't know about some other things. I will confirm them and then pass along the link.

Our WalMart is clean and good enough. But really, do you find helpful people, that you can actually locate while you are shopping anywhere these days? Good customer service is dying out everywhere!

All the WalMart's in pur area are neat, clean and have very helpful employee's. Oh, and they didn't put any Mom N Pop stores out of business either.
