I'd rather spend more money and purchase things of quality than waste money on "cheap" goods there.

You are not really saving money if the quality is lacking.
Don't forget the fact that they are complete Slave-Drivers!!

Hate them. They sell crap & are bad for the economy in a multitude of ways. In short, the company with their business model is hurting America.

For the best part they sell the same stuff that other stores sell. I dont find their prices as good as some people think, our mom and pop grocery stores matches, and sometimes beats their prices.

I agree 100% and often find items cheaper elsewhere too. The price they gave us on generic pos tires was the same a local tire price gave us for Uniroyals (which included moutning, balancing, etc).

That is b/c after they drive their smaller competitors out of business by purchasing & pricing the inventory at rates that can't be matched, they then raise their prices sometimes even higher then normal. So now their purchase prices for inventory is lower then normal and their prices have now been raised b/c of lack of competition (that they eliminated). It is part of their business model.

My friend who works for wal-mart was told that if he or any other employee gets the free ketchup or mustard packets or any other condiment from the Subway thats inside the store then they will be fired for stealing.How can you steal something that is free,Wal-Mart is outrageous.


and most of their products are the same price as other stores,their meat is expensive and not of good quality.

I find WalMart to be fine. Perhaps not the "best" but, they usually have the products, and some services, that we use.

Price wise, again - some prices are great, other things they are on par with other stores.

WalMart tends to be a good neighbor - they re-invest in the community and help support lots of local activities - including schools, scouting, little league baseball etc.

I have absolutely no problem with WalMart

Wal-mart is the absolute best example of a wolf in sheeps clothing. Enough said.
