I love em.

I live in a small town and if it wasn't for Wal Mart, I would have to drive forever and waste gas and pay a whole bunch more money for my stuff.

I like Wal-Mart, but I don't love it. It's the cheapest place to get brand new clothes (other than Ross's which is other favorite). I just don't like certain customers that come in there. Some do not get out of the way when they see you are wanting to go through. I hate that crap.

In the book "The Walmart Effect" it describes the filth that the farm-raised salmon is, well, raised in, off the coast of Chile, all to keep the price of salmon low. After you read it, you won't buy farm-raised salmon again.

Then I started to wonder, how is the quality of their meat? Take a look at it. It has a glassy sheen to it. It makes me nervous.

I won't buy my groceries there, either. If Walmart is so concerned about saving a buck, do you really think they care about the quality of their food? Granted, their produce is better than it use to be, but that's because they were losing money when people didn't buy it.

I just don't trust a company that worries more about it's bottom line and it's quest to take over the world than the quality of its products.

If their clothing is crappy, do you think the food is any better?

Can't stand it. I only buy cat litter there because my cat prefers the brand they carry.lol The clientele sometimes is a little sketchy and I have had such a hard time with customer service the I stopped shopping there. I think they figure you will come back for the prices regardless of their service. Not me.............

I buy where I get the best prices whether it's walmart or not because I am not going to waste my money that I work so hard for.

No, I don't care for Walmart and I've heard that they don't treat their employees very well either. Here in the sticks though, choices are limited. We used to have Glens and Carters, but Carters went bankrupt so now there is only Glens , and one Walmart about 20 miles away. I like Miejer but the closest one is over an hour away. The next town over has a Sav A Lot and I shop for some things there.

Personally, I do not like them. I do not shop at WalMart unless I am visiting my friend in Arkansas. She and her husband live in a small town that really only has WalMart. I guess that once I retire and move down to Arkansas (near my friends) I will have to learn to like WalMart.

OH, NO YOU WON'T!!! We haven't darkened the door of any establishment the Walton family owns for years. We shop local merchants as often as we can and order from internet merchants for everything else. There are alternatives to "falling prices/wages/standard of living" EVERYWHERE in this great nation. Even in Arkansas!!!

There is only one Wal-Mart in my entire county here in New York and it's the smallest Wal-Mart I think there is on this Earth.

They don't sell food or anything of that sort.
