It would bug you if I called you North Beach Persons. You would say "Just one person - not a crowd."

We call it "Wally World," but only in jest.

I call people who shop at Wal-Mart, "Walmartians". (Yes, I buy stuff there too!)

I have heard from an "insider' that it is now "Walmart" all one word, with a new splash logo. I am trying to adjust and leave the * out.
