    You are correct.
    For sure, if the local Wal Mart people acted like you (and others) tell about, I wouldn't go to Wal Mart either.

    But honestly, in the many years I've shopped there, I can't remember one Wal Mart employee I wanted to hit. :)

    I don’t begrudge anyone shopping at wally world. I get so little from them that they will never miss my business. Their attitude of late makes my decision just that much easier.

    For sure.

    I can't compare to the Louisiana Coonass Gumbo they use to make on the Gulf of Mexico oil rigs, but as a friend use to say,
    "It will make a turd." :)

    I hate shopping at WalMart just becuase its WalMart, but when you live in a small town like I do the choices are limited on where to shop.

    I really just hate shoping in any store.

    Walmart is about a half mile from my house, I go there every week out of convenience. I can get virtually everything I need there. If I had better options I would use them.

    My biggest complaint is the damn store has about 20-25 registers and usually only 2 or 3 are open, no matter how busy they are. Always long lines. No excuse for that.

    For sure. Shopping is just a time wasting PITA to me.

    I think the only place I ever liked shopping is Gun Stores and Gun Shows.

    Well, that might have been an hallucination. At least, I hope it was.

    I pretty much have a choice between WalMart, Kroger, and Target.

    Oh and Sams Club, which is WalMart.

    'M2 obviously hasn't seen the South Park episode "Something Wall Mart This Way Comes" - else he'd know the full dangers to himself, his neighbors, and the surrounding businesses that occur whenever and wherever a Wall Mart(sic) pops up.

    (LOL)

    I run service calls for data networks at many different store brands including Walmart, so I see alot of them. The differences I see are location based. Same with Home Depot. More rural locations where owning a gun is a way of life and a Walmart job is a good job - the staff is more friendly and the stores are cleaner and better stocked. Urban locations have to have private security at the door and the inside is chaos. Too broad a brush to say all are the same.

    Walmart finds a new way to piss me off every time I go there. I've got to give them credit for that.

    Agree. This is America. Others have rights too, not just gun owners.
    1. There's no need to justify shopping at Wal-Mart or anywhere else solely due to politics or policies.
    B. This is America. Voting with your dollars works both ways. Wal-Mart knows that and is betting big $$ on America's Free Enterprise System.

    The only thing I buy at WalMart is at the WalMart Neighborhood Mkt. pharmacy.
    That's where I get my drugs. Other than that they don't sell anything other than groceries.

    Walmart has partnered with Bloomberg. That's a no go for me.

    I agree 100%. I’m not thrilled when we have to go, but we don’t have any other choice where we are. Our target and Kmart closed years ago. Ugh
    As much as I hate going there(menards also, lol), there is no other place where we can get what we want for the prices they offer. In most instances, there is no other place we can get what we actually need.

    If I don't go to Wal Mart I have to travel 70 or so miles to buy a pair of jeans. Yes, I'm a rural dweller, more pluses than minus's. I never did buy much ammunition there because I didn't feel like wasting time looking for a clerk that had the key's. I don't like their stand on firearms and ammunition, but for me to not go there is hurting me a lot more than them. As far as rude employee's go, who needs them? I pick out my own stuff and go to the self check out. Ammo's cheaper on line anyhow.

    I use Walmart when necessary. I have had some less than stellar experiences with the cashiers. Just recently I gave the cashier 3 coupons worth $3.50. I wasn't paying attention and neither was my wife (we were talking about where we were going after we left WM) and I did not notice until I got back home that the cashier did not scan any of the coupons. How hard can that be.... I just handed them to you!!

    I'm retired and have Humana for prescription insurance. I pay very little and also use mail order Humana for maintenace drugs.
