    Hate It But Have to

    Unfortunately you almost have to go there because of how the WalMart corporation has destroyed the local economy.  They have driven small businesses out and make you dependent of them to sell what you need.  I wish they made it a law that they would have to disclose how...

    Oh, to Live In a Small Town....

    About ten years ago, it was a different story.  There were all kinds of local/family owned businesses, and a great variety at that.  As soon as the plans to build Wal-Mart had been approved, the death bells slowly began to ring. Over the years, everything eventually...

    Wal-mart

     The main reason why I hate Wal-Mart is not because of the evils things they do to get their prices so low. But because they don't have enough variety. They only have the products that the masses buy. Look and they don't have some of the flavors. Also, many of their...

    I Don't Shop There Anymore.

    It seems to me that if we believe in people lifting themselves up, then we cannot support the companies that keep people down. I will not support Walmart by spending money there as long as they treat their employees so badly.  I guess I came to this site because I was...

    Yeah, I Shop There

    Much to my dismay, I shop at this dreaded store. Even if I go to the other markets I always end up at Wal Mart having to get something that the other stores sell for way too much. The bad thing about shopping at WM is that I can never make it out of there with less than 100...

    Small Town

    When I'm at home, I never set foot in Walmart. But it's not that hard to do, since my family lives in Suburbia, USA, and we have just about every chain store in existence. But at college? It's not so easy. All we have here is Walmart; the town's just that small. We're about an...

    I Had To...there Was Nowhere Else to Go!!

    I have always hated Walmart because it was always overstuffed with crap and poorly organized...stuff just lying around everywhere. Well, I went to college in a small town.  My freshmen year I did not have a car.  This town had a Kroger...and a Walmart.  Thus, I...

    Not So Much Now

    When we lived in hell (aka central Florida) we didn't have too much of choice.  Yes, there was a Target (which I have always preferred, for many reasons) but it was small and somewhat limited.  For baby items, in particular, I found myself at Wal-Mart.  For some...

    Bum Bum!!

    Here in England, I'm pretty sure the equivalent would be Asda, it's part of the Walmart family, so I'm guessing it's the same in that way!! I'm just sad the got rid of the cool adverts they used to have. 'It's Asda price, bum bum!!' With people hitting their bums on the bum bum...

    Close Them Down

    Walmart use to advertise "buy american". They dont do that now. As much as we dont like Walmart, there are some things you have to get there. The towns and cities that refuse to let them in are smart.They are a blight upon any community. Kill small businesses anywhere they open...
