    Re: Walmart

    Well Walmart is kinda my second home. lol

    It's the one place I end up doing most of my day to day shopping.

    However, there are far too many of them, and they keep getting bigger. Here there is constantly something on the news about one group or another wanting to keep a new Walmart from being built.

    Many times Walmart finds an area full of trees or such, and plows nature into oblivion. There is far too much over-building going on here, and places like Walmart just exacerbates the situation. I mean how many Walmart's does one area need?

    Walgreen's is almost as bad. We have 3 within a 1 street area. No joke, no exaggeration. There is one at one end of the street, one in the middle, and 1 at the other end of the street. Plus we have 6 gas stations, 3 banks, 8 churches (synagogues, etc), 4 auto garages, and 4 grocery stores. One of the grocery store is a Walmart grocery store. All this on a mile road!

    You know how it is though, once a Walmart moves in, the whole world comes with it. There goes nature! We have 4 Walmart's and 1 Walmart grocery store withing 10 minutes of our home.

    While a super-Walmart does offer a certain type of convenience, it has become a monster. Walmart once had good customer service, it now has close to the worse customer service (or lack there of) I have ever experienced!

    Plus they seem to be trying to become Target, or Boscov's. Walmart was always a store where you could go to find what you needed at a good price. Now their prices are going up, up, up. Then they start revamping them so they look more (what they feel is higher class) high class.

    I remember when K-mart tried this same sort of tactics. It lasted for some time, but now K-marts are shutting down all over. Eventually this will happen with Walmart as well. There are too many of them. There's convenience, and then there's smothering!

    walmart is almost like a mini mall. In a weird kinda way, it has all kinds of different things including restruants, really it is like a smaller version of a mall

    Walmart is a living thing it keep making you come back you it and spend your money and it is so cheap and good stuff you must shop at walmart. But no i think that walmart is great even though they need to get more manga and animes in the store.

    Re: Walmart

    I'm fine with walmart getting bigger. That just means that I don't have to look as hard to find items tha they could expand and start carrying. Though that will kill the fun of the hunt like looking for uncommon items in smaller stores. I don't believe they'll run to many people out of business and we all know that individual stores can still survive as long as malls exist and malls will never die people love adverturing through all the different stores to much.

    Seriously though, WalMart takes business from the smaller companies and eventually runs them out of town. Large coorporations can go without the extra cash, yet small business suffers all the time. I know a lot of stores that got closed down thanks to Wally World. I still shop there, when I have no choice, but I still think that they're evil.

    A friend of mine got fired from there and I swear she danced like there was no tomorrow! "I'm free!!" Is all you heard. LOL.

    Re: Walmart

    well wally world is very convenient food, electronics and clothes (not that I would ever buy those monstrosities lol) all at the same place lol >.< and while your shoping there you can have your car's tires rotated and your oil changed.
    one stop shopping is just what people who hate to shop need >.< and if the little mom and pop stores werent charging an arm and a leg for the same products they would have a better chance
    but really who cares if walmart takes over your town all you need is a computer and you can shop at any store in the world from your bedroom >.< lol
