Bad news. Just found out that my local SUPRA-Wal Mart will now begin selling AT&T Wireless...

Meaning I'm in charge of training and supporting the one in town. Neutral

I have always found Wal*Mart employees helpful, friendly, and very product informed.

Smells like pee. Oh, and there's other reasons but I've stated them 1,000 times already...

I wouldn't say the pee smell is typical of all wal-marts. And I've not heard them so state them again!!

Most Wal-Marts around here have pretty scary clientele AND workers in them.......but they have really good prices on some stuff so I suck it up and go on off hours.

ok,

I don't find them to be pro-community AT ALL. They opened up their stores on the outskirts of town...which immediately turns the area into a retail section. Then they decide to 'upgrade' and find another place on the outskirts and completely abandon the area they started leaving it to die. This happened in Oshkosh. Their new location now sits where a beautiful Christmas tree farm and some old Oak trees once sat.

Time and time again they've been slapped on the wrist for dropping their prices below legal limits. Our downtown is completely decimated because of them (Sure, targets, kmarts all guilty too...but wal mart smells like pee).

They don't use local contractors to build their stinkin stores.

Rambled thoughts brought to you by me..

Yeah, what is it about Walmart that attracts every outcast in town? My husband will not set foot in Walmart because, according to him, "There are too many fat ladies in stretch pants." I always seem to come across the lady beating the heck out of her kid sitting in the shopping cart.
