Totally agree I'm a Walmart *****. When I was young and naive, walmart was trailer trash, but now that I pay bills Wal-Mart is just so damn awsome.

Food there is uber cheap, we can fill an entire cart for like $120, I can fill like 1/3 a cart at Kroger for same price, plus at Kroger I almost always have to sack my own bags.

Plus they have all kinds of other stuff, tools, clothes (I don't require $150 outifts), movies, some music (some....). Plus other aroud the house stuff.


Also 24 hour operation = good.

SuperWalmarts are good, the regular kind are bleh

1. People believe its infringing on small business because they cannot compete with Wal-Mart's buying power, prices and convenience.

2. They treat their employees like crap, ie: draining them of life, firing them for fresh meat.

As far as #1 small businesses can compete by providing better service that outweighs a small difference in prices. I would rather buy something from somewhere that cares about me and will help me out then somewhere where all the employees are borderline retards.

my grandpa is 82, he works at walmart the past 5 years, before that was mcD's before that he worked at general motors for 30years and retired, its whats keeping him alive

they treat him like royalty at walmart, and i live with him so i get 10% off everything cuz of his employee discount, theres been several managers through our supercenter, every one bows down to him almost, anything he needs he gets, everybody in the town knows him, even people from other walmarts

That's business for you.
You can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

I love Walmart. I just don't buy clothing there besides socks and ****.

Wallmarts are fun at 3 am when you and a bunch of friends are completely bored. Anyone else use the motorized cripple-carts to race around the store and crash into each other? Good times....

I used to like Wallmart, but all the ones around here are trash piles. I'm not a fan of how they treat their employees either (like my best friend's ma), but business is business. Sam's Club is the **** though...600 pack of tp for $20...w00t!

Free enterprise. Wal Mart isn't doing anything illegal. We have anti trust laws in case they do.

Pro Walmart. I am well aware of the ripping effects of Walmart's dominance, but hey, I love capitalism.

If **** truly hits the fan, then the government can step in. Until then, let our free market be.

I just find humor in it. Perhaps other westcoasters will too.

I'm not a fan of sweat shops.

I shop at Woodman's for food, and Target, or on-line for clothes.

I do not like wal-mart, nor target nor K- Mart (tell 'em ray. K-MART SUCKS!)
I do not like going there. I feel sub-society. It is definietly not fun. I can't think of anything there that I can't get elsewhere that will be better quality. UGH

Theres a few walmarts in norcal as well if I can remember

I'm pro Walmart, almost flawless vision, strategy and execution thus far, the cornerstone of capitalism.
