So, I NEVER shop at Walmart because I think they are a big EVIL corporation. I feel they plant thereselves in small towns and cities and then proceed to suck up all the revenue from the local and small buisnesses, I have seen so many local shops go under because of this big corporate giant. BAD BAD BAD. LOL, now you know my opinion.. what do you all think of Walmart?

I shop at Walmart for one reason only. They have good prices. But what I hate hate hate about the Walmart in my area is that the store always seems so dirty. The isles are tight, two people with carts coming down the same isle in the opposite directions...look out! There's barely enough room to pass by each other. And there never ever seems to be enough registers open. What's the purpose of having 20 checkouts if you are only going to open 5 of them and make customers wait in long lines!

I agree with you, but in regard to how they treat their employees. I hate to say it, but I shop there because it's economically affordable for me and family. :( I shop other places too, not just WalMart exclusively, but I find better deals there. I love the pic of your baby by the way, just adorable! :)

I dont care for walmart either.They treat there employee's bad. I have two relatives who use to work for them. Now there involved in a lawsuite with them for making them work off the clock. There was a store in canada. The employees voted to go union just before it opened its doors. Walmart closed the doors and laid every one off before it even opened. the hole store was stocked and ready for the grand opening. but it didnt want the union involed. it would have meant better wages and insurance for the families.. I do not and will not in there stores.. I agree with you!

I agree with you %100!! They called me twice last week for an interview and I just couldn't doit...they hire you to work 32 hours weekly so that they don't have to offer health insurance and if you are so lucky to get some overtime you will get written up if your week adds up over 40 hours. Plus, they are ending lay away..How is this going to bebefit them?? It has to or they wouldn't be doing it..lol
