Days? I want to know what they pay those guys who drive the little carts in the parking lots for, or have they discontinued that 'security' measure too so that the profits rise a bit more.

That is exactly why I don't shop at Wal-Mart. I'd rather spend the extra couple buck at Target and shop with a better socio-economic class of people.
I agree with you. It's just too dangerous around this particular Wal-mart especially at night. But the nearest Target to this place is almost as bad and it's getting worse as well.

I agree with your comment completly! And I dont understand why they go around and notice the same car parked in the parking lot! The gentleman that they found was my uncle. Something should be said to Wal-Mart about their policy about this!

Heard they found a bunch of parking lot fliers on the windshield too. Welcome to Wal-merica

Well, this is my story.
Osteen WalMart has an old lady security guard who follows you around in the vegetable department. Everyone has seen those "security vehicles" in the parking lots supposedly "for their customer's safety." St. Cloud WalMart was recently evacuated. East Colonial WalMart had a decomposing body in the parking lot,(where was "security"?) And I just heard that in another WalMart, two women had filed a complaint regarding someone stalking them. Looks like it's not turning out to be a good year for WalMart. I guess it's true what they say, What goes up, must come down.
Eww

Look at everything - where they are made - in Target. Everything made in Target is made in Asia (primarily China) or India. The only difference between Target and WalMart is that WallyWorld charges less. For instance, a couple years ago, I bought a bedsheet set from Target, mainly because color was the priority. It was made of American cotton (400 threadcount, whatever that means), woven in Pakistan, and packaged in China. Even LINCOLN LOGS are now made in China and sold at both stores!

I believe it's the superstore on Colonial near Alafaya. I can't think of another Walmart on Colonial in that part of town.

Are people truely going to rely on Wal Mart security when something goes wrong in the parking lot? The guy in that security vehicle is 90 years old for crying out loud. The best that you can hope for when you're mugged at Wal Mart, is that the security guy might hear your screams and call the real police.

This is ridiculous ...how can a man decompose at Wal-Mart. For some those are not familiar with that area... That Wal-Mart sadly is like a meeting place...everyone is always there 24 hrs a day regardless of store hours...Which I believe are 24 hrs anyway. But regardless it is amazing that society today can totally ignore the obvious! I have gone to Wal-Mart at 3 in the morning and saw people that I have not seen in years….I am sorry but I can’t get over the amount of selfish self centered people there are in this world. I am a New Yorker so everyone knows that we are considered to be in our own world at times, but really I would have never walked by a specious car, and especially if I was a worker. It is scaring that we are consider the best country in the world, because honestly how our society is going …state your own opinion I have mine!

I remember about a year ago a converstaion I had with a walmart employee(JY and Sandlake) about some cars that looked abandoned. He said one in particular had been sitting in the same spot for over a year. I wonders whats in the trunk of that one?

Everyone... someone lost a life here and all you can talk about is WalMart and their employees?
Racism still exists in this sad nation. It's just too bad the majority is uneasy about becoming the minority. We're here to stay.
