yeah, well while your view of Wal-mart is "trash" mine is a "money saver" which, right now is what its all about - at least for me. you can trash Wal-mart all you want but when you can get great selection at the fraction of the price of the "upscale" stores, my vote is Wal-mart. I compare ALL OF MY PRICES because money right now is very important to me. Just the other day, I priced a ready made - frezzer to oven turkey @ Harris Teeter. Price:$14.99. I really wanted to have that for dinner over the weekend. could not bring myself to spend $15 on this item. Traveled to Wal-mart:$11.98. Wal-mart wins in my book!! yes, there are still a few things that I need to purchase @ H.T., but for the majority of my groceries, its Wal-mart all the way!

Did you apply online or at the store? I did the online app and haven't heard a word.

I detest Walmart.....they underpay their employees and cut their prices so much that small local owned businesses are forced to close. I have seen this happen in the town I grew up in where Walmart was the core of everything there. Slowly, the small businesses had to shut their doors and now people in that that town have to drive to another town just to rent a video. That Walmart literally sucked that town dry and then closed up shop and moved onto another profitable location. Now that parking lot is empty and with tumbleweeds like a bad western. I know this economy is bad but if we encourage the Walmarts out there to set up shop then we hurt our small business owners. I worry that the new Wallyworld will turn Apex into a ghost town.

Went there tonight. Nice, clean, standard super w-mart, and something never seen before and likley to be gone soon...every register was open with a cashier.

I am always amused by people who talk about products made in China and small businesses blah blah. Yes there are things I dislike about Walmart but I shop there. If I buy a bottle of Kraft dressing for $2 there is it any different then the $3.25 bottle from Kroger or Harris Teeter. Money still going out of area, employees paid about the same with the same or worse benefits. Yes fruits and vegetables should be bought at farmers markets, they will last longer, taste better, and be cheaper if in season. But many people that rant against Walmart shop at Whole Foods or the like. Well your money is going out of state and many of the organics you overpay for are produced by large companies that skirt the definition of 'organic'.
