Everyone should ALWAYS check the dates on anything they buy from this store! I found a package of meat that was two months out of date! I took it out and gave it to a guy that works in the meat dept. Told him it was out of date, he took it and walked away. No thank you, not one word. Pissed me off so i told a manager, but really doubt anything else was said or done about it. The store is filthy, dead flies in the coolers by the checkouts. Ive always hated going in there before this, but that was it for me. Going to schnucks from now on. Walmart used to be cheaper than other groc stores also, but unless you buy "great value" crap, its not anymore.

I was standing there talking to a friend a couple years when someone handed the meat manager a package of really green meat. He asked the manager, don't you guys ever inspect this stuff? I mean that package was rotten green!

I wonder if "pink slime" is out of the system yet?
I was told by a butcher at Schnucks that it would be several more weeks before pink slime was no longer in the hamburger chain.

I agree.. check the dates check the dates CHECK THE DATES!! The store policy is to "rotate stock". I can assure you, because I work there as a stocker, NOTHING is rotated. It's pushed to the back and filled to the front. VERY FEW of the employees actually check the dates on anything.
Birds in the store.. whatever, they fly in through the doors. Can't always stop that.
Dirty up by the front registers.. yeah.. that would be the over night cashiers who ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB. Because we ALL know there aren't THAT many customers in the store after midnight. There is NO REASON the front registers or anything up in front should be dirty. LAZY LAZY LAZY

Don't just check the dates on food, check it on all items. Pharmacy items,(over the counter) health and beauty products, dog and cat food.
Be a smart consumer, and you can still get the best prices in town.
OH!! One last thing.. don't go to the floor managers, that will get you NO WHERE. They will do absolutely NOTHING about your concern. Go to Gary Elders, he is the store manager. If it seems he's ignoring you, call the 800 number to Bentonville. I can pretty much guarantee Gary LOVES to hear from bentonville. ha ah ah

Cape store manager, Gary Elders is a royal jerk as is most of his management team. He does not listen to the customer and allows his managers to lie about the customer experience when a manager makes a mistake.
District managers email (if you can get passed gatekeeper Rita)--ggeichhorn (at) wal-mart (dot)com
Glenda Fleming-Willis, Walmart Regional General Manager for Eastern Missouri. Her assistant Jessica Horns is excellent. Email-- jmzorns (at) wal-mart (dot) com

perhaps you've never shopped at this particular walmart, however, the deli/meat department is packed DEEP in those bunkers. I mean really take a look. If you just keep piling it on, then the fresh is on the top and the old is on the bottom. IF those hotdogs or whatever, finally sell down, you get to the ugly meat at the bottom. And trust me, there is a lot of ugly going on in there.

If you really did see piss in the floor, that's gross, but to complain about birds in the store is dumb. I've seen it happen in a lot of big stores and warehouses....Sears Grand, Buchheit....people open the doors to come in and a bird flies in. It happens. Now, if the bird craps on your groceries, yeah, that's a good reason to complain, but it's not necessarily the store's fault.

Cape Walmart is the ultimate $hit hole! The cashiers are rude. The floor workers are clueless as to where certain items are. I observed a customer stealing one time, when I told an employee what I saw and pointed him out she just walked away and said "I can't do nothing about it". I overheard a manager bad mouth other employees to another employee, I found that really unprofessional. Yes the store smells like an outhouse. I never go there anymore. Jackson is somewhat better. At least the workers are nice to you when you have a question. Wish they had a deli though.

I wonder if that guy who hangs around the parking lot that's always $12 short of a car battery is still there?
