Wal-Mart sucks!!!
Meijer rocks!!!
The wonderful people at Meijer are so friendly, while the old bi**hes at Wal-Mart make my visit uncomfortable... Also, whenever I walk into a Wal-Mart, they never have anything that I need.

I shop both. I like Meijer, but some things are just too much more expensive. I can't afford to buy everything there. Besides, Wal-mart is employing Michigan workers too, so some of the money is staying here. And not everything sold at Meijer is "made in Michigan" so that doesn't necessarily keep the money here either. I know that corporate wise it does, but then we could get into the issues of investments, donations, etc. Anyway, I think most people would like to keep as much money in Michigan as possible, but at the same time, they are probably even more interested in keeping as much money in their own pockets as possible.

You can always tell you're in a Walmart parking lot by all the empty oil cans laying around.

For some reason I always felt the need to take a shower after visiting a WalMart the 3 or 4 times in my life.

As a consumer, I'm not going to act pretentious - I'm going to appreciate what the competition does for prices.

Meijer's level of service has dropped considerably over the last several years. I really don't see how Wal Mart can be any worse. I grocery shop in the evening and my average wait time to check out is 20-25 minutes. That is after I have spent another 30 minutes trying to find someone who can check to see if they have the product on sale I came in for, 9 times out of 10 they don't. So really how can Wal Mart be any worse?

I really enjoy shopping at Wal-Mart. Now that we have 2 Wal-Mart Supercenters in the Muskegon area, I am even happier. I also look forward to the ongoing construction at the Meijer on Norton Ave. in Norton Shores. It will be neat to see the store literally change directions. I want to go to the new Wal-Mart Supercenter to see how it is.

I shop both, as well as other chains (Target, K Mart, etc.). I will go where I get the best price. In today's economy, I watch my pennies pretty closely.

Walmart employs more people than Meijer does, and they make more money hourly than the Meijer associate. I am with Gail from Wyoming, I will go where the best price is. I shop around for everything.

What do you think of all of the trouble Meijer is having in Acme? Do you think they did wrong or did Acme do wrong?

Like others, I go where my dollar stretches the furthest. And I LOVE the Walmart in Greenville. I've always gotten help right away, I've never had to be in line for over 15 minutes, and I always find what I need. They actually let you put things on lay-away anytime of the year, too. UNLIKE Meijer.

I find Meijer to be more expensive than my local Leppinks. Meat prices are way high. Their produce is second to none though Family Fare in Cedar does an excellent job.
