As a disabled shopper I use the electric carts at
Walmart. Recently I was at Stone Drive Walmart and called the store to ask for a cart to be brought out for me to use to do my shopping. After a while when no cart came, I called again and was told the store manager said the carts can not be taken out. I have been shopping Walmart for years and never been refused use of the motorized carts before. But if the store manager won't help us get in the store, how can we shop there?

I really don't see how it is the responsibility of Walmart or any other establishment to provide you with a cart. It might be nice but it is still not their responsibility. They are not there for you, they are there to make money. If you need a cart why would you not have your own? If you don't like their service don't shop there anymore. They will still make plenty of money and never know you didn't come in.

I'm also disabled. I hobble into the store with my cane and hope there's a cart available. One time there wasn't but the greeter called and another Walmart employee brought me one from the entrance at the opposite end of the store (as for me, I appreciated there help). The carts are a courtesy for our convenience but defiantly not a responsibility for them.

Here's an idea... Schedule an appointment and have a Walmart employee come pick you up at home. Maybe they should do your laundry and clean while they're there.

Hope your a good tipper...

How many over-weight people use these carts just to ride around in the store? I have seen some of these carts left in the parking lot when the sign says they are not to leave the store. Some people expect the world to do every wish they have and always have their hands held out for more. I call theis "milking the system" and they make it hard on those who really are in need of carts.

Here's why there is a problem: They don't have enough electric carts to go around and they will unfortunately never have enough. This is because of all the enfeebled individuals that mosey in from southwestern Virginia. If you notice, most Virginia drivers are handicapped one way or another -- as is most of their population. This influx of incapacitated Virginians overwhelms the system. If you are a Tennessee citizen with a legitimate disability, it is especially advisable for you to avoid the stores around the first of the month as all of the electric carts will be undoubtedly bogarted by swarms of SSDI-funded Southwest Virginians.

Well, I don't believe they have any obligation to provide you an electric cart, especially bring it out to you. I'm sorry if you have trouble and need one, maybe you should look into buying your own?

I think you should all be ashamed of yourself... We suppose to help people in need and not judge people.. Why would it have hurt for them to bring her a cart... Walmart and other establishments suppose to want our business... no one thinks they are obligated to do this but as a decent person that is what we suppose to do... I hope none of you ever need a helping hand.. come on people stop judging you never know a persons situation.....

There are as many disabled individuals in Tennessee as there are in Virginia. If they stop Virginians from going to Tennessee stores then it should apply vice-versa. Look at all the Tennesseans that grace the grocery stores and cigarette stores in Southwest Virginia. Dont be so whiney.

Your extreme left wing rant proves my point! Big government socialism straight from the heart of commie Virginia. No wonder this country is going down the drain one Virginian driven electric shopping cart at a time!!

Are you really disabled or are you another one of those immensely fat slobs that use the carts to get another load of taters instead of risking any actual exercise?

TAX PAYER (which by the way, so am I) is allowed to state an opinion but Im not? Sorry, free country,for now. First of all, VA is not sending anyone down the drain any faster than good ole DC. Here are some fun stats for you (Has nothing to do with shopping carts but indeed a comparison).
TENNESSEE: Overweight and Obesity Rate 59 %
VIRGINIA: Overweight and Obesity Rate 56.4 %
TENNESSEE: Oral health> Loss of natural teeth 32.2%
VIRGINIA: Oral health > Loss of natural teeth 19.3%
TENNESSEE: Total Spending on Medicaid $169,348.00
VIRGINIA: Total Spending on Medicaid $98,541.00
TENNESSEE: Population: 5,962,959
VIRGINIA: Population: 7,567,465

most of the time the only people that you see in a electric cart are fat-ass's that are too lazy to walk. people that are really disabled try not to use them if they can help it.

What gets me is that you will see two of them parked and talking and no one can get by and sometimes they will say, "I didn't know you wanted by."

I'm from SW VA and let me tell you why there are so many disabled people from this area, the coal mines has broken them down over the years to the point to where they can't stand up straight with back problems, can't walk 50 feet from having COPD and black lung from breathing coal dust. Sure there are alot of people who doesn't deserve to be on Disability, there's not a thing wrong with them, but that's true all over the country not just in SW VA.

Don't try to bamboozle everyone with your liberal bullcrap. Just like ALL liberals you can't tell the truth and simply MAKE up your "facts." Your from Virginia which is a blue state that went for Obummer. On top of that your probably on food stamps. Can't you see what you tax and spenders are doing to this country? The hate America crowd loves to attack Wal-mart. Crybabies!
