We have two choices Quality or Walmart. Quality wants 1.99 for a Banquet Dinner, Walmart wants $1.10. Shop both stores because one week Walmart is have a product and the next it will not. The cheese we but is 3.99 at Walmart and 5.49 at Quality, however they were out of stock (Walmart) for 6 weeks. It seems Walmart never keep that many major brands, and Quality carries mostly their store brands. Both business's need more cashiers, Walmart if you buy groceries you have to keep heading West till you find an open cashier. Why don't they just get rid of the check outs in the middle of the stores. I will gladly pay $2.00 more per visit if Berkotts reopen.

I don't care about their religion as long as there products are quality and their employees helpful. Unfortunately they're not. I found expired (and warm) cheese in their cooler last week. I took it to the nearest employee but she was too busy flirting with a male employee (with exposed tatoos, very professional) to bother helping me. I think that they were both supervisors to. Expired food, empty shelves, and unprofessional employees. Filthy as it was, I think that the old store was better. I am doing my grocery shopping in Champaign from now on.

What's killing this town is the incompetence of our public officials from the mayor on down. How many tax breaks have been given to companies to build here? I seem to recall a hotel chain that was supposed to open behind the old Wal-Mart several years ago, and lets not forget about all of the money that our city officials have spent on T&D and they have yet to rebuild the section of their facility that burned down. How many years ago was that? Admittedly I was out of town at college at the time, but I still remember reading about our town's generosity to these companies in the Times-Republic. What have we gotten for our hard earned city tax dollars? Not a thing. Oh, that's right. We got the Super Wal-Mart and a host of corrupt city and county officials whose jobs are more about a popularity contest than actually serving the interests of the local municipalities. I would say that this town didn't need a super Wal-Mart, but that is not even what we got from Wal-Mart. What we got is a slightly bigger regular store that directly or indirectly let to the closing of Berkots and to our town losing what was about the best deli that we had.
If everyone hates Walmart so bad and doesn't shop there, why did Berkots close??? Seems like the lot is always full at Walmart

The parking lot is full of EMPLOYEES, not shoppers. Berkots closure had no connection with WalMart. Just ask the Berkot's owner or the other renters in that plaza. It had to do with greed. If WalMart wasn't so threatened by Berkot's great success here in Watseka, why did they pay another near year of rent AFTER they moved out, making it impossible for anyone else to come in there?

But you are exactly on spot with your statement.....

EVERYONE HATES WALMART SO BAD AND DOESN'T SHOP THERE!!! To be fair (a term WalMart knows nothing about), it may not be every single person, but the vast majority of people refuse to shop there and don't like it.

Keep it up boycotters...keep shopping elsewhere. We do NOT want WalMart, its anti-American, anti-union, anti-employee fairness stances. And we certainly don't like its criminal management.

We would welcome Berkot's back in a heartbeat!

I hate the watseka walmart. Everytime I go in there, there are skids of random stuff in the aisles, nothing is stocked and the food is never rotated. I've had to take meat back twice because I open the package and its rotten. And the date says its still good. The lines are ridiculous and slow. Almost everytime I go just to get one thing I need they never have it. The prices are a rip off. I try to go to kankakee to do my shopping but sometimes that's not an option. They are open 24/7 so I don't undertand why they can't stock shelves at night when no one is there? Instead they wait until its busy and in the way of everyone. Hate it hate it hate it!

Like the bakery, too. It is bright and spacious. Not as overwhelming as the store in K3. Love the hours so I can shop before work. Glad Watseka got the new store.
What bakery?..there isn't one..unless u are talking abt a rack of baked goods that aren't made there...clearly u have no idea what a bakery is

Not Gala flirting with Tatoo. The other one, lol. I see them sitting out in his minivan "talking" when I leave in the mornings. Every morning. Wally World drama. Gotta love it. Worse here than in Kankakee.

Thought that this thread had died, just like Wal-Marts ability to keep food fresh and in stock. Shopping last week, all I saw on the grocery side of the store was empty milk slots and soft vegetables. Who cares what employees are swapping spit, or whatever? I just want them to do there jobs when they are in the store. Forget the high school crap, put away the cell phones, and wait on your customers.

We really don't want people here that aren't interested in making the town a better place to live and supporting local hometown businesses.
Truly, if you aren't happy with what Watseka offers, just leave. It would be better for everyone.
Yes get rid of capers nothing in it lolololololol junk hole

Someone must have seen your post because there parking at the other end of the lot now. "oh, they can't see us over here." Lmfao. If you want to complain about something complain about the last round of promotions. Another friend of the store manager, a kid with no experience, and somebody from kkk because nobody here was GOOD ENOUGH to deserve a promotion. Same old, same old.

I use to live in watseka talk bout that place going to shit now.. Don't judge K3 unless you actually lived or live here.. So get off your high horse and except the fact your watseka wal-mart sucks!!! Lol

The most of us here know this already. We didn't ask for "junkmart" and its crappy store manager and corporation. And we don't want them. So, the best of us (which is much of the area here) do NOT shop there. Bravo!

News we already knew, but sweet to confirm again!

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-03-26/cust...

Last month, Wal-Mart placed last among department and discount stores in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, the sixth year in a row the company had either tied or taken the last spot.
