Yep, totally agree. But you forgot that they need happy, respected, and well-compensated CITIZENS to get customers. Even if they were fair to the employees, they would not have my business because they don't respect or treat fairly people outside the store. If they refuse to respect and treat all people with fairness, they are not going to get the business from patrons.

The title is this -
"Consumer Reports ranks Wal-Mart at the bottom.
Wal-Mart: Crappy stuff when you buy it. Crappy experience when you try to return it."

Those are Consumer Reports quoted words. I just happen to agree.
I will not shop at WalMart. They hurt our economy, wallets, and confidence in American pride.
Totally agree with this.

I shop there once in awhile because it's close to home, but most of the observations posted here are correct. Poorly stocked and out of date grocery, long lines, a cluttered register area, unfriendly employees, and unhelpful management. It's particularly bad in pharmacy where the lines are longer than in the old store and almost everyone is impatient with customers.

So, worst areas in the store? I vote for the produce area, followed by the registers and the pharmacy.

Long lines up front, rude service in pharma, and lousy stock in fruits and vegetables. But, ever tried to get service in electronics after 11? I vote for electronics as the worst area in the store.

Fruits and vegetables is the worst area. The stock is almost always low and the employees unhelpful. The short woman with bad teeth who works over there is unfriendly when I ask for help but seems to flirt with every man who comes through, when she's not running to her break. If this is typical of their employees then it explains alot. The best area is appliances. The woman who works that area has ALWAYS been friendly and helpful.

Bitter,disgruntled ex employees are the only ones posting the bad stuff. I love having a bigger store close to home. Its not a Super Center BTW...its just a larger store that is open 24hrs(for now)

Really...Aldi's,Dollar General,Quality....I see a pattern. FOOD STAMPS! You're probably spending my tax money at those stores. The merchandise at those stores comes from secondary food producers. You are buying less than top quality food for your family. Cheap,no-name,generic,tasteles s,bottom of the barrel type food. I'll stick with Walmart...you can continue to waste "your" money on those inferior places.hahahahaha..glad I saw thru it....

I truly like the new store.. Due to the closed minded fools & those idiots that are set in there ways- they loved the ugly, filthy old store.
Nothing about the old store was welcoming. It was disgusting & the entire store looked like a flee market.
At least the new store has a fresher, cleaner appliance.
If you cannot be happy with what you have than leave. Everyone on this page has nothing better to do than complain.
If you do not like the way things are changing....just go where they do not care that you complain, the nearest cemetery! RIP!

"Due to the closed minded fools & those idiots that are set in there ways- they loved the ugly, filthy old store." My grandmother used to say that it takes one to know one. Could we try to be at least a little polite here. The new store is neither fresher nor cleaner. It is simply different and since it already seems to leak it will not take long for the new store to get dirty. Plus, ALL Walmarts bear a disturbing resemblence to flea markets.

They do look like flea markets. It's all of the front end clutter. Worst area in the store? Pharmacy. You wait forever for service there. The produce area has an abysmal selection, so it's a tie.

They look like flea markets because Walmarts are the trailer parks of big box retailers. Or bars. The first thing that you see when you walk into this one is a giant display of beer. Classy? Nope. Catering to the trailer park set? Oh, yeah. As for the pharmacy, I walked off without my medication today because I grew tired of waiting.

If you look at the displays, beer seems to be the number one thing that Walmart is pushing. No real deli. No real bakery. Lousy produce selection. Long lines and unfriendly employees. BUT THEY HAVE BEER, DAMN IT!!!

Because it's a liquer store now, only liquer stores usually have shorter lines.

Longer lines don't necessarily equal more customers. They could just as easily indicate a less efficient process of processing the same number of customers i.e. fewer cashiers or cashiers improperly trained in the use of a newer register set up. Also, the old store DID sell alcohol, but it was less prominently displayed over there. In the new one it seems to be the focus. I am glad that you like the new store, though.

They desperately need to fix customer service in the pharmacy. I would really like to pick up my prescriptions in under 10 minutes just once.
