<quoted text>Actually what happened is K-mart sold some of their stores to Sears at quite the price. Sears then went into bankruptcy and K-mart bought out the entirety of the Sears chain. K-mart owns Sears. Google it....:)
That's not right, that's just not right...i always figured Sears was superior to Kmart...

Kmart owning Sears is like Hyandi auto, owning Lexus...

Wow...that's just not right...

Well I just got back from shopping at Walmart...

Spent about $90.00 on various items...from cosmetics to clothing...

For the most part I had no problems or issues...

Accept for one lady employee, hauling or pulling a stock cart like an ox...

They almost ran me over...so I said 'Excuse me'...and they said nothing (typical)...

So I repeated myself...'Excuse me'...

And they blurted out 'ah hu'....without acknowledging my manners...

So I mocked them, out loud...by replicating their response and behavior in a very sarcastic manner...

To make them aware how slothy their behvior was towards me...

But other than that...my experience was decent...

No greeters to wreck my shopping experience...

Living in the South East...which I am not native to, is a challenge in the winter time...

Cause you go out and buy winter clothing...and then only need it for maybe 20-30 days through out the year...

Up in the Pacific North West...where grizzly bears and Mountains reign...winter is winter...

You don't have freezing cold weather one day, then beach weather the next...makes seasonal shopping a lot easier...

Did they 'stop and frisk' when you left the store?

Your weather has no manners, maybe you should start a thread about your outrage over that.

this woman was not poor or wretched...and looked pretty fit to me...physically fit that is...

But was obviously mentally unfit for that position...

They know not to bother me there...cause I demand exellent treatment when I shop...as you should...

I think I know the problem and have a possible solution. First rule of shopping for clothing and cosmetics, do not shop at Walmart. Unless you want to look like Tammy Faye Baker wearing a poodle sweatshirt, jeggings and fake uggs. Bad form. The staff is a reflection of the customers.

Solution, buy your cosmetics from the source. Most good cosmetics companies have their own stores, like MAC, or sell only cosmetics like Sephora. Some Department stores have great service at the Makeup counters like Bergdorf's and Bloomingdales. People who work at these types of places are experts in the products they sell

Now on to clothing. NO NEVER WALMART. Check out the small boutiques and vintage clothing stores (my favourite) in your city and/or town. They are eager to please and the ones I shop in serve espresso and cocktails while you're shopping. Some of the higher end department stores are acceptable, like Neiman's, Holt Renfrew, Barney's Bergdorf's etc..

The treatment you want is out there, the onus is on you to find it. Take responsibility and be a smart consumer. Don't continue to return to a place that is sub par.

Well, as more and more people are forced to shop at wal mart, we can look toward Washington DC for guidance - Obama just used executive order to give himself and everyone in congress a pay raise.

I love the irony of it all as probably three-quarters of those who shop at Wal-Mart are Obama voters.

You're rude...

And your posts reflect that...

You lack class and would be out of place in a high end resturant...

You need training my dear...

Thanks for the advice...

The small boutique or specialty stores are hard to find in larger metropolitan areas...

I think a lot of those places find it easier to sell online...

But when I use to drive through the rural landscape of like Pennsylvania...you'd see those shops everywhere...

The places where small towns like to rehab the historic building of downtown...and turn them into shops...that old time feel...

Like those old brick store front buildings...where back in the day the second floor was an apartment...

http://imageserver.quinstreet.com/content/one...

Like places like this, in the link...a photo of those old style type of store fronts...

It's been so long since I've walked into a place like that...

Large metropolitan areas are just about the only places you'll find smaller boutique stores worth shopping in.

I use Wal Mart for grocery shopping late at night, seems to work well for me.
