Many People have passionate opinions about Wal - Mart; from the categorical negative impacts on small busines to the poor pay scale of their employees to customer expericances.

I never really spent much time thinking about Wal Marts because I have not really shopped at one in some time. I recently had a bizarre incident at the Local Wal Mart that I would like to share because as I tell this story to my friends, it seems like many have negative experiances or view points relative to Wal Mart.

To summarize my expericance; I bought my girlfriend a bicycle and a lock purchased from Walmart. We rode our bikes to the beach and on the way back, stopped back at Walmart to pick up snacks. I locked her bike at the bike racks Walmart provides at the front entrance of the store. After buying a lot of things from the store, I got back to the bike and the bike lock that I bought from Walmart was cut and the bike stolen.

I went to talk to the manager of the store and was treated so rudely and was publically embarrassed. They wouldnt call the police about the incident, instead called the police on me and also "Black Listed" me from all Walmarts in the whole country!!

What do you think?

I have nothing but disdain for that company for many reasons, but I doubt that it is official company policy of even a jackass outfit like Walmart to treat customers as you were treated. On the other hand, it doesn't surprise me that one of their representatives is a complete jerk. They seem to like that trait in their management personnel. Sorry that happened to you.

Thanks for your words...I have worked in Property Management for over a decade and the response to something as simple as a bike theft seemed to be too overwhelming for even the Store GM (General Manager). Even if the GM or anyone else at the store showed that they even cared a little bit or showed the slightest sympathy, I would have felt better about this situation. They actually saw me as an annoyance and booted me out of the store very harshly and refused to call the police or cooperate

They called the cops on me so calling the cops would have been an exercise in futility

Kind of a gigantic non-issue for us, we don't shop there and never have/never will work there.

The heels of my shoes bought from Walmart did not last long. I buy shoes from Kohl's after that.
