    Please do not trash this one and make it a rehash of the most infamous Wal*Mart store in the entire company. We all know which one I’m referring to.

    I wish the Samn thing would open at all !! Didn’t want it out here anyway, BUT Wal – Fart buys their way into every community.

    Cool, another outlet for inferior Chinese goods! Actually, it’s not totally the Chinese that are at fault. WalMart sets a price point for goods they sell. The company providing the goods to WalMart has to keep their costs down to maintain their profit margin. To keep costs under control, most look overseas for cheap labor and material costs. So, it all begins and ends in Bentonville Arkansas. I just thought you’d like to know who to thank for that shirt that falls apart after two washings.

    Eh, I’m over the whole “Wal*Mart is evil” and “Sells cheap non-American made goods” lines. Some of it may be true, but iif there are good deals, you’re going there. You know that and I know that. In this economy we can’t be choosey.

    I’m focusing on the fact that the most infamous Wal*Mart in the company is right up the road from where this one will be.

      MAY be true?? You REALLY need to wake up! Sure, I shop at WalMart just like everyone else, when I have to, but I don’t have my head buried in the sand my complacent friend! Support the small local retailers whenever you get a chance. They’re your friends and neighbors, not WalMart!

  5. The Truth says:

    If they’re your friends, you shouldn’t be shopping at Wal*Mart at all. You’re betraying them. Some friend you are. My friends and neighbors realize that these days you have to shop at discounters in order to survive. Your head isn’t buried in the sand, just the money hoard you must have in the bank.

    Care to share? Your socialist president is pushing us towards that, why not write me a check now and help him fulfill his dreams?
