  •  It just cost me $50 more to buy a gift. (8+ / 0-)

    We are buying my dad a TV and Walmart has it for $50 cheaper. It is well worth it to me to spend another $50 rather than walk through the Walmart doors. I have not been in their store for 10 years!

    •  I have also finally pulled the plug (8+ / 0-)

      on Walmart.  I was always able to live in denial because I thought that it was more important to save the money (I was raised to be thrifty) but there are other costs involved.

      I stopped going when they converted the normal walmart in our town to a super walmart.  It is so strange to go in there because it is so clean, new, and beautiful yet everyone in the store, the management, the shoppers and the employees are just miserable.  It was suck a stark contrast.  

      Everyone should have the opportunity to shop at Costco.  The problem is that it is expensive to get started for some people.  I know because I couldn't afford a membership or to buy in bulk when I was slightly less poor than I am now.

        in NJ from opening superstores, we have strong grocery store chains who are unionized (except for Genaurdis, which is finally going out of business in my neighborhood, why pay higher prices when it's not for the good of the employees). I haven't been in our Walmart for over 10yrs., my sister worked there and I know how bad it is! But I was just informed that our Walmart actually expanded into a superstore without calling it a superstore, to get around our local restrictions. They are reprehensible.
