  •  Not enough check out at my Wal-mart (3+ / 0-)

    I have a Wal-Mart within a mile from me. Last time I went it, I wanted a bike lock but they were out of the kind I wanted.  I was really thirsty so I bought a drink and one more small item. There was only one check out lane open. The self-checkout lanes were closed. There were 2 people in line with their cart full of stuff. There was no way I was going to wait over 20 plus minutes to be checked out for 2 items so I walked out. I'm lucky that I also have a Meijer within 2 miles of me so I do most of my shopping there. There are always plenty of check out lanes open.  I usually do my grocery shopping on Sunday afternoon and the parking lot  looks packed but I can always get in and get out. I live in a town of around150k people and we have 3 Wal-Marts in town. The one buy the mall is always packed. Forget about shopping there. If you do expect to walk over a mile to the store and spend over an hour to get your shopping done.
