    PLEASE NEVER

    buy anything from Wal Mart. If you knew how they treat their suppliers. What they really think about the customers, plus how they treat employees you would PUKE. Wal Mart is not a nice corporation.

    But they are the only ones that carry 1 item I want. I have to go tomorrow, I am going to go in, get 10 of them, and walk out.

    But yeah, I hate walmart too, especially as a target shareholder.

    Hate to say it, but until someone can match their prices on some things, I will keep buying stuff. Should I never buy Nike products because their stuff is made with cheap labor?

    Re: PLEASE NEVER

    I just hate them because of how gross and dirty the stores are. Kind of represents the whole corp.

    It was about time for the yearly "I hate Wal-Mart. Don't every shop there!" thread.

    Re: PLEASE NEVER

    Is Wal-mart 'too big too fail' ? If your please-never campaign works, I want to know if our tax dollars are on the hook for the bailout if Wal-Mart is deemed 'too big too fail'....

    If you think Wal-mart stores are dumps, apparently you haven't been in a KMart lately...

    While I prefer Target, I frequent WalMart, KMart, and all the others.

    Re: PLEASE NEVER

    Ok... I'll pay more somewhere else for the same damn thing. I have plenty of money to burn

    I could care less right now when things are tight.

    Here is another one.... All packing plants in the US use illegal workers. Should I stop buying all meat unless I buy from a small town butcher?? No... I save more money buying products from the big companies like Tyson.

    I do go the butcher route from time to time when taking an individual animal in. But I can't afford to buy all my needs from them.

    Re: PLEASE NEVER

    I dont understand how Kmart stays alive. Walmart is for cheap things and Target is for kinda cheap things but go there cause you hate Walmart. Just dont see where Kmart fits in.

    Agreed. Target is my first choice, but if I need to go to Wally World for something, I'm going to go there.

    Re: PLEASE NEVER

    I am very selective of when I go to Wal Mart...not because of the corporation, but because of some of the really weird people that over take that place at certain hours. It's like a circus.

    I have to agree. KMart is becoming obsolete. I go occasionally, but it is dirtier than WalMart.

    And if you guys think the central Iowa WalMarts are dirty, you really need to check out some in urban areas...
