No I do not.

Not because of your link though.


This is why I don"t shop there

Walmart's low-wage workers cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $6.2 billion
in public assistance including food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing.

This poor woman probably doesn't know about the hidden tunnels under Wal-Marts that lead to FEMA camps either .....

When I was working in the US we used to spend a lot of money in Walmart, but when time passes we started going to the local shops spending HUGE amount of money for hardwear shopping to support the local economy, not just another multi billion cooperation.... ( This is before and after Catrina )

I hate to shop there but it saves me enough money that I'd be crazy not to. I work hard for my money and expect to get the best product for the best price possible and I do regularly spend a bit more for quality over just being cheap but take this example.....

My family and I were heading out for a fun evening/night at six flags a week ago. I needed a can of rattle paint for a project the next day and knew I would not want to stop on the way home, nor since I live out in a very rural area would I want to take an hour + round trip in the morning just for paint so I'll stop on the way out. To make things quick and easy I figured I would just stop at Advanced Auto so I paid 7.00 for a can ...oh well it didn't mess with family fun night. 2 days later I grabbed another can of the exact same paint from Wally World for about 3.50. That is just one example.

If money was not on a budget and of no concern I would spend all of it at private/personally owned businesses but being a so called middle class family it does save me a lot of money to spend on other things for the family. Not proud shopping there but.............

We shop very rarely at Walmart because the atmosphere, the products offered, the quality (especially the produce which we consume in large amounts), and the other shoppers tend to make us feel too low class at Walmart. However, we routinely shop at Sams Club.
