I live in a community of 100,000 people and there are THREE super Wal-Marts within a six mile radius of eachother. And the sad part about it is that alot of the local shops have ceased to exhist because of the spread of these mega-hyper-super marts. If my bank werent there, I'd never go to the place at all (and I'm thinking of switching banks....like soon.)
The food has gone down in quality and up in price. Most of the clothing I would not be caught dead in, and it's cheaper to buy the movies at Hastings and get electronics from Half.com.
The only ones we have to blame are ourselves, and our want for everything under one space, nevermind quality, freshness, true value and friendly, efficient service. Lines at the place cans stretch to the clothing aisles because they refuse to hire sufficient staff. And the staff they have is not that congenial. If I get out of there with a look in the eyes in the miracle.
Bottom line, we want to change it, complain. Or shop somewhere else.
Personally, I shop at the Mercado El Monterey down the street. Good meat market prices and hommade tortillas & tamales. Frag Wal-Mart!
