Unfortunately it would take millions more of you for Walmart to even care.....all they care about is profit.....and they're making it hand over fist....

agreed.  But i sleep better at night knowing people who appreciate my business are getting it.

        I would not only shop at Walmart, I would also continue to use coupons and order off the MacDonalds dollar menu. I don't see any reason to pay more unless I had to.

          I'd probably still shop there. Face it, they are everywhere. We have Supercenters here and we have Wal Mart Neighborhood Market, a grocery store they operate. They've put a lot of stores out of business, including some of the chain grocery stores. We also shop at Target.

          I try not to spend to much money, that's how I've always been. I just hate to spend money.

            I actually was looking for some new stuff for the bathroom - drinking glass, toothbrush holder, soap dispenser. I looked in many places but could only find expensive, ceramic/metal versions. Not good for a young child.

            I found exactly what I was looking for at Walmart - I was so happy, I went back and bought more for the other bathroom.

            Personally, I try to avoid Walmart - they always have 20 cash registers, but only 1 is open with 15 people in line. The amount of money I save is not proportionate to how long I have to wait in line. However, they are good for some items and heck yes, I want to save money too.

              Very true, much like they don't care about the negative impact their Super Center's have on small town businesses and "Mom & Pop" grocery stores. It would not be so bad if they would actually help get the local economy back up and running after they close down a non-profiting location. It's just ethical and would look very good on the corporate exec's.

              I prefer to get my groceries from HEB, they're also affordable, they have a good quality store brand and they don't use pink slime in their ground beef. I do shop at Wal-mart but that would definitely change if I could afford it, I'd much rather my money go to local and small businesses.

              Love HEB <3 Great store brand, decent prices, quality produce and meat, but best of all, great community member. Oh, and fresh made tortillas that are better than the other grocery stores in the area. 

              When they had the big wildfires here a couple years ago, HEB donated their mobile kitchen, manned and supplied to feed 1500 meals per day for the firefighters and volunteers. For 2 1/2 weeks the HEB mobile kitchen sat in Magnolia Tx, feeding those trying to fight the fires, at their own cost. Walmart brought in extra cots that people could BUY and donate for the firefighters to sleep on.

               

              Yes, I do shop at Walmart as there is one about 2 blocks from my home, but only for certain things. Their produce is usually good, and their K-cup name brands are priced better than other stores (I usually buy HEB Cafe Ole), but never Walmart for meat. Puke

              After a JP win? Maybe. There are things there I can't find at the other stores. TCBY frozen yogert for one. Banana

                Talking about meat from Walmart.....I just found out that they dont even cut their own meat...it comes precut and prewrapped from Cargill..or was it ConAgra?...I can't remember but it kinda threw me that they didn't even cut their own meats.....btw the way I found out was I asked them to cut a thick filet into two pieces and that's when the guy told me they didnt cut their own meat

                      I rarely shop at Wal-Mart as the lines are extreme and the fruits, meats and vegetables are lacking to put it mildly ...plus the closest one too me is in a bad part of town. I do know they have great prices on frozen foods, cereals and personal care product as that is pretty much all I buy if I visit one.

                      Publix is a mile away from my neighborhood which makes it nice but I still prefer Fresh Market or Whole Foods.

                            just seen a tv ad where wal-mart says they're going to start stocking more american made products,

                            if true maybe I'll give them another chance
