Here's an idea, someone should make a Wal-Mart Edition Monopoly game.  Hehehe.  All of the spaces will be overridden department stores.

I posted this just before the old website crashed...  Wal-Mart has stores in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, UK (with ASDA), Argentina and Korea...

But there is a chain in Australia called BIG W, it started as Woolworths but not the F.W.Woolworth.  They have slogans like WE SELL FOR LESS anr other things... see for yourself:

As part of an ogoing effort to improve its public image and combat criticism of company labor practices, Wal-Mart on Thursday bought full-page advertisments in more than 100 newspapers across the country.
"For too long, others have had free rein to say things about our company that just aren't true," Wal-Mart ceo Lee Scott said. "We've decided it's time to draw our own line in the sand."

Also on Thursday, the company launched a non-commercial Web site, www.walmartfacts.com, to help its associates, consumers, reporters and others learn about the company. - DSN Retailing Today - Jan. 13 2005

I've tried to make Wal-Mart seem like a good store and keep defending it. But today, I realized I was wrong. My mom sister and myself went for things. They finally cleaned up the mess of merchandise all over the floor. Anyways, there was one register open that took more than 10 items. It was the cashier that had an attitude. She was complaining that there were too many people shopping on Sunday, and they shouldn't be buying so many things. She kept complaining to my mom on and on and made her nervous, and shocked. The customer in front of her told this cashier he hopes she has a better day. Anyways then she says, "I don't care if they fire me, I just can't believe this." Come on stupid woman, it's a store and as many people can go the store if they want, and they can buy as much as they want, no matter what day it is. Then, the cashier manager is yelling at the customers to go to Customer Service if you have 10 items or less. I sware everyone in that line had over 10 items, and the manager kept yelling at everyone. Then his fat hippo cashier that we can't stand either, opens another register and is like "Come on" to the other people, talking to them if they were animals. My mom is reporting the cashier we had to the store, if they even care. No cashier should complain about his/her job to customers, etc. That store has gotten worse every year ever since it opened in 2001. I told my mom that Ames never had a bad cashier in their store ever, neither does Target. They're all friendly, which is part of their job. Wal-Mart can shove it. I dare know what Sam Walton would think of his Wal-Mart. He should of stuck with Sam's Club!! Also, while Ames across the street closed and is being re-occupied, and Bradlees was filled with Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart should be friendly down to heaven. Sorry if I was too graphic or long!!

AMES FOREVER! NEWINGTON STILL MISSES YOU!

I predict wal-mart will be gone or reduced significantly (hopefully before putting everyone else out) within the next 20 years. Wal-Mart is overexpanding greatly, plus they are sunk if China or any of those countries gets involved in some sort of war.

In southwestern PA we didn't experience a Walmart or a Wally-World boom until a few years ago. Prior to that the closest Walmart was about an hour away, and i thought it a was an amazing store. Over the next few years I saw local towns all but shut down due to their monopoly. The service is HORRIBLE, the stores un-shoppable due to crowds of people who role in once a month it seems to stock up on supplies and half the time what I'm looking for isn't even in stock. I'm a Target shopper and will sing the Tar-zhay praises until Walmart finally self-destructs. ....Boycoting Sam Walton's empire in Pittsburgh...

Don't be so quick to say that. I am not saying Target is a bad store as they are competition to Wal-Mart, but I haven't found products (especially clothes and electronics) to be the same quality as I might find at JCPenney or Kmart. Target buys too many imports, mainly from China, and just housing it in a fancier store in better areas. Now Target is opening a few stores a week, and now there is SuperTarget to watch out for.

I think that if Wal-Fart is going to build stores every 10 feet, they need to vary the sizes more. Every store they build is a supercenter these days. What I'd do is put smaller, Kmart sized stores in smaller towns, and small supercenters in mid sized towns, and then larger (but not the ridculous behemoths they build now) supercenters in big towns.

By the way, I've noticed that there's no supercenters in the Detroit area, even though many stores are only a couple years old.
