    I've shopped at Walmart many times. I was glad it was there. Convenient, good prices, what else do you want?

    --------------------------------------

    Wal-Mart (Fortune 500), which averages 140 million shoppers weekly to its stores in the United States, is considered a barometer of the health of the consumer and the economy. Wal-Mart's core shoppers are running out of money much faster than a year ago due to rising gasoline prices, and the retail giant is worried, CEO Mike Duke said Wednesday.

    Wal-Mart has struggled with seven straight quarters of sales declines in its stores

    With food prices rising, Duke said Wal-Mart is charging customers more for some fresh groceries while reducing prices on other merchandise such as electronics.

    "We're seeing core consumers under a lot of pressure," Duke said at an event in New York. "There's no doubt that rising fuel prices are having an impact." "Purchases are really dropping off by the end of the month even more than last year," Duke said. "This end-of-month [purchases] cycle is growing to be a concern.

    About thrice, when an emergency arose.
    Walmart is a piece of shit that destroys small businesses and turns people into ignorant wage slaves.

    In this great Obamacession who can afford NOT to shop Walmart?

    For example, Kellogg's Special K cereal $1.00 per 18 oz. box under cheapest competitor.

    Salad dressing, still sold in 32 ounce quart bottles at WM vs. house brand in competitor's store for a buck less despite the other store now selling "quart" bottles containing 28 ounces.

    House brand bread at WM, 2/$5.00 vs. $3.49 per loaf ($6.98 for 2) at national grocery chain.
    Same weight, same expiration date.

    Not surprising that even WM is seeing sales decline. When you lose your job and have to live off "benefits" you don't have as much money to spend so you don't spend as much. Sounds simple enough but surprising how many people can't do the math. Must have attended public school.

    I go to Wal Mart when I'm in the mood to watch fat women in stretch pants beat the crap out of their kids.

    Walmart has very low prices but they impose a great inconvenience on millions of people by knocking out the mid sized stores in an area. I have to drive an extra 10 miles to go to Walmart because the discount stores that used to be on my side of town are now all gone. As are the supermarkets for that matter.

    They are just the latest in a decades long string of the big retailers crowding out the smaller ones.
