    This will put a sneer on the face of Wal Mart haters everywhere


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said on Tuesday that it will contract with local hospitals and other organizations to open as many as 400 in-store health clinics in the next two to three years.

    Should current market forces continue, the world's largest retailer said up to 2,000 clinics could be in Wal-Mart stores over the next five to seven years.

    Wal-Mart said the effort marks an expansion of a pilot program it started in 2005, when it leased space within its stores to medical clinics. Currently, it said 76 clinics are operating inside Wal-Mart stores in 12 states.

    It has said the clinics are expected to boost the health of its shoppers and should also help sales by drawing consumers into its stores.

    Why not take a tour of all the Wal-Marts in the world. You could take.........draw pictures with crayons, and write a book and become rich and famous and buy a double wide.

    All I said is why not take a tour. You would enjoy it, write a book, make some money, go on the talk show circuit, by a bigger trailer. What's wrong with that?

    dissent and hate are two different things. :eusa_think:

    I see some say, america is bad, the worst thing ever, america is too blame for everything bad in the world, and then some say, america is perfect :eusa_think: , but has made a lot of progress, however, i disagree with one of her decisions at the moment.

    since when is any country perfect. :confused:

    If the WalMart medical clinics are half as efficient as their previous optometric clinics maybe they will be enough to get the optometrists back.


    WalMart, Medical/Visual quality and cheapening of American lives just doesn't coagulate.

    Wal Mart provides one stop shopping for waht familes need at a low cost

    Most of the anti Wal Mart attacks are backed by union money

    It is common knowledge
