Walmart is a very very bad place!!

Started this so those bashing Walmart on the "Food prices are up" thread have someplace to go.

I wonder why Wal-Mart is being bashed because food prices are up? Apples and oranges.

I can't stand the place because in my local store they have 29 registers but at any one time they only have about 5 or 6 open and the lines are long all the time. Takes longer to check out then shop.

there are a lot of instance where I can stand on principal. Unfortunately, when I t comes to feeding my family it gets a little dicey. Money doesn't go as far as it used to and although there are things I can and do go without, food is not one of them.

Walmart makes it possible for my grocery budget to go a little further.

Our walmart is quite nice, although I have been in some that aren't. Think it depends on the area in which it is located.

We do 95% of our grocery shopping at Wal-Mart. The few times I've stopped into the local grocery store lately, I've been utterly disgusted by the prices.

Oops, am I on the wrong thread?

My husband and I were in WalMart grocery shopping the other day. He has always patronized the grocery store. DH refused to buy food there but the other day, he needed a drill bit so we made it a one stop shop. He was surprised by how much less expensive the groceries were. I had been telling him this and he saw it for himself. Now, he only wants to grocery shop at WalMart. Of course, he loves the grocery store's gourmet section so I'm sure he'll go there for his fix every now and then.

There's a certain kind of medication (rather not say what) but at every pharmacy it is upwards of $100, the lowest I've ever seen was $115.
Wal*Mart has it for $25. We used to not go there but now we do, because otherwise the medicine just isn't affordable.

I can price match anything every week. No questions asked. It saves me thousands a year. I usually shop Aldi's all the time. They are 50% cheaper than Walmart and food is amazing.
