I hate Wal-Mart. For so many reasons this post could go on forever. The main reasons I hate Walmart it is always packed with trashy people. The store itself is very functional..and therefore not exciting or fun to work through. The new Super Walmarts are just plain too big. People love Wal-Mart because their prices are so low. But I know why their prices are so low. My fiancee gave me the reason. Wal-Mart has certain shipping regulations. If they get a shipment from a vendor that has a slightly damaged box..even so much as a slightly off centered label, they refuse to pay for the shipment..yet they get to keep the merchandise. This happens all the time. Therefore the cheap merchandise. I work for a vendor..it only hurts the maker of the kleenix, socks, whatever. Also, everyone has heard of Wal-mart's lack of health insurance for their employees. Horrible. I try to only go to Wal-Mart when I absolutely have to...like when I'm in dire need of fabric at 2 am and I'm designing a show..and I can't wait until the fabric store opens the next day. Yup, that's about it.
