Not really. They say they have the lowest prices, but when I price compare - they don't! I don't like the atmosphere. I feel like I'm walking through a loud warehouse. I'm not impressed with their public relations. I heard they are going to sell more products made in America. I'll believe it when I see it.
On the plus side, it's convenient that my entire shopping list can usually be taken care of in one place.
My mom hates the place. She says that they intentionally stop selling some products, and then start selling their own version if the same thing. What's ironic is that their prices are really high. Even though they have the "lowest prices."
I never shop there. These "big box" operations are death to small, independent businesses. They drive the competition out of the market by undercutting prices, and hiring only part-time employees (no benefits, minimun wage, etc) but only until the competition is eliminated. Then they can charge whatever they want, do whatever they want.
I like shopping there somewhat, but not that much because where I live at I have got into trouble for a couple things like for one I was acting crazy with my brother who started chasing me around in the clothing department trying to hit me. I got chewed out by some tall employer who worked there and she actually got right in my face with me just standing there laughing, smiling, and staying calm. Another time was when I was shopping with my father who I was talking to about something and this lady just swung by hitting me with her shopping cart almost knocking me down onto the floor and I started cussing and yelling at her and she just stuck her head up high and took off like she was perfect. Another time was when I got into it with a woman in the parking lot for laughing at my grandma who was embarrassed because she accidentally skid her truck up against a pole. I was daring her over to fight me, but she instead laughed and took off. So now I rather prefer shopping at Target, Sams Club, Mall, and just basically anywhere else, but Wal-Mart is alright sometimes....
