Is Wal-Mart In Trouble?
I went to pick up some groceries at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago. They were out of two of the things I needed, so I decided to come back in a couple days. I went back, and they were still out. As I looked around, I noticed it wasn't just the things I wanted. The whole store looked almost barren. There were big gaps on the shelves. I've never seen it like this before. I know the economy's in trouble, but Wal-Mart has always been the one exception. When I saw Wal-Mart like this, I thought, "It must be REALLY bad"!

Not seeing it quite that bad here. I'm noticing shortages of certain products. When they do come in I buy everything on the shelf.

If you went a few weeks ago or the first of the month it may be that the welfare/ebt folks cleaned things out. The first of the month is when they get their money and go shopping.

Look, I know what you're going to say about their products. I just go there because it's really close to my house, and cheap on gas. I just wanted a particular brand of whole wheat bread that only they sell. But apparently, they can't afford to sell it anymore.

Re: Is Wal-Mart In Trouble?
My neighbor is a walmart manager-he told me that when they remodeled to the "Blue" color scheme they cut out about 30% of the shit they used to carry.......

I've also noticed the empty spots in the shelves....this is Xmas season....store should be full o shit.

Now that everyone has got their big flat screens I think walmart & worst buy are in for a world of hurt this season.

Thanks for sharing. I think your neighbor knows what he's talking about.

Re: Is Wal-Mart In Trouble?
I was in my local Walmart store this morning (that's where the optician is, it's not a Walmart company). Anyway, I needed those little candle lights for my front windows, so thought I'd kill two birds etc.,. not only did they not have the candle thingies, the Christmas decoration stuff was really bare. It's not late enough in the season for them to be nearly out of everything Christmas related. I avoid the place like the plague, just being in the store makes feel awful. The ladies working the checkout counters are ancient, that's depressing too. Why are they working at Walmart in their 80's?

I agree. I hate going in there. It almost gives me panic attacks. You've got the 80 year old retirees like you said (saw one running back and forth in electronics...felt so bad for him), the crowds of sheeple, screaming kids, and you can just sense how evil the corporation is. I do occasionally go though becuase it's conveniently located close to all the other places I need to go. It's too early for them to be out of Christmas stuff.

Why do you support a company that contracts 60% of all of its goods from china, the same company that destroyed small business's in your local town, only to rehire those owners for shit wages and benefits

In the back of my mind, I knew it would turn into this. You can never just make an observation on GLP without having to defend everything you did last week. It gets old, you know?

I don't support them. I go there when I absolouely need to because it's very close to our house. If I have an emegency, I go. In those cases, it's very convenient.

But, that has nothing to do with that this thread is about. It's about the collapse of Wal-Mart, which is strating to become evident.

Hostess Brands produced a lot of bread. Wouldn't be surprised if your Walmart specialty was contracted to them and now gone forever.

Haha. I don't know why alot of people assume I'm my husband on here. I guess its' because girls are not as much into GLP. But I assure you, he's a very good husband. hf

I went to get some "green" toilet bowl cleaner. All they have now is lysol and clorox brands. They used to have like 6 other brands to choose from. But I found a SOG tomahawk for $20 and some good warm boot socks for my wife so I'm cool with that.

You obviously don't understand what he's saying. He's not making fun. He feels sorry for them, as do I. We were saying they shouldn't have to work at age 80. But they do, becuase our govt. is corrupted,and won't give them enough social security.
