WAL-MART Internal Email: 'February sales total disaster ... worst start to month in my 7 years'...
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had the worst sales start to a month in seven years as payroll-tax increases hit shoppers already battling a slow economy, according to internal e-mails obtained by Bloomberg News.
“In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February MTD sales are a total disaster,” Jerry Murray, Wal- Mart’s vice president of finance and logistics, said in a Feb. 12 e-mail to other executives, referring to month-to-date sales. “The worst start to a month I have seen in my ~7 years with the company.”

Wal-Mart and discounters such as Family Dollar Stores Inc. are bracing for a rise in the payroll tax to take a bigger bite from the paychecks of shoppers already dealing with elevated unemployment. The world’s largest retailer’s struggles come after executives expected a strong start to February because of the Super Bowl, milder weather and paycheck cycles, according to the minutes of a Feb. 1 officers meeting Bloomberg obtained.
Murray’s comments about February sales follow disappointing results from January, a month that Cameron Geiger, senior vice president of Wal-Mart U.S. Replenishment, said he was relieved to see end, according to a separate internal e-mail obtained by Bloomberg News.
“Have you ever had one of those weeks where your best- prepared plans weren’t good enough to accomplish everything you set out to do?” Geiger asked in a Feb. 1 e-mail to executives. “Well, we just had one of those weeks here at Walmart U.S. Where are all the customers? And where’s their money?”

I cannot believe they are wondering why. They have all the money so how can they expect more of it? The source is dry now. No more where that came from.

make sure you get enough protein. eventually your stomach will shrink and you won't feel like you are starving all the time. and make sure you allow yourself some 'emotional eats' once in a while. i always make sure i have some dessert after dinner. just make the way you are eating into a lifestyle and ditch the word diet. it has 'die' in it.

Many years ago they use to have some decent shoes and clothing. Now the shoes suck and don't fit and the clothing styles are horrendous and made to fall apart. So I may buy some food from there but hardly anything else. I am not surprised they aren't making as much money anymore.

I have been shopping there very infrequently because

A) they never have what I'm looking for
B) it's like walking through a trailer park with all the scum that goes in there
C) their pricing is no longer low enough to put up with A and B

When their shitty house brand box of noodles is 2.19 and the brand name equiv is 2.25, I'm buying name brand. And I can do that anywhere. I don't need to deal with the low lifes and retards in motorized carts, etc.

Also, since they decided to mess around with guns/ammo, I won't go in there at all. I don't even own guns, but they should stay the FUCK out of politics if they want to stay in business.

I agree...DIE Walmart DIE!

True. People are on stuff overload. I know I am and have stopped spending on non-essentials and get clothes that are needed from Goodwill.
