With all due respect I can't share the enthusiasm over walmart. They've just about done all they can to eliminate competition with their buying power and dictations to manufacturers/wholesalers. Without question, everyone likes lower prices - but at what cost to their community? So, watch out when wally-world comes to your town. Gone will be many of the small, family-run, businesses where you used to be able to find knowledgeable, helpful people, who aren't always complaining about the low wage they earn - like the yellow-smiley button wearing greeting folks at the walmart.
