Wal-Mart, oh Wal-Mart. I was not able to attend class on 2/26 so I took it upon myself to watch the “People of Wal-Mart” video. Wow. That is all I can say. That was crazy. After watching it I googled “worst of Wal-mart” and this is what I found. I just cannot believe that some of these people would leave their homes like that.
Personally, I love going to Wal-mart. In my home town there was a Wal-mart but it was on the smaller side. Last February the new Super Wal-Mart open right down the road from the old Wal-Mart. It has anything you could really need or want. I love going there. If I need anything I always go to Wal-Mart first. they seem to always have the lowest prices and are the most convenient. And I do not know where all these people are coming from because I have never seen anything like them at my local Wal-Mart. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve definitely seen people in their pajamas, or in less than fitting outfits and such but I can honestly say nothing as bad or worse than these images. I feel like people like them a major reason why Wal-Mart has such a bad reputation. This is of course overlooking the politics of the corporation of Wal-Mart and simply looking at this from a consumer’s point of view. To me, there is nothing wrong with shopping at Wal-Mart for anything really. I even to this day buy clothing there. I am not ashamed or embarrassed of that fact. I do not buy all my clothes there but I occasionally find some really cute items that are very popular and Wal-Mart happens to be selling them for a cheaper price than other popular clothing stores. Therefore, i have no problem buying that item at Wal-Mart and saving myself a few dollars. On the other hand, there are people who do not like Wal-Mart and believe it is a place where only poor people shop. To them, I say, to each their own.
