Re: Walmarts Issues

Target is taking a chunk out of WalMart, by selling to consumers at HIGHER prices than WalMart...............

Maybe WalMart is too big for their britches......... A new SuperCenter was built about a mile from my house. The first weekend, they had a ton of business, and ran out of everything. The corporate geniuses got overwhelmed, and the store had empty shelves for two weeks. Now the shelves are stocked, but the place seems dead..............

Re: Walmarts Issues

I am not a big fan of Wal Mart... but have to admit that I just went there two nights ago to get a new car battery... they have better prices and install for free...

I used to shop at Target, but they decided to close down the 'small' one that I used to shop and opened a large one a few miles down the road... now wally world is closer...

Also a Lowes fan for the same reasons given... better service and cleaner store... and got a new fridge and dishwasher for cheaper than any other place...

Re: Walmarts Issues

Aren't both those French companies. Tarzhay and Wal(de Mont)Marte.
I can see one of each here in beautiful Petersburg, VA at the SouthLake(Park) or better yet Exit 53 of I-95 N. Oh, now I see it out my hotel window, Colonial Heights.

Drive off the freeway and 600 millions acres of cheap junk for sale.

The most impressive Walmart item was Pocket Sudoku (no not pool), I bought the medium hard cause that seems a good match (to other things)

America on rhoids.

OAP, I see your medical problems haven't impacted your wicked sense of humor...or improved your sense of common courtesy, either.

How's the world treating you?

Nope, your privacy is your business and I'm not gonna play those games.

We just want you to understand that the board's rules are the same no matter how many personalities you post under.

BTW Steve's website wouldn't load whatever you're pointing at.

Edit: Whoops, I'm too late to speculate that others might out you.

BTW next time I hit the "Quote" button I'll leave in everything you say...

Well, the French helped us out a bit during the revolutionary war. And as far as them not supporting the Iraq war - How stupid do you think they are? - Not GWB stupid!

C-T, they built concrete bunkers in the 1930s at a cost of trillions in todays dollars,
They lasted less than 2 weeks. Yes, they are GWB stupid and always will be.

My Versailles tour guide told us the money they gave to the US during the Rev war helped to bankrupt France, not mentioning the wasteful spending by Louis and Marie at Versailles, etc. I just had to tell himthat it was a very clever investment - it paid very big dividends during the 20th century...

Re: Walmarts Issues

Incredible if true.
I'm using a computer in the lobby of Hilton Garden Inn in South Richmond.

How can that be the same as a poster in San Francisco.

I challenge you to show that they are the same. You cannot.

Out my window is this scene a water tank reading Colonial heights, A Rugged Wear House, a Panera Bread and an Old Navy. ie, South Richmond.

And i doubt that OAp would ever slam Nords, they seem like to peas in a pod.

It's possible since they own a good portion of Mack and Volvo trucks, but as I said if I can find an alternative I strike the French company off the list without hesitation. I did not realize Samsung was a French company, good thing I don't buy them. I think their products are very poor quality. I liked Nissan when it was all Japanese, but I haven't driven one in a very, very long time.
