i dont think you save that much at Walmart, actually.....if you shop at stores like Publix, they often have many items every week that are buy one get one free...

combine that with coupons, you're saving a BUNCH...

Last week I spent $70 bucks or so on groceries...but I saved $42 because of the B.O.G.O. and coupons!!!

Certain things i have saved greatly on buying them at wal mart compaired to anywhere else.. I dont really do my food shopping there more so for camping supplies, fishing auto needs etc. Wal-Mart is just the new Sears with much better management and business profiles.

Though i am tired of Ruby Tuesdays and such, not many home grown places survived in my areas since the aforemented and about 20 cookie other cutter type eateries...

Amazing how much retail sq footage there is. Orange COunty NY is about 350,000 to 450,000 population wise and there is about 10 million sq ft of retail at least.

now i wish someone would just open the quading and outdoor version of Wal-mart :-)

The reason that I hate to go there is because they have ruined our community since SuperWalmart has come to town....we used to have several locally owned hunting/sporting type stores that has closed down and have had three good size grocery stores to close down because of the SuperWalmart. If the majority of people would stop and think about how much they import from China and where they got their gas from I doubt they would be as big as they are.

Pretty much anything electrical has a mini computer in it these days and all the relay boards are pretty much made overseas... So just seeing where it was assembled and even when it says made in USA does not mean all components are. Even so there are many companies who are owned by foreign companies which then the money goes back to the parent company. Sam Walton just lived the American Dream by building on the largest companies in the world, they are also the largest employer in the USA.

About who goes to Wal-Mart

Each week, about 100 million customers, nearly one-third of the US population, visit Wal-Mart's US stores. Wal-Mart customers give low prices as the most important reason for shopping there, reflecting the "Low prices, always" advertising slogan that Wal-Mart used from 1962 until 2006. The average US Wal-Mart customer's income is below the national average, and analysts recently estimated that more than one-fifth of them lack a bank account, twice the national rate. A Wal-Mart financial report in 2006 also indicated that Wal-Mart customers are sensitive to higher utility costs and gas prices.

I am neither pro or anti Wal-Mart, they are just doing what everyone wants them to do, the demand for them is there and proven so by their sheer size.

Jay Nordlinger of National Review argues that Wal-Mart is attacked simply because it is a leader of the Fortune 500 list or the largest employer in America, and a "free-market success story". Penn & Teller devoted an episode of their show to an analysis of Wal-Mart criticism as a social movement. They theorized that despite the noble rhetoric, the real motivation of "Wal-Mart haters" was rooted in human psychology. They suggested that hating Wal-Mart permits a person "to feel better about themselves" for three main reasons: They "don't run a greedy international conglomerate", they aren't Wal-Mart workers, widely considered "low-skilled, minimum wage drones", and they aren't Wal-Mart customers thought of as "toothless, welfare-getting hillbillies". Wal-Mart stores are unionized in every country outside of North America

I am neither pro or anti Wal-Mart, they are just doing what everyone wants them to do, the demand for them is there and proven so by their sheer size.

So Wal-Mart and Microsoft are perfect examples of the American dream come true and just do to the nature of their size will always have foes.

    • Trying to bring one back to life

      I am trying to help my son with a machine he recently bought. A Coleman Outfitters 400 4x4 UTV.(Ihsun 400) The problem is a big one and I'm trying to work through a step at a time. It's a 2014 that had a Kodiak 400 motor and CDI box put in it for some reason but don't know year. There was a fire and someone pulled out and messed up the old wiring harness. He got a new harness for the Utv but now we have to try to figure out how to wire everything together. Any help on wiring the Kodiak to it's own CDI and or into the Utv would be Greatly appreciated. If I get a Diagram for that motors wiring then I can go to work on the harness install for the machine. I do have pictures of some of the #s on the motor, CDI box and of the harness coming from the motor.
      I know its asking for a lot to hope someone might be able and willing to help but it would be great if I could get some feed back. Now I have to see about uploading some manuals I have for older Linhai/Manco Atvs that I have.
      Thanks

    • Trying to bring one back to life 2

      Hello all. As a second major part to trying to help my son bring a 2014 Coleman Outfitters 400 UTV to life I am trying to find a schematic of the electrical system for the complete machine. Have to try to wire a Kodiak 400 engine and CDI box into a New machine wiring harness. We also have to install the Complete harness into the machine as the old one was stripped out. Have nothing against buying a service manual but really love it if/when I can find a Schematic in a PDF file so I can blow it help to better follow the wire runs.

      This could happen anywhere/anystore. Watch out!!!!
      OMG! YES! THIS IS TRUE!
      It happened at Wal-Mart (Supercenter Store #1279,
      10411 N Freeway 45, Houston , TX 77037 )
      A month ago. I bought a bunch of stuff, over $150, & I glanced at my receipt as the cashier was handing me the bags. I saw a cash-back of $40.
      I told her I didn't request a cash back & to delete it. She said I'd have to take the $40 because she couldn't delete it. I told her to call a supervisor. Supervisor came & said I'd have to take it.
      I said NO! Taking the $40 would be a cash advance against my Discover & I wasn't paying interest on a cash advance!!!!! If they couldn't delete it then they would have to delete the whole order. So the supervisor had the cashier delete the whole order & re-scan everything!
      The second time I looked at the electronic pad before I signed & a cash-back of $20 popped up.
      At that point I told the cashier & she deleted it.
      The total came out right. The cashier agreed that the electronic pad must be defective.
      Obviously the cashier knew the electronic pad was defective because she NEVER offered me the $40 at the beginning. Can you imagine how many people went through before me & at the end of her shift how much money she pocketed?
      Check your receipts. This could probably happen at any store where they will give you cash back so be cautious.
      Just to alert everyone. My co worker went to Milford DE Walmart last week. She had her items rung up by the cashier. The cashier hurried her along and didn't give her a receipt. She asked the cashier for a receipt and the cashier was annoyed and gave it to her.
      My worker didn't look at her receipt until later that night. The receipt showed that she asked for $20 cash back.
      SHE DID NOT ASK FOR CASH BACK.
      My co worker called Walmart who investigated but could not see the Cashier pocket the money.
      She then called her niece who works for the bank and her niece told her this.
      There is a scam going on.
      The cashier will ask for cash back and hand it to her friend who is the next person in line.
      Please, Please, please check your receipts right away when using debit cards. The store has the cashier under investigation now .
      We can only pray that she is caught very soon.
      My husband and I were in WalMart North Salisbury and paying with credit card when my husband went to sign the credit card signer he just happen to notice there was a $20 cash back added .
      He told the cashier that he did not ask nor want cash back and she said this machine has been messing up and she canceled it.
      We really didn't think anything of it until we read this email.
      Please be aware

      This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.
      After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to WalMart.
      Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and out. Equally unfortunately, my wife is like most women - - she loved to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local WalMart.
      Dear Mrs. Samsel,
      Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Samsel are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.
      1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.
      2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at
      5-minute intervals.
      3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the
      women's restroom.
      4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official
      voice, "Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away."
      5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's
      on layaway.
      6. August 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.
      7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other
      shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets
      from the bedding department.
      8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began
      crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"
      9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it
      as a mirror while he picked his nose.
      10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he
      asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
      11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly
      humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.
      12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by using different sizes of funnels.
      13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed
      through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"
      14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!"
      And last, but not least
      15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited
      awhile, then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"
      Regards,
      Tom Richards
      Walmart Manager
