    That rumbling sound you hear coming from Northern Arkansas is Sam Walton spinning in his grave at what his greedy kids have done to his company!
    MALL-WART is a disgrace to American business in general!
    I will drive 125 miles to Knoxville, Tn. to shop at Publix before I would go 18 miles to my local MALL-WART!!

    Not surprising, this is the same company that would rather close stores than pay a living wage.

    They even screw over those who try to provide contract services to them, as a friend found out, he told them to stuff it after a few weeks of them trying to give him the shaft on terms and payment.


    There are a couple items they provide as generic product under their brand, but that’s all I will buy there. COSTCO, while membership, treats their employees fairly, has matching or lower prices, and their “house brand” products are of superior quality. Living a long way from either store however, it’s typically only a twice a year visit to either, but even at that, usually “save” enough to make the membership fee there worth it (and that’s a significant portion of COSTCO’s profit!)

    You might be surprised. Some liberals understand it far better than some conservatives. As it is not a political philosophy, but rather a monetary system, neither political bent can truly claim superior knowledge.

    And it is dangerous to believe in sweeping generalities. The exceptions to those rules may also surprise you.

    I met Sam Walton once some years ago. Driving a truck, we would sometimes stop at Mall-Wart to shop as they usually have large parking lots. The manager at this particular store jumped all over me about parking a truck tractor, no trailer, on the far side of the lot. There were NO “No truck parking” signs, but he threatened to have my truck hauled off, and have me arrested.
    This older man in overalls and a John Deere cap starts to say something to the manager, and is told to “Shut the hell up, and mind your own business, old man”!
    He pulls out his I.D., shown it to the manager and says “My name is Sam Walton, and how long DID you work for me? Your employment has just ended, clean out your stuff, and be off my property in 10 minutes!”
    He then looked at me, and said “Whatever you need to get, it’s on me, for the inconvenience, and I truly apologize for him!”
    THAT’S what I remember about Sam Walton!

    Conservatives need to learn the difference between “free markets” and “corporate monopolies”. Teddy Roosevelt knew the difference, and cracked down on the trusts, even though a Republican.


    Masterskrain: that friend I mentioned earlier lives in Arkansas for some time now, originally from Texas. He mentioned when talking about telling the “new Wal Mart” folks to “stuff it”, that he too had heard similar stories from his folks about “old Sam”. The current family reflects “inherited wealth and position”, just like Trump, the Koch brothers, and a number of other “right of the right” wealthy “conservatives”, who actually AREN’T! Monopoly is NOT a true conservative value, be it government, OR corporate!

    Walmart under Walton not only sold U.S. made goods, it promoted the fact. I recall an aisle of various products by the front door with a large “Made in the USA” banner overhead. One of the reasons it is so hard to find U.S made products in Walmart these days is that the company pressures its suppliers to move their manufacturing overseas to cut costs. The savings would be expected to be passed on to Walmart.

    It’s about 3.5 hours to Nashville from here, but just over 2 to Knoxville.

    In ND where employment is at 5% Wal mart pays 17 bucks an hour starting.

    @Harleyquinn

    And exactly what position does Walmart pay $17 per hour? How much per hour do they pay their cashiers and stock persons?

    How nice for you that you can afford Publix. Not all of us can. Aren’t you the lucky one.
