When I used to shop at Walmart I would just keep walking. Even if they receipt checker tried calling out to me. I would just keep on walking. I was
never stopped or held against my will.
My reasons for not shopping at Walmart is that there is nothing there that I buy.
I don't buy produce from Walmart. I don't buy electronics, or clothing, or anything. It's crap quality.
Sure they have toiletries, and stuff like that, but I can get that from a Kroger, or Publix, or wherever.
I buy good sturdy quality ware mostly, and Walmart stuff is low grade.
When I buy fancy attire I definitely don't go to Walmart.
I don't buy my ammunition from Walmart, they don't carry any professional level camera gear. Their tools suck, their car stuff sucks.
I can't think of one reason why I'd want to go to Walmart.
I enjoy going to specific stores that specialize in what I'm looking for. It always me to build a good relationship with local experts and hobbyists.
Learn about wheres and whens and events. Also, I've found that the return policies and waranties are usually better.
Overall it's just generally a more pleasant experience.
I go in to one of my favorite stores, look and see if there's anything new. Talk to the men or women working for a bit if they're not busy. Maybe buy
something or order something.
Idk. It's a community thing. You either get it or you don't I guess. I understand that a lot of people would rather stay locked in their houses with
their favorite source of entertainment telling them what to think, and order things from the internet to get delivered straight to your door, so you
never have to deal with other people and live in your bubble.
But, I prefer getting outside talking to people and making friends. I'm big in community involvement and doing what I can to help out those around
Walmart is pretty much the complete opposite of everything I enjoy or believe in.
Everything is impersonal. Everyone looks like they're disgusted just being there and being around other people. Employees walk away, ignore you, or
mumble because they can't even do their job properly.
There is no camaraderie, and you're treated like a potential criminal. It's disgraceful.
