In poor economic times (like right now) I thank God for Walmart. Everything you need under one roof....well almost.
I see all makes and models of people at Walmart, including local doctors, lawyers, city councilors, cops, firemen, celebs, etc. They all shop there....including the local business people that were against Walmart setting up shop in town.

I live very rural and Walmarts are the closest stores to me for a quick or unexpected need.

I personally think that because of the lower pricing and large variety of goods sold,you get a "cross section" of people shopping there and as a whole,I do notice that there are more people than in the "preferred" places I shop (when I don't mind a drive) that are a bit "less than..."

But if you take a portion of this society and stick them in a large enough space,you WILL tend to notice this more often than not,such as in an airport or public arena.

The largest ratio of people in general are not going to be "model material" or physically fit.

The only time I "dislike" being surround by this humanity is when they bus in the "kids" from the schools: teens that are preggers with their guys and they teach them to "shop and parent" IN the damn Walmart....yes,the achools actually hold these "classes" in Walmarts.They are rude and rather nasty/trashy and even with their young bellies full of baby,very agressive sexually and it's NOT a pleasant situation as you shop through the store to have 50 or more of these kids strolling around texting and making off-color jokes,making out in the aisles...

Welcome to South Texas,LOL!

It's funny that your signature is "Love" as you look down your long nose at the common peasants. Apparently, that love must not be for your fellow man.

I beg your pardon. I go to WalMart after midnight alot. I do not want to run into a lot of people when I go to get the things I need, I don't go to see "who is who" in walmart or who dresses up and who dresses down.

Some of the wealthiest people wear torn and faded jeans and stuff like that. You can't judge a book by the cover. That is discrimination.

I shop at wally mart!

Most of the time I end up at the corner store or something closer and not huge. Ever now and again I go out between 11pm and 3am to get something, like tools or a game.

I could be trashy...I'm a Boar (Chinese year) I like my pigsty.

(and i don't know how to spell)

king you are amazing really you are. To quote you:
"Of course other people shop there, and to get personally offended because the majority of shoppers ARE TRASH, is completely ridiculous."

So perhaps you would give us your definition of trash because you seem very sure of what you are saying no matter how it is making you sound. Please tell us what trash is to you.

To all your questions that appear to be union propoganda, the answer is "YES."

Again, Wal-Mart knows that unions provide zero useful purpose.

Unions are counter-productive. Unions are a non-productive cost.

And we've seen the businesses heavily manned by unions. My God, the disaster.

Is wal-mart really that "cheap" in the long term?

They sell genetically engineered foods, processed foods with sugar and chemicals that are proven to be damaging to the human body and mental well being of people.

The furniture they sell is utter crap that falls apart after six months. The same goes with the clothes they sell, its junk that does not hold up like a quality garment.

They sell toys that are DANGEROUS to children containing lead and god knows what else.

There are plenty of alternatives but most people are not willing or able to actual look around.

They just make it easy for this consumer obsessed country...

So while all the union businesses are tanking and millions of union workers are out of work, non-union businesses such as Wal-Mart are doing very well.


That's why Wal-Mart doesn't have any more butchers, and all you can fidn there now are pre-packaged meats. They unionized, and Wal-Mart fired em all.

I stopped buying their meat when it started to come pre packaged. I do get my meat at the local market, I really prefer it be cut fresh on site.

Convenience is another major reason many people shop there. Especially people with no cars, much easier to make one stop if using public transportation too.

It's the company, not the patron.

Wooo! We agree on something. Yes, the company is trash, not its patrons. Although after that news story of a man slapping someone else's kid around in Wal-Mart...

Well my walmart shoppers are trash, but that is because it is right next to a giant trashy trailer park in the poorest part of town. So yes the only ones who go their are trashy people (in my town). But I blame Walmart for that not the trashy people. Our Walmart is a very dismal place...

I still am waiting for king to define trash for me.

What defines a person that you guys think is WalMart trash? Or trailer trash for that matter.

Trash to me would be someone that you could throw out. If you don't want to deal with their garbage anymore, throw them out. Throw them out of your house, your business, your life...but same people you can't throw. It is all perceptional and everyone has their own definition. Some might have the some definition as well, all I'm saying is you'll never find it from others. Look at what you feel to be trashy and you'll figure out how to categorize it for yourself.

Everyone I know shops at Wal-Mart regularly, except me. When they think I need something, they say "Why don't you just go to Wal-Mart to get such-and-such?"... I just agree with them, because I don't want to insult the people I love.

I just don't like the way they do business and the impact it has on the community. I would rather spend what little money I have on supporting the businesses that I want to see around tomorrow, so I'm not forced to shop at Wal-Mart.

My family of 4 lives on about $1,200/month and almost half of that is rent money for our little apartment. We've been here for months and it still looks like we just moved in. No curtains, no decorations, boxes of books stacked up because I have no bookshelves, almost all of our furniture was handed-down from family.

Most people would probably say I'm "trashy" or not a good woman, because my apartment doesn't look like a "home", but it's really not all that important to me to have stuff. We have shelter, food, electricity, internet (necessary for working online), and every once in a while I'll find a cheap box of kids clothes on ebay for $10-$15.

I don't need Wal-Mart, and Wal-Mart definitely doesn't need me, but local businesses do... and they actually seem to appreciate every one of their customers.

I don't have to shop at wallyworld. I send my servants to shop there for me.

Just joking. WalMart has a nice pharmacy. And the greeters at the front door are sooooooo hot!

Great post.

Unfortunately Walmart has virtually "taken over" many smaller communities leaving people no choice but to shop there unless they want to drive to a bigger town/city for more varied shopping.

But since I have a choice in the area I live, I will support locally owned businesses as long as I have the finances to do so.

Walmart sells their brand insulin for $23, or I could pay $40+ at Rite Aid or Walgreen for the exact same thing. I've never been a big Walmart shopper because I never lived close enough to one. Now, I have one about 15 min. away. When I was there getting insulin, I just wanted to check out the grocery section because I never had before, and I was surprised at the prices. For the past 6 yrs, I have shopped exclusively at my local hometown grocer, but now since times are getting tough, I will buy groceries when I go for insulin.
I'll buy just about anything at Walmart, or Kmart. I don't shop in the malls or the high end stores. Never have, never will.

I have two relatives who won't shop at a Walmart because they think the people who shop there are trashy, lowlife folks. Whatever. It's insulting to me that someone would think that. If they've got money to piss away, good for them.

And if you are old enough to remember, there was a time when Kresge's,- the five and dime store,- Kmart were top dog.

Walmart is marketed towards those living in poverty- plain and simple. They are the people we see everyday, and some just happen to fly their freak flags a little higher than others. I myself do not automatically associate Walmart with trashy people but I CAN say that it does attract quite a few. Case in Point

I say stop being so sensitive by expecting people to be politically correct all the time. A person can be well mannered, thoughtful and sincere while still cutting loose and laughing about this crazy life. I personally find humor in how diverse humankind is and that can be very endearing.
