as a kid in the 80's, late teen in early to mid 90's, i LOVED my local woolworths! its where i went as a kid, to looka t the toy guns, dinosaur
models, oil fitelr and auto section, jeans coats and plaid autumn shirts! they had teh best!! and was very lcoa, next too caldors for me. value
priced, and you got damn good prodcut! its sad they went bankrupt/ fled chapter 11. woolworths had a food place in mine...tucked in kinda, was bench
seats, cushioned..they were well known for theor hotdogs. god i wish they were still here. unfortunately, my local woolworths closed t doors, in early
Bradlees was another very cool place. whrre it is now near me, its been taken over by a KHOL's. khols is cool i guess, at least they sell new
balance sneakers and socks made in america* but thier mens dress hsoes selection kinda sucks..for me* so i shop at macys.com. my local macys, in
mall, is never organized in the mens shoe section, they never have my size 11 wides, and the mdoels i like, alfani or bostonians, or rockports, are
advertised on the table, but never ever stocked. got tired of that, so do it online. the shoes, have always been piled ontop eachother, or so
understocked, yuode think thier goin outta business.
i kinda like my local walmart* well theris 2, one i hate* the other is cool actually. but sicne its known as china mart, and my research here,
informing me of womens rights abuse, underpayment for being female..is a huge turn off, despite im a guy* shuoldnt mattter gender or race* some woman
who worked at a walmart, lilke a montha go, sued and won for being underpaid for being female. walmart has lost my sales and customer forever. i work
in retail management, so know* in a sense. the securit htier isnt so good either. few years ago, iw ent thier one night..had a used black leather
biker coat on, unshaved, long hair..tired form a few hours of rest. security guy dressed as a customer walked past me a few times, checking me out.
meanwhile, no lie, wathcing him, a customer across the isle, older clean cut guy, took 5 airwick air reffills, and put them in his coat pocket.
walmart was watching the wrong guy, me*
the thing is* they have the best descent prices* i can get a huge container of ALL( not so many chemicals in it comapired to other detergents) for
$9.99. most other stores, sell a 50oz container of tie for that much or more!
i do my shopping online now, and always look for made in america* that i amm HUGE on now. example..been looking at LED bulbs. i found 2 websites,
googling in USA made LED bulbs. many others, reading hte fine pritn, were made in china..and prob not up too UL listing. this is what walmart,
amongst other nameless places, have forced us to do* shop online*
