Re: UH Oh Walmart Haters

I must be the 1 out of 10 who will not ever shop at a Walmart ever again. I have not been in one for at least three years after repeated poor customer service issues, product replacement issues, as well as quality control issues of electronics and food items.

I definitely am a Walmart hater.

Re: UH Oh Walmart Haters

i have a love/hate relationship with wmart, like you said customer service is poor, they do have good prices, and with the way food has gone up, still cheaper to go there, so like anything, take the good with the bad....

Re: UH Oh Walmart Haters

I'll be sending my Mom in to get the SHR Oreos! Actually, MJ said it best, i too have a love/hate relationship there. may be stupid, but i'm willing to spend more elsewhere, but if i can't find things elsewhere, invariably i find it there (dammit!)...
