At the moment I'm writing this: an article entitled, "Layaway, other changes irk Wal-Mart loyalists," is at the top of the front page of MSNBC.com. Frankly, the article itself is nothing new, but the comments are incredible! Again at the moment, there are 12 pages of them. I don't have time to get through them all, but I haven't found a positive one yet. They include this:
Wal-mart is just about over as a company. Sad but true. Lee Scott was a bad pick as a CEO. Sam was wonderful and had foresight. Lee is scared and has not original thought. I loved the company but it is only a shadow now.This:
This is a sad, sad store and has a sad, sad manager. Most of us in our little town liked the store just the way it was before the re-model. Walmart you wasted your money. Along with many of the comments on clothes I have stopped buying them as well. I am a grown woman and can not wear that stuff you call clothes and as well the quality has gone down. Prices are skyrocketing at this Walmart. I can go to the next town and buy a new released cd at Walmart and at the Kinston Walmart the price is double. I no longer shop at this Walmart. I go to the next town which is only 20 minutes away and shop at TARGET....much better for me.And this:
I will not shop at Wal-Mart. Their employee's are among the rudest un-helpful people. Their stores are messy, cluttered and dirty.Someone better tell Edelman about this so they can go astroturf some positive comments pronto!
