I like the Walmart in the town closest to me. It is beyond huge, almost like a warehouse. It too, is clean, no weird dressed people, friendly employees. This Walmart has everything, plus a great variety of choices in food, clothes...just anything. It is by far the best Walmart I have been to. When I see "Walmart" stories, I'm kind of surprised.
I like shopping at Bloomingdales...and the 59th Street Flagship is the largest store I've ever been in. My mom used to take my sister and I when we were young and I still shop there to this day. Employees are always more than helpful and gracious...as are other customers. I love that we live in a country that offers shopping options for everyone. And because one person chooses to shop at a store that another does not, it is not wrong. I have choices.
The ones here are all in poor neighborhoods and some of the people are very rude. I have had good experiences too but honestly I'd rather shop at Costco. Their employees have a better work life, better benefits, and more job satisfaction. I like supporting that sort of corporation.

Well, if you don know any better then....But seriously if you've never shopped any where else than how can you tell if Wal-Mart is crappy? Also I think your small town Wal-Mart probably has a much different feel and clientele as one in an urban area.
I don't shop at walmart, I can go to the PX, commissary, or HEB and get just as much for the same price if not cheaper...especially at the PX where it's tax free. I try to avoid wal-mart, I live on the edge of the city where it's calm and everyone is polite...going "into town" for wal-mart is like a whole new world...not calm, not polite.
