I just got back from Walmart and is that place a mess. The lines are so long they go into the merchandise and takes 30 minutes to check out. There are problems with checking out as well several people in front of me had trouble with merchandise being scanned and when I paid for my purchase I got the wrong amount of change. It was significantly wrong.
There is also the problem of too many shopping carts in the parking lot and not enough in the store. I usually don’t use a shopping cart, but I hate it when they bang into my vehicle. To help avoid this I usually need to park as far from the entrance as possible.
I am thinking I need to shop a little earlier and drive a little farther to avoid all the irritation that is shopping at Walmart.
Perhaps a good way to get the message across to management would be to have flash mobs throughout the county and in unison abandon products while standing in line and walk out of the store.
It’s kind of irritating that they are making huge profits while driving small businesses out of business and at the same time treating their customers badly.
Update September 14, 2012
I have been going back to Wallmart to get some photos of shopping carts that have hit cars. However, ever since I created my post I have seen Wallmart security gathering shopping carts as I park. So no photos of carts crashing into cars. But I will keep up my vigil for the good of the community.
I don’t know who to thank for the improved shopping cart policy, but if it is the attractive gal with the dark hear, she should get a rise and a promotion. I know she is the one I talked to when I decided to write the post in the first place. She is the manager who has also tried to be helpful whenever I bring up a problem that can only be corrected by management. In contrast there is a large male manager who seems quite indifferent to problems I have pointed out in the past. I have a hard time believing he would implement a new shopping cart policy.
If Wallmart doesn’t give this gal a raise I suggest one of the many companies in the City of Industry recruit her. I don’t know her education but she has a kind of raw talent that can’t be taught. Hire her and pay for her education, it will be a good investment.
New update, no security guard collecting cart on last visit and this is what you get
