I know I shouldn't but I do and way too often. It's the only big store in our area. When I do shop farther away, I like Mejer's or Andersons.

Not regularly, but they are the only store that sells the cappuccino mix I like and the cinnamon coffee my husband likes. And only 1 of our walmarts sells his coffee.

 Very rarely.  Luckily it's farther away than Target or my local(ish) grocery store so it's really inconvenient to go there.  A few weeks ago we were really broke and I bought groceries there to save money.  I hated myself for it :/

Like a PP said, I'd rather get things cheap at Kmart, but they all seem to be closing in my area :(  The only one I know of in my area is 20 minutes away...

I'm glad you have a job. I assume the PA fills the gaps. IMO, that is exactly what it is for. I have no problem with that. In my experience, in my area, people make the choice....full blown PA or a job. They don't choose to let it 'fill the gaps'. 

Quoting deadlights86:

Dh works at WalMart and I also work we're on pa. Lots of people with jobs are on pa.

Quoting jesse123456:

I have a friend who is an assistant manager at the Wal-Mart in my town. She started there as a high school student with a part time job. She doesn't understand the whole big issue with Wal-Mart. We live in a 'right to work state', it is a no skill, minimum wage job working as cashier or out on the floor. If you don't like it, go get training and get a better job. If you have no skills, it is a job. If you are between jobs, it is a job. She said she has never been treated the way the popular opinion tries to make you think Wal-Mart treats the employees. In her opinion, the people who complain are the ones who want something for nothing. They want high pay and benefits, but they don't want to do anything to earn those things. 

I have another friend who is a manager at the Wal-Mart in a neighboring town. He went to business school. He says that Wal-Mart has all kinds of advancement opportunities if the employees are willing to take the time for the training and accept the responsibilites. 

So, my friends like Wal-Mart, and they work there. I don't know. The prices are good, and I get help when I need it. Plus, a person with a job is a person not on PA which is a good thing.

this.    I couldn't agree more about the employee's.  Plus the store near me is disgusting. 

Quoting OHgirlinCA:

No! I freaking HATE Walmart! The employees are rude and I'm ready to smack somebody every time I go in. I will only go if I absolutely have to.

Our target is usually cheaper for charmin, and I use target up & up paper towels. They rock!

Quoting toomanypoodles:

 Yes, necessary evil I guess.  They have the lowest prices for toilet paper, Kleenex and paper towels...so that's where I go. 


I don't buy their clothes or shoes though...just name-brand household stuff.
