Some people have to shop at Wal-Mart [View all]

It is, literally, the only store within 30-50 miles.

Wal-Mart is horrible: they treat their employees and their vendors horribly, their promotion practices are sexist, they are union busters, each store costs a community approximately 450k in public-assistance benefits, the owners are loathsome people who give little to charity and much to RW politicians.

If you have stores other than Wal Mart in your area, please shop at them. My mother's med scripts are cheaper or the same at Wal Green's and Target. You really can find food and other stuff as cheap at places other than Wal Mart. Tractor Supply has great cat and dog food at great prices, as well as lawn stuff and some clothing. I know many other big corps suck, but WM really is one of the worst.

I have family in very rural areas, and understand if you have to shop at Wal Mart, but if you don't have to, please don't. And, PLEASE respect the strike this week if you can.
