Death to all businesses who have raped the craig people for far too long with disgusting prices! Hale Wal-mart's global domination!

Has anyone noticed that Kmart has bumped up their customer service a notch? I hope it will be a growing trend.

i don't think they' will be selling fuel, it would be in the front like at city marts/king soopers that do... i know it would have helped with gas... you get 10 cents off with their card...

Local buisnesses will have to cater more to the people now, staying open later and providing fair prices.

i say thank goodness! local places needs to bring their prices down! plus walmart is a one stop shop; it's like kmart (only better) and king soopers all put into one.. although, i still will shop at safeway for groceries, walmart food IS overpriced

I've seen the bad, the bad and the Ugly of Walmart~ Globally they are NOT the best choice for our enviroment! They build massive stores filled with "junk" manufactured in countries where children are forced to do the dirty work, that is if they don't die first. They underpay their employees (take a peek at all the Class action lawsuits) and offer terrible benefits. Aside from overtaking a small town with their retail monstrosity they cripple small businesses! Instead of being grateful for this "Anti-Christ" of a corporation, I think as an American we should ask ourselves if it's really ok to sell out what this country was built on to make the multi-billion dollar company that much stronger?
