It is my observation that Walmart is a mixed blessing. The fact of the matter is that they are here to stay however. They do hire folks who would otherwise be unemployed and they do give them an opportunity to gain a positive work experience in a very structured environment. That is a big benefit to these people and other prospective employers. I think that is worth supporting. I also want to make my dollars go as far as possible and Walmart helps with this. I can go to Fred Meyers or other similar store and find the SAME items there at a higher cost. Even at upscale shops you routinely find the "China" labels. If other businesses can't compete . . . well isn't that free enterprise? I don't like paying a surcharge for a purchase just because I didn't have to shop at Walmart. There are choices.
