Walmart is a predatory corporation that has put thousands of small family owned businesses out of business. Watch the documentary, "The High Cost of Low Price," it will make you boycott Walmart, Sam would be so heart-broken.

Glad they are foresighted enough to adapt their bushiness model to our needs for today and in the near future. staying flexible increases their value for the future. you stand still you shrivel and die
