    Wal-Mart remodels

    Has anyone else seen these remodeled stores? They look like Target but blue. I swear it is hidious. The action figure aisle here was cut by 75%. It is about as big as Targets aisle. Way to shoot your self in the foot there Walton family.

    Are there still palettes of merchandise blocking the isles, shrieking employees yelling over the PA every 10 seconds, does it still smell like stale french fries, and are the checkout lines still a mile long?

    I hope it hasn't changed too much, I might not want to shop there anymore.

    The thing that upsets me, is in Chicago the starting wages for employees working at big box stores will be $10 an hour, and I make barely over that after 2+ years of busting my hump. Chicago passed an ordinance making it so. Article below. BTW, the Wal-Mart closest to me just painted there store a sandy brown color.

    hmmm...well the WM we l.a. collectors refer to as the Third World Country WM is being remodeled. i'm not sure to what extent but maybe it'll look like what KH described. and that would be a definite improvement over the current store.

    So I guess that's standard operating procedure for all Wal-Marts then, eh??

    it doesn't matter what WM does, by "rolling back" prices they attract the lowest form of customer. they built a brand new store along colfax in denver recently. now barely a year later they're building a new one nearly next door cause the first one has been so severely thrashed. many of the WM here have recently been remodeled to include faux wood flooring, which looks horrible.

    They can build a new Wal-Mart in an affluent area. However, it will attract rednecks--even if it's in Beverly Hills and you have to have won an Oscar to be granted entry, it will somehow attract the rednecks. And it will look like poo in two months time. It's just the way WM rolls.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Seriously, how legal is that? I wonder if it would stand up to a court challenge?
