Within five minutes of my house there is a Target, a Meijer’s, a Kroger’s and… a Wal-Mart.

The latter is the one that I like shopping in least. I can’t remember the last time I went to this particular Wal-Mart, though others in town are better. I try to keep my visits down to twice a months or less, going when it is less busy; get in and out as quickly as possible. The simple fact of the matter is that, for me at least, Wal-Mart is an unpleasant place to shop.

In 1979, the biggest retailer in America was a company called F. W. Woolworth. They no longer exist. Wal-Mart ignores this fact at their peril.

I could go on, but this blogger says it better than I ever could.

A most enjoyable read.
