Plus ça change…

Before

wal-mart-smiley1

  • Name: Wal*Mart
  • Logo: A smiley face – YAY!
  • Narrow, cluttered aisles.
  • Lots of “markdowns” and “rollbacks”
  • No help when you need it
  • Long checkout lines, (not enough cashiers)
  • The biggest supply chain in the world, but always out of the things I want.
  • Your choice of Carts: 2, 3 or 4 bad wheels.
  • I didn’t like shopping there.

After

walmart-21

  • Name: Walmart (no star, no hyphen)
  • Logo: What is it? A star? A sun? or, as one wag suggested – a sphincter?
  • Wider, uncluttered aisles
  • No more “markdowns” or “rollbacks”
  • Grocery prices doubled. Apparently it had nothing to do with gas prices.
  • Still no help when you need it
  • Long checkout lines, (still not enough cashiers)
  • Still the biggest supply chain in the world, but always out of the things I want.
  • Your choice of Carts: 2, 3 or 4 bad wheels.
  • I still don’t like shopping there.
