Let’s be real with each other for a moment. You probably don’t know who I am (or care to know who I am beyond who my Debit card says I am) and I may or may not have/have had a thing against you. On the one hand, there are reports of discrimination and low wages amongst your workers and the whole “huge-store-with-prices-that-can’t-be-beat” thing kind of kills the competition for local, independently-owned stores when you move in. (Not to mention you have a wikipedia page dedicated to “Criticisms of Walmart”)
But on the other hand, you employ 1.4 million Americans (2.1 million globally) and provide people with super-low prices in a time when more and more people are falling on financial hardship. Plus, since you’re so popular, you can have a real impact on the community (for better or for worse) with your campaigns- such as your recent health kick. And you have a lot of stuff.
So while I still must say that I have not made up my mind about you, Walmart. But I have to say… thank you. For this:
You happen to be the only store I’ve found (in my area) that’s currently carrying Libby’s canned 100% pure pumpkin.
