Remember President Reagan’s Trickle Down Economics policy? It’s pretty plain to me that we are experiencing his mantra first-hand — except in reverse. The news is replete with reports of bankruptcy, foreclosures and unemployment. Tuolumne County only recently experienced the closure of our local Mervyns store. Last year they closed down Albertson’s with promises of […]

I have been shopping at Meijer in Coldwater, Michigan for the past six years. Our family purchases between $5,000 to $6,000 per year in groceries and merchandise at Meijer. Over six years, this amounts to approximately $34,200.00. Recently in December 2008 my purchases equaled $108.55. Paying by check, I was astounded and embarrassed because the […]

I purchased 4-curtain panels at a Wal-mart Store in Overland Park, KS for $8.00 each. 2-days later while in Oklahoma City, I attempted to purchase additional curtain panels — the exact same but the OKC Wal-mart was charging $16.94 per panel, over 100% increase. I had my receipt from the Kansas store and spoke with 4-different […]

I went to my local Walmart yesterday. Upon trying to check out the 8 of 35 checkout lanes open were horribly long so having only a few items I choose to use the self checkout.   Not having purchased fabric from Wal-Mart in a good long while I didn’t remember that this was a no-no […]

   I have been having my prescriptions filled at Wal-Mart since I retired in April. I have Blue Cross Shield of Florida. I also have Medicare. Seems like your pharmacists and clerks cannot get anything straight. I have had hassle after hassle. Sometimes when I go to get my medicine I have insurance and most […]

Unsanitary Birds Flying Around The Boynton Beach, Florida Wal-Mart My daughter and I were shopping at the Boynton Beach, Florida Wal-Mart when suddenly we noticed birds were flying around the store, leaving droppings and eating the food directly from the shelves. We immediately contacted the manager (Megan) on duty. She did not bother to call […]

  My daughter was at Wal-Mart yesterday and put some nail polish markers in her cart to decide on what two colors she wanted to buy. She put her purse on top of them to stop them from falling out the holes in her cart. She then saw that she had the wrong cat food […]

I really hope someone can help me. This past Thursday my husband and I were at our local Wal-Mart looking at laptops, mine is older and I just wanted to upgrade.    We saw a great deal on a HP Pavilion Laptop with 15.4″ screen, 3GB Ram etc. Great deal! The sign said Unbelievable Price […]

I think that my Walmart shopping days may be over. Customer service is lousy, you can’t just stop in for a few items to save a bit of money and get in and out of the Dixon, Il or Sterling, Il stores. The checkout lines have at least a 10-minute wait. Is there a shortage […]

Beware…Wal-mart has a No Tolerance Policy when it comes to Shoplifting or Human Error. A few weeks ago a family member failed to put a small bottle of laxative/fiber pills (cost under $5.00) on the belt for the cashier to scan along with the other grocery items. Walmart’s well trained security guards knew exactly what […]

   I bought an Emerson Research Alarm Clockfrom Wal-mart a couple of years ago. I wasn’t supposed to have to set the clock’s time except for a time zone. Now that the daylight savings time dates have changed I have to set it now. I paid extra money so I wouldn’t have to worry about […]

My son got a job at McDonalds about 3-months-ago, he wanted to save money for the things he wanted, and one particular item was an Xbox 360. Well he finally had enough and yesterday we went to Wal-Mart to get his 360. He was so happy, his mother and I were so proud that he […]

Manager threatens to call police on customer attempting to return a DVD containing the wrong movie. I recently purchased a movie for my 5-year-old daughter at Wal-Mart. It was supposed to be The SpongeBob Squarepants Moviebut when I got home (about 20 min. away from Wal-Mart), it was an Avatar cartoon movie in the SpongeBob […]

I hope that my story will be posted on Off the Shelf as a warning to all Wal-Mart shoppers. Especially you other Mommy’s out there. On Thursday, March 20,2008 I went to the Salt Lake City location nearest to me to cash my paycheck and buy my kids some new shoes for Easter. I am […]
