It seems, that during the past several years, the Wal-Mart stores in my area have taken a nosedive. The aisles seem congested, but items are poorly stocked and the shoe department can best be described as helter skelter.
The stores seem dingier and more rundown. At least the employees are still generally courteous. What gives? There is one newer store that is not a "super" Wal-Mart that still seems to be clean, well stocked and the employees friendlier than the norm. Is Sam Walton even alive? Is the mega
retailer now run by bean counter bottom line yuppies? Have you found Wal-Marts in your town to be worse, the same or better than they were five years ago?
falling prices or falling service?
