A Scary Reality About Wal-Mart's Customers: They're Broke
Wal-Mart shares are tanking after the company's executives called February sales a "total disaster."
“Have you ever had one of those weeks where your best-prepared plans weren’t good enough to accomplish everything you set out to do?” Wal-Mart exec Cameron Geiger wrote in one of the emails reported by Renee Dudley at Bloomberg.
“Well, we just had one of those weeks here at Walmart U.S. Where are all the customers? And where’s their money?” Geiger asked.
Wal-Mart is facing a scary reality: the ailing finances of its core customers, Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst at NBG Productions, told us.
Yep, no blame for Lord O. It's always someone else's fault...May the FORCE be with you!

Wouldn't have anything to do with them beginning to support some of 44's causes now would it?
Perhaps the stock holders are showing their feelings about this.

I don't buy clothing there, it never lasts and you spend more in the end than buying higher priced higher quality garments. The food isn't that much different from local grocery stores and their "Great Value" brand is more times than not crap, not to mention the selection isn't all that good...
Tools!? Don't even get me started on those one-time use pieces of junk.
Wal-Mart has completely lost what it used to be... I really don't think their support for Maobama has a whole lot to do with it...Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

How can that be, in this thriving Obama recovery?

Wal-Mart didn't come to Michigan until the 90s, so I never really got in the habit of shopping there because I shop at Meijer for groceries and the types of things one buys at Wal-Mart. Both stores sell crappy merchandise made in China, though.
I know that when Sam Walton was alive, Wal-Mart was all about selling American-made products. If they had still been doing that when they entered this market, I probably would have started shopping there. Now, it's the store I go to when I can't find something anywhere else. I got my lawnmower there, for a good price, but it's a piece of junk in a lot of ways-the engine is Murphy/American made and good, the frame is chinese junk.. I used to go there to buy CDs, but they don't have the super selection they used to (no one does).

To be honest, name me a national chain that doesn't sell stuff from China.Deplorably Proud To Be An American
