  1. I never liked Walmart. Their prices for the quality they offer is not that great. I never understood what the whole craze of “going shopping in Walmart” was. Walmart is one of the most over-hyped stores in American history. Shoprite & Waldbaums prices on food is definitely cheaper. For their other products, they are no better priced than Kmart or Target.
