Looks like we’re in for another “Recovery Summer.”

Wal-Mart executives blamed the poor sales performance on increased payroll taxes as well as delayed tax returns

Those must be tax hikes on the 1%. < eye roll>

I admit that when it comes to matters of economics, I am not your go-to girl, but I find it puzzling that sales for a particular month can be tabulated and analyzed when that month is just barely half over. Don’t they need to see the figures for the entire month?

If they had any ammo in stock maybe their sales would have been higher.

Anyone shopped there lately? WM groceries leave something to be desired. We don’t get fruits, meats etc there at all anymore. Looks awful. Our local Kroger is full all the time now while WM Grocery across the street has only a few in their parking lots. Used to be the opposite.

Higher payroll taxes this year are seen as a potential problem for Wal-Mart and other discount retailers that try to attract lower-income customers who have less disposable income.

No problem, we'll just offset that by raising the minimum wage so that they'll have more money to go shopping at Walmart.

What, yinz guys down in Bentonville have a problem with that?

Obama would be able to fix this, but he’s busy with golf lessons.

I’m in Retail, too - and our sales have been slower this month, but we’ve had some pretty horrific weather this winter, which is part of it. Oh, and people are losong jobs, losing homes and they’re broke.

As for Wal-Mart, I blame myself. I haven’t been to Wal-Mart in a month. Because...wait for it...

I’M BROKE!

I am sure Obama will get right on this! (right after he gets back from his latest vacation and golfing trip)

I bet Walmart sales have dropped because the roaring economy has sent everyone over to Bloomingdale’s,dahling!
