    As some of you know, I have sort of a reputation for finding great deals. Anyway, one open "secret" is that Walmart has become very competitive with Amazon. Now, I am not crazy about shopping at Walmart on weekends (and I don't need to tell you what a nightmare that can be) but I have gotten a lot of great deals where I merely walk into the front of the store on weekdays and pick up stuff I ordered online. Well, right now they have a great deal where you don't even need to go to the store and you...

    ‘Unarmed’ black man killed in Walmart parking lot by police officers firing 'dozens of bullets' into packed carPolice have shot and killed a 26-year-old black man in a packed car outside of a Walmart in what his family say was an overly aggressive police response that led to an unnecessary death. Police in Barstow, California killed Diante Yarber, a father of three, earlier this month after attempting to stop the vehicle he was in. A report from Barstow police says that Mr Yarber was “wanted for questioning” in a stolen vehicle case, and that he struck two patrol cars before...

    HARRISBURG, IL — Some people in Illinois picked up dinner and a show last week at their local Walmart. Mason Ramsey, 10, was there and just started singing. He's now known as "The Yodeling Boy" for his rendition of Hank Williams' Lovesick Blues. The little yodeler has since gone viral for his Walmart concert with dozens of funny memes that have him singing with rappers and rockers. Walmart is loving the free publicity too. They've decided to throw a concert at Mason's hometown Walmart in Harrisburg, Illinois.

    A Georgia mother gave her 13-year-old son a lesson in humility after she noticed he was belittling his classmates at school for shopping at stores like Walmart and Goodwill. Cierra Brittany Forney, fed up with her son’s “entitled” attitude, decided to serve him a slice of humble pie by making him shop at the Goodwill store he mocked his classmates for shopping at—and posted about the experience on Facebook. “I don’t tolerate that,” Forney wrote. “Today, he took his own ($20) to the goodwill to buy clothes to wear the entire week to school. Whatever he found is what he...

    Walmart is removing the sex-obsessed, pro-abortion women’s magazine “Cosmopolitan” from its checkout shelves. The retail chain announced the change this week after considering concerns raised by parents and conservative groups about the content of the magazine, USA Today reports. “While this was primarily a business decision, the concerns raised were heard,” Walmart spokesperson Meggan Kring said. “Cosmpolitan” often displays scantily clad women on its front covers, along with headlines promoting risky sexual behavior and other objectionable content. It also regularly advocates for abortion on demand. Inside its pages, Cosmo has criticized late-term abortion bans and justified eugenic abortions of disabled...

    A funny thing happened to Walmart during the past five years: The retailer -- known for its Arkansas roots and its red-state appeal -- has made inroads with left-leaning shoppers. A majority of shoppers who identify as Democrats now say they would consider shopping at Walmart, a shift from just five years ago when slightly more than four out of 10 said they would buy from the store. Democrats also say they now view Walmart in a positive light, while five years ago their perception was negative. Walmart has also increased its workers' pay and spoken out against anti-gay laws,...

    A Metairie man walked with a machete into a Kenner Walmart and used the weapon to try to kidnap a 2-year-old boy and then an infant, swinging the blade at store employees before he was tackled and arrested Friday (March 23), police said. At one point, police said, Billy Yoe Budier-Herrera, 33, forced a mother to struggle for her child and to take refuge behind the store's deli counter, moments before store employees and an off-duty Kenner police officer working a detail subdued Budier-Herrera inside the Walmart Supercenter, at 8912 Veterans Blvd. Budier-Herrera was booked with two counts of second-degree...

    Last week, at least two dozen producers who ship milk to Dean Foods in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio were told they have until May 31, 2018 to find a new home for their milk. “Unfortunately, Dean Foods has made the difficult decision to end milk procurement contracts with a number of farmers in about 90 days,” says Reace Smith director of corporate communications at Dean Foods. “We regret this decision had to be made.” If this sounds familiar that’s because, almost one year ago, producers in Wisconsin were told by their processor, Grassland Dairy, that they...

    With Amazon Prime fees jumping up another $2/month for only monthly subscribers, you might be wondering if your membership is really worth it. Especially since Walmart now offers free two-day shipping without a membership (plus, at Walmart you can have your groceries delivered right to your car!). We decided to compare a sample of Amazon’s prices (not factoring in the Prime membership fee) with Walmart’s everyday low prices. The verdict? Generally, Amazon beats Walmart for makeup, baby supplies, toys, and pet supplies (unless you’re using coupons!). But when it comes to groceries, cleaning supplies, medicine and personal care, Walmart is...

    Despite clear federal laws barring discrimination against pregnant workers, some corporations still unlawfully treat pregnant employees as if they are second-class citizens. In the latest case to make the news, Walmart refused to make a reasonable accommodation for pregnant employee Whitney Tomlinson in Atlanta after her doctor directed her to avoid heavy lifting for the duration of her pregnancy. Instead of accommodating the request by temporarily assigning her to a different department, Walmart’s human resources department told Tomlinson she needed to apply for unpaid leave from her job — leave she did not want and could not afford. According to...

The grocery chain sells guns and ammunition at its Fred Meyer stores in the western U.S. Those sales will continue but persons under the age of 21 will be prohibited from purchase. CNN Money reports that Kroger released a statement, saying, “In response to the tragic events in Parkland and elsewhere, we’ve taken a hard look at our policies and procedures for firearm sales. Recent events demonstrate the need for additional action on the part of responsible gun retailers.”
