    Back in 2015, we witnessed some Walmart stores being abandoned for plumbing issues – they said. Remember at that time, Obama was President, so Trump cannot be blamed for anything which took place in 2015. However, NBC has just published a story revealing why Walmart abandoned some stores in 2015. But they are blaming President Trump for what began in 2015, but has manifested in 2018. Before we look at 2018, let us go back to 2015. None of us knew why Walmart was abandoning some stores in California, Texas, Florida, and Oklahoma with no warning to the public. When...

Upon investigation, the Yuma Police Department found out the same man had pulled the same scheme...

    Supermarket giant Walmart has long lauded itself on its low prices and discounts, as evidenced by the tagline "Save Money. Live Better." A duo in New Orleans allegedly took that slogan too literally when they brought cut-out price tags into a Walmart store in order to buy goods at a lower price, police said. On May 25, Jeffrey Johnson, 49, and Leilani Walther, 50, were observed on surveillance video using false Universal Product Code labels to purchase goods at a lesser price at a Walmart at 4001 Behrman Place in Algiers. The duo is suspected of cutting UPC labels from...

    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...

    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,...
