So generous, that they leave their post to hold the doors for me when I exit in my power wheelchair, as there are no automatic door openers for me to operate independently.

Dear Ann Wood,
Your savings at Walmart are at the exploitation of their workers who work for slave wages and poor benefits. This is why their prices are lower and your "income taxes" are higher. Your income and property taxes are used to pay for welfare programs because those working at Walmart full time- still cant survive- But the owners and major stock holders earn BILLIONS per year profits. think about that. While their workers still need food stamps. So you really aren't saving anything but hurting the locals by shopping there vs Price Chopper and Hannaford who pay living wages with good benefits. Also, setting electronics aside, if you are shopping for food at Walmart and are really researching the pricing- many items are higher cost at Walmart vs
Hannaford brand My Essentials is great quality and costs less. Also, every dime you spend at the more local grocery stores (PC, Honest Weight, Niskayuna COOP, Hannaford, the Farmers markets)-
stays in the local community circulating- VS every dime you give to Walmart goes to line the pockets of the already disturbingly wealthy stock owners- Walmart never invest in their employees or the community. So if you shop there, you are reinforcing a bad business.
