at the Kaua'i Walmart store. Praise Walmart!
When Walmart opens shop in many parts of the country, the first people offered jobs are the ones that may be affected. For example, the ma and pa hardware store that has struggled for years and barely makes ends meet maybe offered the job as manager of the hardware section, most likely making a better living than they ever did struggling with their small business.
Walmart has the best return policies, 90 days no questions asked. Most stores if your lucky give you 30 days.
Walmart on Kaua'i is a meeting place for many to talk story at the McDonald's located within. One can actually buy local vegetable starts manufactured by a local Kaua'i nursery cheaper at Walmart than you can at the actual nursery.
Walmart is Kauai's fifth largest employer, without Walmart many more would be unemployed.
Why are so many down on Walmart but not down on other corporations such as Safeway, Foodland, Times, K-mart, Long Drugs, Burger King, Starbucks, Panda Express, the list is endless?
It's your right to boycott Walmart, but it's also Walmart's right to strive for perfection in a competitive marketplace.
The stores I boycott are the stores and restaurants overcharging with rude clerks, and on Kaua'i that is pretty easy to find.
I say a big mahalo nui to to Walmart worldwide for providing us with one stop shopping featuring aloha and great savings. Hallelujah and Praise Walmart!
