Shogi hit it on the head. This is just one piece of the puzzle for Walmart..they have many issues they need to fix.
I rarely find anything at Walmart anyway. And on the rare occasion I do, it's usually in the wrong section, on the back of some endcap that no one would think to look at/for in the girl's section.

Well ,that explains what my walmart was doing yesyerday. The whole isle was blank.As I see it ,this just means we (as an online community) are gonna hafta help each other out more. I think are canadian friends the most. Meaning , no price gouging on stuff ,I have no problem picking stuff up for people if I see it as I know most on here dont either, and If we keep it that way evrybody still wins. Def. with all the new stuff coming out. Thats what makes this site so much better than others!-mark
Check out my feedback.....

I hope they don't follow Target's lead- around here that means raising prices, and not restocking anything. Not that Walmart hasn't been doing a poor job of that on their own, but the last dozen times I went to Target it was far more depressing than Walmart when it came to Joes.
I just don't hope they don't follow the Kmart model of doubling the prices of everything that doesn't sell.

Working for Walmart myself, I can vouch for just how much Walmart emulates Target. I understand that if you get better products in that people will buy them. If you downsize some of the areas where you have the most shrinkage (toys/electronics/anyother department that has alot of bullsh*t that nobody will buy), you won't lose your ass on markdowns and clearancing out crap nobody was buying in the first place. Not rocket science - right? But the way that they're so blatantly copying Target it's just so... I dunno - SAD???
It's part of buisness though I suppose. If one company has a better way of doing things than the way you've done them for 20 plus years, why not copy them?

- Items with pieces broken or missing still at full price or discounted less then 10%
- Employees not present/unable to answer questions/unwilling to answer questions
- Drooling customers blocking aisles while shouting
- Soiled diapers in parking lots
- Parking lots designed by madman
- Customers leaving partially-consumed food and drinks on store shelves
- Customers depositing greasy/sticky smears of God-knows-what on otherwise nice items
- Useless items clogging clearance aisles at 10% off or so for two years while non-selling items clog regular shelves at full price (The same Asajj Ventress that looked as if its had been played with by dogs was on the aisle for two years, reduced by about $2.50.
- Self checkout aisles closed to prevent stealing, but no additional employees assigned to run full-service (ha!) registers
- Customers allowing their children to play with items in the aisles with no intention of purchasing them

Up in Canada Wal-mart has a huge piece of the toy market. Only options are TRU and Zellers as options for GI Joe toys. Our local Sears, Loblaws/Real Canadian Superstores only carry Batman and Transformers... <sigh> Hoping that changes when TROC toys flood the market.

If it hit 25 or so I'd grab it to open, but 50 isn't low enough.

Blah who cares, long as Target keeps thier selection its fine by me. It should all move to internet based outlets like BBTS anyway, I have gotten EVERYTHING from the 25th/modern I could not get at retail everytime from them. Walmart blows donkey balls and has for some time with product, it is just one less stop on my hunt like the removal of K-byee. There's the door Walmart don't let it hit you on the way out!
