Walmart does little for Greater Trail

"I cannot believe how badly Walmart Corp has treated the Greater Trail Area with the changes they are making at the local outlet."

I cannot believe how badly Walmart Corp has treated the Greater Trail Area with the changes they are making at the local outlet.

Anywhere else they would have completed their renovations in a much more timely manner. I find their process very disrespectful but I guess we should have known this before they setup in the area.

I find their employees unhappy and unmotivated. They don’t know much about the products being sold nor where they are in the store. Who could blame them. Walmart has little vested interest in them. Walmart will disagree with this evaluation.

They will claim credit for providing opportunities. I would like to see the list of employees that are in a position to purchase a new home or a new car on a Walmart salary. I am sure it is quite small.  How is this a benefit to the community when the employees can’t add value to it?

Recently, Walmart took a big hit on the stock market.  I am sure that the next shoe to fall will be a reduction in staff, benefits and service. It will become even harder to find motivated employees and you know who is going to suffer.

Walmart has not added value to our community.

It has helped to dry up local shopping opportunities and reduced diversity.

In general their outlets are unattractive.  They remind me of a depressing no go zone in a major city.  I simply wish they would go away.
