* As Wal-mart moved into America's urban areas (as opposed to suburban, where Wal-Mart began), it racked up over 12,000 lawsuits.
* In the 1970s Wal-Mart promised to keep its stores closed on Sundays, in the 80s began to keep its stores open Sudnays, and later it kept some stores open 24 hours a day.
* Wal-Mart promised it would never sell alcohol, and it is now the largest retailer of spirits in the United States.
* Wal-Mart now has a massive presence in Canada, Britain, Germany, and Mexico, as well as stores in Brazil, China, Korea, and Puerto Rico.
* Close to 900,000 people are employed by Wal-Mart in America, and no Wal-Mart stores are unionized, except in China. (Thanks to Amy for pointing out that most Wal-Mart stores in China are unionized.)
* Wal-Mart is the biggest retailer in the world, and it did over $165 billion in sales in 1999.
* An article in Forbes magazine's 1991 "400 Richest" issue described Wal-Mart's basic concept as "Discount stores in small towns and rural areas, each big enough to freeze out competiton."
* Wal-Mart dodges taxes. A lot.
* New Wal-Mart stores study what local independent stores sell and sell it for less--often at a loss--with the aim of forcing independent businesses out of business.
* a 1995 survey in Iowa revealed what had happened in that state since Wal-Mart had arrived in 1983:

o 50% of clothing stores had closed
o 30% of hardware stores had closed
o 25% of building materials stores had closed
o 42% of variety stores had closed
o 29% of shoe stores had closed
o 17% of jewellery stores had closed
o 26% of department stores had closed

* On average, about 100 stores go out of business in the area surrounding a town with a new Wal-Mart store.
* According to Residents for Responsible Growth of Lake Placid, New York, for every job created by Wal-Mart, at least 1.5 jobs are lost, and numerous other studies give similar figures.

Also, since most WalMart employees are too poor to afford health insurance, a lot of them depend upon their State's Medicaid program for their health care. WalMart is truly the devil.... :thumbdown:

I agree that Walmart is evil, but I'm lower middle class, so its the only place that i can really afford to shop on a regular basis. Not to mention they let me "rent" all the hottest new electronics as long as I keep the receipts.
