I’ve already mentioned my disgust for Wal-Mart and that I refuse to shop there. Of course, I’m not the only one. However, it was nice to see Punny Money back me up in this fight. On Punny’s list of the “Top Five Companies We’d Be Better Off Without,” Wal-Mart came in #4. And I happen to agree with the rest of the list on most counts, even though my mobile phone is powered by Verizon and I still trust Sony as the name in camcorders (from experience). Still, I would have put Wal-Mart at #1.
I’d say “I hope Wal-Mart reads this,” but if they did, they’d probably sue me for libel. Well, just in case they do: Don’t sue me. I don’t have any money… haven’t you been reading the rest of the blog?
Update: If you buy “Wal-Mart, The High Cost of Low Price” through this link, I get a kickback, and everyone wins… except Wal-Mart!

Stephenie I have to agree I HATE Wal-Mart and will not support them even if some of their stuff might be cheaper. Target gives 5% of all income to charity… we can go there instead! Did you hear Wal-Mart is trying to get into the credit card business? They want the Wal-Mart card to replace Visa/Mastercard etc. (http://creditcardforum.com/general-credit-card-talk/302-oh-no-wal-mart-thinking-about-getting-into-credit-card-biz.html)
