Shopping is NOT fun here. I repeat… oh never mind, you get the point. The worst thing for me is that there are no fun places to shop. I’m not a big spender when it comes to just buying superfulous stuff. I like to window shop though and you can’t do that here. Walmart doesn’t count. There are no malls, and very very few mom and pop stores. I can see I’m going ot have to travel into Canada soon to find something to look at.
Walmart is a nightmare. An absolute nightmare. Normally I try to be snotty and have some moral high ground when it comes to Walmart but I realized here that I don’t have that luxury. So since I have to go there, I try to do it only once a month. This walmart is literally unlike any in the country. I don’t know the numbers (I’ll look for them) but I have heard this walmart does more in sles in one month than any other Walmart does in a year. Having lived here for a few months, I believe it. It takes longer to check out than it does to shop. Average time we spend in line waiting to check out: 45 minutes.
The picture above is one I took and is typcal for what this Walmart awlays looks like. They cannot turn stock over fast enough. Every isle has row after row of pallets just needing to be put away. Top that with not being able to find enough workers (they only start at 18.00 an hour) and you have a recipe for a nightmare that I cannot do more than once a month.
I’ll have more to write on Walmart later, right now I’m just venting.
