After having a new set of tire installed on my van so that i was safe on the hyw. I found out 150 miles from home in the middel of nowhere that the walmart service center did not tighten the front lug nuts on my car.thanks to a indiana state tropper stoped and yelled at me for driving an unsafe car on his hyw.untill i showed him the service report that tires had just been installed.witch he thankfully put in his report.since walmart corp.office will not return any of my calls reguarding this matter.i have filed a claim with the store that did the work.with same result. After being told twice by store manager somone will be in contact with me.it has been allmost two weeks and many calls latter i am no closer to geting this issue resolved.

I know you big wigs really don’t care if you have my business or not but you lost me as a major shopper 5 years ago. But now you have really stooped low FALSE ADVERTISING! ok so the majority of the country has been BRAINWASHED by the WAL-MART WAY. Your weekly ad had a 1/2 cut boneless pork loin for 1.97 # I visited many many stores to find this item. In matter of fact took the ad pointed it out to the store managers and meat dept. mgr. 2 of them actually told me the exact item that they had that was advertised was what they got for the promotion but they were marked 3.38 per # . They would not honor the price in the ad because everything is pre-marked. SO how many unsuspecting shoppers did you take advantage of in this little game of yours? here in the central valley of California with its population- probably quite a few- and they never even realized it. So the Christmas shopping I have done so far is going back and I hope to never return to Wal-Mart again you are scoundrels! Oh and by the way I take many handicapped and elderly shopping they won’t be going there either but you have millions of dedicated sheep to take advantage of so at least I have had the chance to vent my disdain for your practices and thank you for that.

WARNING CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS : I bought these 2 Christmas Gifts and had them shipped up North. I am appalled at the way they came. They were Not put in a shipping box , All it had was a shipping Label ,Delivered by UPS And the Gifts were brought in the house by the Receivers of the gift so now there’s NO CHRISTMAS SURPRISE . I’ LL HAVE TO FIND SOMEONE TO BRING THEM BACK . WHY BUY A GIFT TO SURPRISE SOMEONE IT A BUNCH OF DUMMIES DONT KNOW HOW TO DO THEIR JOBS. WHAT IF IT WAS FOR A CHILD WHO HAD THEIR HEART ON SANTA BRING IT AND IT COMES 5 WEEKS EARLY ! I shop at Walmart.com all the time and I do intend to get in touch with the Corporation regarding this matter . I’m Very Upset and Disappointed . THEY DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE !!

As a customer I am sure you could care less what I think as long as many other people will shop at your stores. Who am I but to complain about my experience as a customer. Well I say this whether you care or not with several bad business dealings with wal mart I continue to shop but as a today I will not longer as long as I live shop at walmart ever. I went to several stores in hopes of getting the tv advertised sales however no stores had them nor would they give a rain check for the tv, disappointed I am and as stated you may not care but I will shop and spend my money at other stores and certainly I don’t care about a price match is what one of the store managers told me. How can you price match if you can’t even sell the items that you advertise to sell. As stated you have just lost a customer for my life time and certainly my children and grandchildren will know this story as to never shop at walmarts either.
