With all that is happening within our communities, nation and the world, I had an experience with our local Walmart that really annoyed me!
My husband and I drove to Walmart to get sanitizing items. I stopped one of the managers, and I describe him as a sorry manager at that! I asked him if they had any sanitizing products. His reply, “No. We sold all we had last night when we got them.”
“Do you have any idea when you will get some more?”
He cast me a smug facial expression. “Well, it’s like this. When we get them, we sell out immediately.”
“I suppose you are not limiting the items?”
“Nope. First come first serve and customers can buy all they want.”
“In other words, you permit them to stockpile or hoard?”
“Lady, we can’t tell the customers they can only buy a few.”
I approached him closer. “Oh, yes you can. I worked in advertising and we limited products all the time.”
“Not at this Walmart.”
“Never did I say I worked at Walmart. And now, maybe I’ll shop elsewhere.”
Moral of this story – stay away from the West Ashley Circle of Walmart, Charleston, SC. They only care about the hoarders. NOT THEIR CUSTOMERS! Management only cares about how much they sell – not customers who need these products too!
Perhaps I’ll shop elsewhere! That manager needs to get another job!
