Walmart is disclaiming their own brand

July 5th, 2008

So, written out, it looks like: Walmart*

So, clearly, it’s an asterisk — a disclaimer. They are disclaiming their own brand, and who can blame them?

* Walmart may create grievous negative impact upon local business and community. Employees of Walmart may be woefully underpaid and lack basic health care. In-store goods may consist of off-brand or no-brand junk lacking in any metric of quality, produced almost exclusively by child labor under grossly unlawful conditions overseas. Customers may not mind their rights and privacies being violated and personal belongings being searched upon exiting the store. Offer void where prohibited.

    I guess a name change to “Big N Large” was out of the question.

    Nice! I see the logo as “Walmart, Asshole.”

    But I like your read better.

    I only wish I could afford to shop elsewhere, but it appears I’ve spent my entire paycheck on gasoline and heating oil for next year.

  4. Jeff says:

    You can afford gasoline???

    So… I suppose this means that you won’t be buying my soon-to-be-finished book “What I learned as a Walmart Associate” then, huh?

    I am truely amazed of all the bright comments. WOW!!! You ever thought about the people who are on fixed incomes, social security etc. There are not to many places they can afford to shop.It is bad enough that some people do not have better things to do then mock Walmart. I’am sure if you look deep enough, you will find things wrong with Kmart,Target,Sears ETC….Truth be known you still shop there.

    That’s why I don’t support local and buy online. Screw the world! Everyone’s to blame…

    I just blame Wal-mart moreso.
