My complaint is for the Walmart store in Pell City, Alabama. This is my hometown store and I frequent it a couple of times a week.
I usually spend SEVERAL hundred dollars a week. Today, I went in there to buy a couple of things and to also get a new lawnmower battery. I took my old battery in there several days ago, received there little "you haven't stole this ***" sticker but since they were out of stock, I took it home with me. Today, I enter again.
I walk passed the lady at the front that used to be called "greeters" you know...those cute little old people that can't live off of social security alone. Well, these are no longer "greeters". They have turned into some kind of reciept checking hound dog that will badger the customers. This lady begin to yell at me when I walked passed her with the battery in the cart (MY battery might I remind you).
She said that I had to have a sticker on the battery. I told her that I had a sticker on it from the other day. She made this huge ordeal about how that sticker was not good and I needed one with the correct date on it. Well, I told her there my battery was so do whatever she needed to.
After my blood pressure went down to normal levels, I continued my shopping. I was planning on trying on a bathing suit and went over to the women's dressing rooms. I have two small children, one of which can't walk yet and always bring my shopping cart into the big dressing room so the kids can sit in it while I try on the stuff. Well, this lady looked at me today and said "you are gonna have to take the kid out of the buggy before you can go in." I explained to her that I always go in with my cart and she said that because I had something in it, I could not take it inside.
Well, first off let me explain to you what was in the cart... it was empty except for a GALLON size jug of sweet tea! Okay, so I understand them wanting to cut down on theft...but I am a lady that is 5'4" and 135lbs. Where in God's green earth would I find to put a gallon size jug so that I could steal it????
I told that lady that Walmart was completely ridiculous and I was not having my child crawl around on their nasty floors while I tryed on a bathing suit. I threw it down and walked off. I thought that businesses were supposed to make their customers feel welcomed. This Walmart store is completely opposite.
From the time you walk in to the time you walk out, they make you feel like a hardened criminal. Maybe next time I will just go ahead and wear a *** orange jumpsuit and shackels.
