Okay, so if you’ve checked out the new Walmart in Clearbrook, you know it’s social hour central. I had a chance to get over there this weekend and it was quite hillarious!
It was almost like being in an airport and watching all the people pass by. You check out people’s clothes, listen to their loud banter on their cellphone, watch their hurried little feet try to make it to the gate. At Walmart…the same thing. People were so excited! I was ready for a few of them to break out in song and dance. Not to mention, people were so nice to each other. In Walmart, that’s usually not the case. It’s more like would you and your cart move out of my way?
Something else I observed, the store had more than 15 check out lanes open! I guess that’s all part of the grand appeal for the grand opening. How long do you think that, along with the friendly customers, and clean aisles will last?
Either way, Walmart welcome – because truly its the only store where you can buy milk at the same time you get your car serviced, nails done, pick up a ceiling fan and order a casket at the same time. The only thing you can’t do is get your dog groomed….yet!
