  • New Look Sign at Walmart

    I just noticed today that Walmart near me has a new sign on the front of the building. At night it's hard to even see it. The new sign is dark blue letters that are back lit but very dim. Just to the right of the t is a yellow asterisk that's also dimly back lit at night. I think this is stupid. The old sign could be seen clearly at a good distance. The new one is so poor I'm sure people will drive by and not see it. I'm sure the locals and regular customers won't pass by but people that are not used to a given location may well pass by at night. I bet it won't be long until they switch back to their older signs.

    On the other hand their buildings are so darn ugly if you see them you know you're at Walmart so they don't even need a sign on the building. They just need a good one by each driveway and to have it in big letters ENTER or EXIT.

    This thread really wasn't worth the effort to post it. Please only reply if you have seen the new type of sign and have any feelings about it.

      Come on and clean up behind yourself. While I do feel about the same way we need to watch language on the forum.
      I personally hope they learn the hard way about the signs. Let customers shop somewhere else for now.

        I don't agree or like how Walmart treats their employees, but it's agreat place to shop. I might put in an application for work, just hope they don't do drug testing or polygraph.

          There is a Walmart about 4 miles from me. 12 miles further are the only other choices. I don't support walmart so I choose to drive the extra miles.

                Major chaos without a doubt. It would be a mad rush for those mom and pop stores they ran out of business to get reopened and start selling products that aren't made in china ****. Mass confusion for sure.

                          I hope by others you mean local family owned stores as any big box store is just as bad. Even Home Depot and Lowes. Also you should point out the film is the same lopsided propaganda used by people like Micheal Moore. A true documentary would actually explore the the positive and negative effects and allow the viewer to decide.

                              From YouTubes site:

                              " This video has been removed due to terms of use violation. "

                              Maybe that's a polite way to say its been censored.

                              Knary50: Yes. it may be a little one sided. Can you point me to a list of good that WalMart has done besides trying to buy local approval by passing money out to local causes. Does the list compare to the list of wrongs that have piled up? The other big stores are not far behind its true, but WalMart pioneered and pushed for many of the tactics they all use now. Like keeping everyone under 32 hours so you don't have to give the bennies, etc.

                              Yes, I will go to the local HW and paint stores and to the parts counters for plumbing and electrical needs when possible. If I go to buy $200 in work clothes WalMart won't even miss me if I don't show up, but a $200 sale to a local store can really help make for a nice days take. Of course $200 only gets you 5 pair of Carhartts around here now a days.
