I work at a Staples that happens to be next door to a Wal-Mart. On lunch breaks I tend to go over there and just browse.

Around January when the economic crunch started I noticed a flood of additional people start going there. The store was packed with everyone tightening their budgets and shopping at the cheaper place.

Yesterday I went there to walk around and was actually offered customer service. Twice. Traffic at that store has now cut back so far they are having cashiers walk the floor doing customer service.

People are now too broke to even shop at Wal-Mart.

I would love to watch Wal-mart have problems from its size and bad treatment of its employees. Over and over they've been caught paying people for 19 hours a week so they don't have to offer any benefits, but making them work 35 hours a week with no overtime pay. While it's not a sweatshop situation, it's dancing around the few protective laws we have left. So I don't shop there - I won't reward a company that won't take care of its employees, and certainly doesn't take care of their customers.
