    I can make a list .... Fishing dept, video game section for my kids, little Holiday gifts and candy. Some lawn care supplies. Paints, household items pillows etc.

    I go there quite often and find it the easiest place to get what i need and get out :D

    There is strong feelings about Bush too but he still got elected for a second term.The fact that Walmart always has a full parking lot says something.

    Wal-Mart is like Crack.

    Shop there, and you not only hurt yourself, but contribute to the decline of American wages.

    Their cult-like hiring and management practices would really surprise you.

    You must be pro union. Pay someone 17/hr with limited to no skill work(and don't forget about the 4 breaks a shift).

    As far as gas goes,
    I've heard the way most two stroke equipment is running so lean that running the premium fuel is a "life extender"?! My dealer always says to run high test in everything but I don't see a difference. I do run high test every now and then but mostly they get regular.

    Do a search on the explanation of octane and decide for yourself if higher amounts would benefit. Most people don't even know what high octane really means.

    anybody have a Home Depot fuel store near you? Just curious on the price comparisons.
    We got one being built near us and it's closer than Wally World.
