Wal-Mart...possibly the greatest supermarket on earth!
OK so we all have popped down to our local Tesco or even Asda at some time in the past but if you are relatively new to the USA I can definitely recommended that you take a trip to Wal-Mart for without doubt it definitely earns its label of the biggest supermarket chain in the world
You often hear the phrase “I bet they sell it at Wal-Mart” and its 99% correct because there is very little that they don’t sell and I have never been in a store like it except perhaps for Home Depot which is a DIY store but that a whole different guide.
When they built a Wal-Mart close to our vacation home on the 27 we knew this was a good move and would prove to be popular with guests and ourselves alike, our first trip was made without any real concept of how big the store really was.
Upon arriving at the car park it was clear Wal-Mart was very big the physical size of the store from the outside was very large, upon entering the store we were greeted by an store employee with the usual phrase “how are you doing today” all employees were wearing a blue tabard clearly identifying them as staff with the phrase “how can I help you “on the reverse side.
Once inside the building the store is huge and you are faced with the unfamiliarity of this new store “where to start” well as with all things new its best to start at the beginning and work your way through logically.
A Word of warning though if this is your first visit allow a couple of hours or even longer unless you are visiting for a few specific items you will spend much longer working your way through the store.Yes even the men and teenagers in the party will find loads of things to look at they sell everything that you would find in a normal UK supermarket but they have a much larger choice of brands.
They also all have a large gardening area within the store where you can buy a single plant to a massive USA style barbeque costing several 1000 $ or garden furniture to a wheel barrow
A favourite area for the girls in the party is the hair and beauty goods where there are so many hair shampoos and conditioners it’s simply unbelievable especially if you’re a guy why do women need so many different types of shampoo and conditioner its one of life’s mystery. My wife just seems to vanish into this area for ages, and always finds lots of girly things to keep her supplied during our stay.
