It is all relative to your experience I guess. When I had friends come from New York City they were blown away by how large and open all the grocery stores are in my city. When I took them to a superwalmart they about pooted their pants.
    It was strange when Lidl first came over here..you'd get sort of square things in the middle of the store containing men's trousers...spaghetti sauce...and scuba diving equipment..
    Shampoo's in Greek...Israeli washing powders..you didn't really know what the hell you were buying!!

    That's not what they do: they just run.

    Yeah, I used to be one of them: it's called "picket duty". You give up a day or show on the weekend with some guys from work and you walk the boards for a day. It's support.

    It's not the businesses right to run from an organizing drive or it wouldn't be illegal.

    See what you're not seeing in all of this is that running and other illegal activity by walmart has just fanned the flames of the drive; it's getting bigger.

    yep it is a businesses right to not do business in an area. they can deem that the area is no longer profitable and that the store is not worth keeping open. not really. so they are doing nothing illegal. the store can no longer support itself.

    the only people showing up to protest are union thugs that should be working.
