Question Wal-mart?

Personally, I love Walmart, great prices and great service. I'm asking this, because apparently they're the largest company in the world. Just curious if any routerforums.com users shop there.

By the way, yes means that you shop there regularly.

My friend works at Walmart, he thinks it pretty good. He just dosen't like what he's assigned to do. Which is, cleaning the washrooms and bringing in carts, but I guess you have to start somewhere ( He's a new employee ).
