I used to go to Walmart

I used to go to Walmart frequently, then they "improved" and "remodeled" it. I now hate going and try to avoid it whenever possible.

I grew up with no Walmart or

I grew up with no Walmart or a mall. We had a couple little mom and pop dry goods, hardware stores and a pharmacy. You had to drive from Harlem to downtown to go shopping. Finally, a Roses and JM Fields. It's nice to hop in the car and run to Walmart real quick and not make a day of it. So many fun things to do with kids nowadays. Walmart gives me extra time for me and the little one.
