To Wal-Mart or Not to Wal-Mart?
That is the Question.

Consumers are deeply divided over Wal-Mart, sending it to the top of the charts as both the best and the worst retailer, according to an American Demographics Perception Study.

It's sort of another example of "we get what we want."

We want cheap prices so Wal-Mart figures out how to deliver them. And we flock there. Wal-Mart is likely the largest customer for most consumer brand manufacturers, and these manufacturers have to make changes to meet the low price demand while still holding onto profit. So they move their factories to China and jobs disappear in America.

We like the cheap prices, but we want to keep our jobs.
So we both love and hate Wal-Mart.
