1. They have what you need.
2. They have good prices.
3. They are clean (and if you've been to one that's not, please let me know when and where).
4. They treat their employees well.

On that last point, I don't care what Dateline and all those other busy-body gossip column genre shows think or say, Wal-Mart is an employer that has good people working for it. It also does its best to treat its employees well.

Wal-Mart reminds me of the old style of working: you can go in starting at the bottom (pushing carts), and with loyalty and hard work, move your way up to management. They understand about real life hardships and they are flexible and human with their employees. There are very few companies that still maintain such qualities. The people who work there love Wal-Mart (if you know any who don't, please let me know). Family loyalty is important in that business: the employees are also the customers, themselves and their families.

I am a die-hard Wal-Mart fan. So sue me.
