Their pet department is there to lure customers
into their store.... who are looking for cheap dog/cat/fish food.
I'm sure the fish area is a place where some parents leave their kids unattended to wreck havoc.
Every store is different based on who actually works there and the GM's store policies. Lower end employees are easily replaced, don't have much input, but the supervisors & managers have some leeway.
Most people who shop there.... go because it's convenient & overall their prices than most of their other competitors.
Low prices = some sort of trade off.
Instead of going to 7 different "specialty" stores, you can get ALL your shopping done there.
No need to go to a....
- auto parts store
- pet store
- clothing store
- grocery store
- basic home furnishings store
- home improvement
Just go to Walmart. You will end up saving gas, money & most importantly time.
If you have a problem with that specific department in the store, file a complaint. But you have to do in a effective manner or they'll add your outburst to the ignore pile.
- Walmart WANTS their customers to be happy, so you'll stay longer & BUY MORE.
- Keep in mind if you don't spend much there, they're not going to really care what you think. This rule applies to ALL profitable businesses.
- The customers that matter to them are the ones that consistently spend at least 25% or more of their weekly paycheck in their stores.
What Walmart offers in terms of products & goods, don't meet my needs, so I go elsewhere. That's why I haven't stepped inside a Walmart in over 2 years.
