Wally World

They have an automated response!

What I sent:

Due to your company's recent political grandstanding over the sale of ammunition my family and I will be shopping elsewhere.

While this may limit our choices and cost us slightly more money; we've become fed up with businesses pushing a political agenda with a thin veneer of "this was our plan all along because of profits."

If it were merely a business decision removal of the product would have happened quietly and without a press release to curry favor from one side of the political aisle.

It did not take us very long at all to find a means to get our shopping done without darkening the doors of a Wal Mart.

The shareholders of Winn Dixie, Publix, Target and Amazon appreciate your decision to cease ammunition sales and your politically motivated method of announcing it to the world.
What replied in less than a minute (on a Sunday):

Hi Angus,

Thank you for contacting Walmart.com.

I appreciate you for bringing this up to us and we do understand your concerns. We value you as a customer and thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We will definitely report your concerns .

I understand that you want to know why Walmart will stop selling guns on our store. Please be advised that Walmart is barring shoppers from openly carrying guns in its stores and ending the sale of some types of ammunition in response to two deadly shootings at our stores. This helps our shopper and associate feel secured every time they shop at Walmart.

 Don't bother with the link, it's their press release about banning ammo sales.

OK, Corine, welcome to "more but harder" land and making the gun-free zone larger and more enticing!

I don't want to FEEL more secure, Corine, I want to BE more secure.

Fewer guns has never made anyone safer, especially when there's only ONE gun present in the hands of a nutcase.

  1. I find it kind of amusing that the response you quoted uses the SINGULAR for shopper AND associate.

  2. They don't seem to realize that they don't have the legal right to force a stop to open carry in some states? Or is it another instance of Liberals doing what they want regardless of the law?
    For example, in Ohio properties can't ban just open carry - they have to ban all carry or none, and the ban law if so toothless it is widely ignored.
    I cut back shopping there last year when they started refusing to sell anything to those under 21. I only use them as a convenience store now - I go there when no one else has what I need or when no one else is open.
