Come on, Bentonville.
I'm sure that The Mountain shirt printers could do that since their products are in the stores now. Probably cost about $10 each.

Isn't Sam's Club owned by Walmart? If you're a business member, you can get free coffee every day. And, if you get there early enough, you can snag a free pastry.

No Sam's clubs here to belong to, nor do the local Wal*Marts do it. They actually came door to door to let those of us in the parking lot know.

Now you just had to let the cat - Er, coffee - out of the bag, didn't ya?


Now that the secret is "blown", let me remind my fellow AARP folks that most McDonalds offer a discounted price on "Senior" coffee. Anywhere from 49 to 79 cents for a dollar cup a joe.

Of course, Free is always better than half off.

It's not really free coffee at Sam's. A business membership is $35/year. I get the membership so I can get in before the riff-raff gets in.

I've heard that McDonald's coffee it rated as the best; better than $tarbuck$.

Have you ever parked in a space at Walmart that is reserved for Mothers with kids. I did and boy what an education I got from some wonderful young Mom. I never park in the disabled spots though.

I have been called a mother before, and I often act like a kid. Does that qualify me to park in the mother with kids spot? Will my motor home fit in that spot? That's where I am staying next time. Is it up front? Will it save me a few steps while carrying my chicken? I have never seen that spot before. Maybe it's a local thing.
How about and old drunk with a hang over spot? We deserve our own spot. Or a lazy old guy carrying a chicken spot. Mommy with kids????? Really? How about overweight mommy with too many kids spot. They would need lots of those spots at most Wal marts I have been to. How about a freaky guy wearing outlandish clothes and a mullet spot. Need I go on?

I drive a truck for Toys R Us, and those spots can be a sore spot with us, especially during the (thankfully now ended) Christmas season.

At several stores (such as the Galleria location in Houston), the spot is very convenient...and it blocks us from being able to leave the store after a delivery. I sat almost an hour there a few weeks ago while the store management pushed back a cart stand and then went to find the owner of the cars in the first two spaces. First, the second driver came out...not an expectant mother spot, and she definitely wasn't. We finally located the owner of the car in the expectant mother's spot--a gentleman of about 50.

We had a truck trapped behind the Jackson, MS, store for 8 hours; as fast as they could tow away illegally parked cars, more would fill the alley.

It's clear many Wal-Mart customers can't count to 10 or 20 (items only in this lane), so how should they read any parking restrictions?

The Walton family still lives in Arkansas, pays income taxes there, and otherwise help the economy there. Including DUI fines, if I remember the news correctly.

My problem is I don't like chicken. Got any other menu suggestions for Wally Dockers?

Never seen those spots at WM, but Fry's has a few. What's the point? To expedite getting the brats into the store to irritate people sooner? I can see a spot for pregnant women, though.

I don't understand. What if those spots weren't designated at all and anybody could park there?

I rarely park up close to the WM store entrance & never in the mother/ expectant mother/ handicap spots. I prefer my vehicles not to have dents & chips or scuffs from inconsiderate morons that can't open thier doors with out hitting the car next to them. These same people are to lazy to walk from the outer limits of the parking lot. So thats where I park. Although I expect some drunk might hit my truck out there since there isn't usually but a few vehicles parked in the near vicinity.
I try to get my chickens in the hot delivery bags for the long walk out to the parking lot.
